You've got to be a special kind of fan (and have a special kind of spouse) to get a football-themed cake past the gatekeepers of your wedding, but apparently a Twitter user named @bdeoff has just such a friend.

Behold the J.J. Watt wedding cake. That's a masterwork of culinary art, and bravo to the bride for allowing such an eyecatching object within three miles of her on her wedding day. Where do you even start to cut into that thing? Would you have the guts to take a cake knife to that helmet? We've seen what Watt can do to quarterbacks ... and we've seen enough reality shows to know that might just be an elaborate goof and the real Watt is hidden within.

That last idea is probably not true, alas. So far, there's been no response from Watt.

The cake is the creation of Who Made The Cake?, a Houston cake decorator with plenty of experience in this area. Last year, according to owner Nadine Moon, the company created a six-foot-tall Texans player cake. And how much did something like this cost? The company won't disclose an exact price, but says that a cake like this would cost $10 per serving. You do the math from there.

It's outstanding work. We're not quite sure how this behemoth stays together, but it's pretty darn accurate. Shoot, we'd draft that cake to play defense for the Jaguars right now.
