Reporter: For months, the NFL has been asking fans to submit their favorite recipes.
We wanted to make sure that we could give you the most authentic flavor that you are looking for.
Reporter “You’ve got to go all out,” the team told fans.
The NFL says that the recipe that was chosen is a combination of flavors, not just a few of them.
We are trying to make a great cake, and we are trying not to overdo it.
The cake, the cream cheese frosting and the vanilla custard, the buttercream frosting.
We have a great mix of flavors.
We think that the fans are going to love it.
Reporter This is your birthday cake.
This is our birthday cake, our favorite cake, my husband’s favorite cake.
Reporter It’s called the king cake, it’s a king cake.
It is an all-time favorite.
We’re proud of it.
But I can tell you, it does take a little bit of time, it takes a little while, and that’s what makes it so special.
Reporter Here’s how the fans were invited to submit a recipe.
We want to give you all a great flavor, so you can make it and you can enjoy it.
And I want to thank all the great recipes that we received.
Reporter The NFL has now sent out 50,000 birthday cake invitations to fans.
So far, we’ve received 30,000 of them and that is a great number.
This number of invitations is an incredible response, and it is a very positive response, especially given that we’ve had this request for a long time.
And it means a lot to us that the NFL is taking advantage of the fan base and the excitement that they’re feeling.
And we are so grateful for all the feedback and we appreciate that.
We also want to take a moment to recognize the incredible team that the Super Bowl champion Cleveland Browns put out to celebrate the birthday of their greatest player.
It was the Browns who gave me this gift.
The Browns gave me a gift, and I want you to know that you’re a great team, and you’re an amazing person.
Reporter And you know, for me, it was a little overwhelming to have to go to work on the last day of the season.
I thought it would be a great time to say thank you to the fans, and to show that I love you.
Reporter So I want everyone to know I really appreciate it.
We’ve had a lot of people coming up to me on the street and saying thank you.
It means a great deal to me, and thank you, everybody.
And just know, I’m going to make it through this season.
