Kapler gets 'steak cake' from Giants for his 46th birthday


Gabe Kapler celebrated his 46th birthday on Saturday the only way he knows out, by eating a lot of ... protein? 

Not quite.

After the Giants beat the Houston Astros 8-6 at Oracle Park, the players and coaches surprised their manager with a massive cake that looks like a tomahawk steak with a baked potato on the side. 

“The guys did get me a nice cake in the shape of a steak, which I thought was super creative," Kapler told reporters after the game. "I’m looking forward to getting in there and eating it with them.” 

What does it taste like? Did anyone eat it? Where did it come from? There are so many questions that come to mind. 

“I don’t know (what it was made out of), I didn't see it cut into," Kapler said. "It had candles in it, and it was a big, tomahawk ribeye shape with a pad of butter on it and then a potato which was totally out of place because these guys know that I won't eat that.

"The steak was really cool looking. I don’t know what is in the middle of it yet, I'm going to have to go find out.”

The Giants players were just as enamored with the bizarre cake as Kapler was.


“It’s a cake that looks like a steak ... with a side of a baked potato. That might also be a cake too,” first baseman Darin Ruf told reporters postgame.

So, did anyone eat it? Have any of our questions been answered?

“It was really cool, it was really nice...I’ve never actually seen anything like that, but a bunch of guys were taking pictures of it," LaMonte Wade Jr. said postgame. "I’m pretty sure nobody really ate it because everybody wanted to take pictures and were all in awe of it.”

Come on guys, the people need to know.

If you're looking for a good gift for a protein fanatic in your life, look no further than Kapler's "steak cake."
