RbcakeEd Zipprich’s civic-minded dessert, complete with iceboat logo.

Turns out Red Bank’s centennial did not go completely overlooked this weekend.

River Road resident Ed Zipprich and his partner, JP Nicolaides, threw a little party for neighbors and friends that featured the cake shown above.

In response to our posting earlier today — in which we asked “Where’s the cake?” — Zipprich tells us, via an email, “I have the birthday cake.”

(Doesn’t quite have the dark resonance of “I drink your milkshake,” but hey, it’s a party.)

Zipprich, voters will recall, ran for council on the Democratic ticket last year but came up short at the polls, losing to Grace Cangemi.

He’s also a member of the Historic Preservation Commission and has been involved in the effort to save the T. Thomas Fortune House from demolition.

P.S.: Piece o’ Cake in Shrewsbury made the dessert.
