How sweet it is! New Orleans is feeling the sugar-filled love from the Universe this week. With a new mayor and a Super Bowl win in one weekend and Mardi Gras in full effect with Valentine’s Day around the corner, Sucré is busier than ever. We’ve never been happier. To celebrate some of that WHO DAT love, we wanted to share with you some fun, even astonishing facts, about the Saints recent Super Bowl win.
Sunday was Super Bowl 44
Obama is the 44th president
There are 44 days from Christmas to the Super Bowl
The Saints franchise is 44 years old
Sunday was 4 years and 4 months since Katrina
Saints won the NFC Championship in 4 minutes and 44 seconds in overtime with a 40-yard field goal
Does that sound like destiny or what? Go Saints! And in what is now being called Lombardi Gras, we New Orleanians are celebrating in fashion tonight with a parade through downtown New Orleans where over 250 players and staff from the Saints will be in attendance. Over 30,000 people showed up at the airport when the Saints arrived from Miami and it’s estimated that number will easily double (if not triple) for tonight’s parade.
Here at Sucré, we celebrated the Saints all season, making Saints and all of the other NFL teams’ helmets for each game. They sold like wildfire, especially once it was official the Saints were heading to the playoffs.
Facts about the helmet cakes:
200 Saints helmets and a few specialty XL for birthdays and special events
20 for first playoff game
35 for NFC Championship
50 for Super Bowl
Takes a few hours to make each one and we do them in batches of 5 to 10 at a time
