The taste of victory: Auburn fan shows off Iron Bowl Kick-Six inspired wedding cake

Monday June 2nd, 2014

We've seen some quality sports-themed wedding cakes over the last few years, and a newly crafted creation may rank among the best of the bunch. On Monday, Auburn fan Billy Gilley posted a photo of his Auburn-themed groom's cake modeled after Jordan-Hare Stadium during last season's Iron Bowl. The scoreboard shows a 28-28 tie between Auburn and Alabama with one second remaining. That was precisely the moment when the Tigers' Chris Davis Jr. returned a missed field goal 109 yards for his iconic game-winning touchdown. 

The only thing missing from the cake? The path of Davis' return painted on the field. Victory truly is sweet.
