Romney's having his fluffernutter and eating it too

Washington (CNN) - The caption could read: "A party ain't a party till Mitt Romney eats his fluffernutter cake."

On Tuesday, Romney had his cake – and ate it too – as he celebrated his birthday. Eldest son Tagg Romney put out pictures of his father, apparently in full office party mode, on the social media site Instagram.

In one picture, Romney smiled broadly as he donned a birthday party hat. Before him sat birthday cupcakes lighted with candles. A can of Diet Coke sat nearby, seemingly to wash it all down.

A second picture showed Romney eating a cupcake. Fluffernutter is a white bread sandwich containing peanut butter and marshmallow crème. Romney was known during the campaign for his penchant for peanut butter and honey sandwiches - but it is his birthday after all.

The former Republican presidential nominee turned 66. The son captioned the Instagram picture: "Happy 66th Dad. Can't beat a fluffernutter cupcake."

    I remember I had asked my mom to buy that stuff to go with peanut butter. She bought some. When she realized that it was marshmallow creme, all sugar. ... man, was I in trouble. Deep trouble. Gttta switch trouble. Hop, skip, and a jump around the room trouble. Who knew that a little piece of grass could burn.

    @Chris: "Yeah, America dodged a bullet with this guy alright, and the bullet we got sits up in the White House and hit America right between the eyes. I'd rather take the dodged bullet than the one between the eyes."

    Wow, why don't you like positive private sector job growth EVERY MONTH since May 2009? Or Bin Laden dead? Or the housing market rebounding? Or being out of Iraq and getting out of Afghanistan? My 401K has completely recovered after the 2007 crash; how's your doing?

    Are things perfect? No. Are they getting better? Yes. Do you have the maturity to stop whining and start being part of the solution or stay part of the problem? I hope so.
