Chef Gronk Turns 'Cake Boss' to Help Pediatric Cancer Patients Before Icing the Chiefs

Posted by: Gronkowski

The Kansas City Chiefs are going to wish Gronk was still in the kitchen and not on the field at Gillette on Sunday …

But before the Patriots threaten to ruin the Chiefs perfect 2018 record and rain on their parade, Gronk spent time with three young Dana-Farber Cancer Institute pediatric patients at Stop & Shop in Foxboro last week.

Dressed in an apron and armed with his best icing cone, the big fella got his bake on to create artistic confectionary for a good cause – and had a sweet, messy blast while doing it.

"I even got frosting, flour, all over me," Gronk said afterwards. "That's when you know it's a good day."

It’s not every day that these kids get to make a mess and hang out with their favorite Patriot player, and it’s not one they are going to quickly forget.

"It's just a great memory and something we can look back on in the tough times," Michael Adams, who was there with his daughter Carely, told "It's stuff we can talk about, laugh about and reflect upon. It's something very special."

You know what else the kids won’t forget? The Patriots-Chiefs matchup as Rob gave them and their families free tickets.

As one smart young Pats fans replied when asked if he was excited about the game: "I'm excited if they win but not excited if the lose." That's how we all feel, kiddo. 

The decorated football-themed cake will also be a guest of honor as Stop & Shop makes a $2.5 million donation to Dana-Farber, as part of its Help Cure Childhood Cancer campaign.
