What is the best way to celebrate your birthday if you are a fan of Inter Milan? Well, ideally by watching Inter win the Milan Derby whilst eating a delicious birthday cake!
For one fanatical Inter fan, one of these two things will play out.
Life-long Inter supporter Giuseppe from Bedford, England, celebrates his 60th birthday ahead of the Milan Derby on Saturday.
Bedford’s iconic Italian cake shop La Rondine, which is owned by the father of Italian Football Podcast co-host Carlo Garganese, made a special Inter-themed birthday cake for Giuseppe.
La Rondine sculpted traditional Italian sponge filled with Italian patisserie cream into the shape of a football shirt before then adding the Nerazzurri colours with handmade sugar icing.
Handmade sugar icing items were also constructed and added onto the shirt such as the Inter and Nike logos, the Pirelli name and the Italy flag.
Buon Compleanno Giuseppe, which means ‘Happy birthday Giuseppe, was written on the cake board.

La Rondine often makes Italian football cakes and has created Inter Milan, AC Milan, Juventus, Napoli and Italy national team cakes in the recent past.
With the Inter birthday cake in hand, birthday boy Giuseppe will be hoping to celebrate the derby with a tasty win.
Inter are the designated home team in the Derby della Madoninna on Saturday evening.
The big match kicks off at 1800 CET at San Siro.
Both teams come into the match in fantastic form, having won each of their first three matches of the Serie A season.
Inter are yet to concede a goal having beaten Monza 2-0, Cagliari 2-0 and Fiorentina 4-0.
Milan, meanwhile, beat Bologna 2-0, Torino 4-1 and Roma 2-1.
Inter are expected to be unchanged for the game, while Milan are hoping that Olivier Giroud is at full fitness after he suffered an injury for France on international duty.
