You know how we know James Harden has officially made it? Is it because he was given the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award for the 2011-2012 season and has helped lead the Thunder to the Western Conference finals? That helps, but there’s more to it than that. As GiANT Impact CEO Jeremie Kubicek showed us on Twitter Tuesday night, Harden has been made into a cake by the folks at Homeland Stores.
As far as honorary cakes are concerned, this is one of the most detailed we’ve ever seen. Athletes have been made into cakes before, but they usually consist of a two-dimensional picture or portrait of the athlete on top. As you can see, this is Harden’s entire head (beard included) in cake form. This is more in line with the Robert Griffin III sandwich than anything else we’ve witnessed. Perhaps food artists are just that much more talented these days.
