The emergence of Colin Kaepernick's celebrity is real.
That is evident by the fact that a bakery in California has created a cake in the likeness of the San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks tattooed arm. Obviously this baker is trying to benefit from the "Kaepernicking" phenomenon, but it's still really cool. Pretty sweet work on this dessert, although I doubt it will still taste good next Sunday for the big game.
But, it doesn't stop there. A website called Kaepertat.com has recently popped up, and it is selling lifesize temporary versions of the NFC champion QB's tattoo's. According to the website, "KaeperTats are the secret sauce behind San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s dismantling of his opponents, the source of his determination to be the NFL’s best. Join in the Kaepernicking rage with your own KaeperTat collection. Sit back, enjoy your day, and let your KaeperTat lead you to success."
I don't know about all that, but it sure would be pretty awesome to hand some of these out at a 49er fan's superbowl party. Gotta have faith!
