Rob Gronkowski to be immortalized: in cake formby Christopher C. Wuensch on Nov. 12, 2012, under Sports
In a world that sports a Cake Boss, Kings Cakes and even an Ace of Cakes, there can be only one who is the sweetest of them all.
And Rob Gronkowski – all 6 feet, 6 inches and 265 pounds of him – thinks he’s the Royal Icing.
The New England Patriots’ tight end is teaming with Boston’s Montillo Baking Company, in conjunction with Dunkin Donuts, to create a life-size cake of Gronk. Montillo previously baked an life-size cake of homage of Rocky Marciano.
The cake (presumably a pound cake) is part of a promotional contest for Dunkin Donuts, of which the former University of Arizona star is a pitchman.
According to Dunkin Donuts, there were several ways to get to meet Gronk and his flour stunt double:
“There are four (4) methods of entry: Three (3) methods via Facebook: Submit (a) a photo of yourself spiking a football (hereinafter “Gronking”), or (b) a video of yourself Gronking, or (c) a photo of yourself next to a Gronk standee in a participating Dunkin’ Donuts location.”
I can only assume the winner won with an entry of himself spiking a football into a wedding cake.
