TAMPA ― What do you get the guy who has everything?
Bucs quarterback Tom Brady turned 45 today, and running back Leonard Fournette struggled with how to commemorate the big occasion until he came up with the answer on Tuesday.
He turned to The Cake Girl bakery in Tampa and ordered a 100-percent custom and sculpted GOAT cake that was delivered to AdventHealth Training Center.
Brady is known for a strict diet regimen that typically doesn’t include sugar. The cake was completely edible and a mix of fondant and buttercream.
“With him, his diet is strict,” Fournette said. “... He doesn’t eat sugar.”
The cake was made by Kristina Lavallee and her bakers at The Cake Girl.
“It’s always fun to work with our Tampa Bay Bucs,” Lavallee said. “It was such an honor to make a cake for Brady’s 45th birthday.”
Bucs coach Todd Bowles had another idea for what to get Brady.
“As long as we keep him upright and he’s walking,” he said, “that’s a great birthday.”
