    Apparently the poem James Franco shared on his birthday was only the beginning.

    In town to receive the HBO Latin America Ally Award at the 15th annual Miami LGBT Film Festival, the newly 35-year-old actor kept the celebration going with a fab fetish cake.

    Franco, his pal Cassandra Simon, his Interior. Leather Bar codirector Travis Matthews and filmmaker John Cameron Mitchell—all of whose first names are written in icing amid the whip and other sex toys topping the racy dessert—commissioned the cake from specialty bakery Caked By Two, according to the Miami New Times.

    But the real question is: What flavor was it on the inside?!

    "Miami bday," Franco nonchalantly wrote on WhoSay, where he posted a pic of the cake and other photos from his trip.

    Franco and Matthews' Interior. Leather Bar is a (stay with us, here) docudrama starring the two of them as themselves as they tackle a film project, the point of which is to try to reimagine the 40 minutes of hardcore footage that was ultimately deleted from the 1980 psychosexual thriller Cruising, about a serial killer targeting gay men on the S&M scene.

    "I'm just happy that this film that we've made seems to have a great life and I'm glad that people are responding to it," Franco he told the South Florida Gay News last week. "Now that I've been doing movies for 16 years I find that the most exciting movies and most gratifying experiences are when you make films that get people talking, get people to think or have conversations.

    The Oz the Great and Powerful star also donned a wedding ring at one point in Miami to show his support for legalizing gay marriage, posting a picture with the simple caption, "Same sex marriage."
