The case could be made that the grinning, goofy Rob Gronkowski has long lived life in a way that allows him to have his cake and eat it, too.

But Tuesday that took on a whole new meaning for the Patriots tight end.

As part of a luncheon where Dunkin' Donuts welcomed winners of the "Great DD Gronk Off" to Gillette Stadium, Gronkowski was presented with a life-size cake of himself made by Montilio's Baking Co. of Brockton -- which once made a similar cake for Rocky Marciano. According to a Globe story it's made of enough ingredients to bake 15 sheet cakes, but as you can see in the photo above (which was tweeted by @Patriots), even that's still not quite enough to capture the true mass of New England's favorite 6-foot, 6-inch man-child.

Fans earned their way into the lunch, which included a Q-and-A session with Gronk as well as the cake's unveiling, by posting pictures of themselves posing in a Dunkin' Donuts store with a cardboard cutout of the tight end, or by posting a video of themselves -- what else? -- spiking a football.

Indeed, the legendary life of Gronk just keeps getting better.
