Montilio's Creates a Life-Size Cake Replica of Rob Gronkowski
A Brockton-based bakery has teamed up with the world's largest coffee and baked goods chain to create a cake version of one of Boston's most beloved sports figures.
The Boston Globe is reporting that Montilio's has made a life-size cake replica of tight end Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots. The cake sculpture, which was made for the "DD Gronkoff" Facebook sweepstakes for Dunkin' Donuts (for whom Gronk is a spokesperson), took about 80 hours to make and has enough ingredients for 15 sheet-cakes, according to the article. The toughest part of the process was apparently getting Gronk's haircut right, which took nearly a whole day to do.
The cake will be unveiled today at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, with winners of the contest getting to meet the Patriots player--as well as dining on Dunkin' Donuts Bakery Sandwiches.
