Kristina Lavallee, founder and CEO of The Cake Girl, said, “He was like, ‘Oh, I need a cake for Tom.’ You mean Tom Brady?”
Yes, that Tom. This week, Fournette ordered his GOAT a custom his birthday cake with his image and tweeted, “Happy early birthday to my old head @tombrady.” He called on the Tampa cake girls to make it happen.
“He said, ‘I want a goat.’ Am I like a 3D goat? Face? Body?” Lavallee shared. “So we sent him some ideas and he said that’s exactly what I want.”
It took three large-sized cakes, a lot of cutting and carving, meticulous piping, and “choosing the perfect color and airbrushing all the little details.”
It took a total of 8 hours of work, 4 of which I spent alone decorating.

good question. What is the goat price?
“A lot of money,” Lavallee laughed. “Such a cake is obviously not cheap just because it’s a lot of work. But it’s a few hundred dollars.”

“I started making bread when I was a little girl,” she said.
She graduated from UCF and took The Cake Girl from a farmer’s market to a dessert truck and finally bricks and mortar.
“I would never have thought like where we are today,” Lavallee said. “I appreciate it very much.”
Now the burning problem remains.
“I just want to know if Tom Brady liked the cake,” Lavallee said.
QB follows a strict diet. But perhaps GOAT can make an exception for “best cake ever”.
“Little Birdie said they were out of cake, which is a good sign. I think they really liked it,” Lavallee shared.
