Must-see: Mike Evans' Harry Potter-themed groom's cake



We were drifting perilously close to TMZ status with a blog post on Mike Evans' wedding over the weekend, so to come back to it is questionable, but ... the Bucs receiver, never shy about his love of Harry Potter, had a Hogwarts-themed groom's cake.

Here's a photo -- four tiers, for houses Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin and Hufflepuff -- with Harry's owl Hedwig in a cage on top. Look close, you'll see Harry's glasses, a wand, the Marauder's Map and even a golden snitch.

It's outstanding, even if we're a few years removed from our last reading. He's confessed to owning Harry Potter robes, blankets, everything that the biggest fans of the books and movies have.

"The funny thing when I met him was that he loves Harry Potter, because he doesn't look like he watches Harry Potter," Ashli Dotson, now his wife, told USA Today last summer.
