With Deflategate still on everyone’s minds this football season, a clever bride pranked her new husband with a groom’s cake that poked fun of their rival football allegiances.  

The Giants fan and bride Liz Gigliotti had a groom’s cake made for Patriots fan and fiance Dave featuring a slightly deflated football and Tom Brady cake topper.  Of course, Liz had to take the trolling one step further by having the New England quarterback dressed in a blue baseball cap emblazoned with the Patriots logo; a white, sleeveless tea-length wedding dress; and red high heels – which matched his bouquet of red roses.

The Tom Brady look-alike was designed by, while the cake was created by Cakes by Karen.  Wedding photographer Megan Dailor of Megan Dailor Photography captured the hilarious groom’s cake and shared the images on her Instagram account.

In the two cake-only close-ups, Dailor wrote, “#tombrady in a dress and heels on top of a deflated football cake (smile emojis) topper by @minimecity cake by Cakes by Karen.”

As for the groom, Dailor said on Facebook that he “was an awesome sport” about his bride’s surprise. In an Instagram of the groom licking frosting off the mini Tom Brady cake topper, Dailor wrote, “Dave dealt with his surprise #tombrady #deflategate #groomscake with style lol!”
