With one swing of a bat, Jayson Werth transformed himself from frustrating $126 million man into postseason hero on Thursday night. The Nationals forced a Game 5 in their NLDS series against the Cardinals thanks to Werth’s walk-off home run, which earned him the right to have himself turned into a cupcake. As you can see from the photo above, Lara Stuckey from Fluffy Thoughts Cakes designed a fantastic Werth cupcake after watching his game-winning homer. “We’ve been selling Nats cupcakes all week,” Stuckey told Sarah Kogod of D.C. Sports Bog. “But after last night, we knew that we had to make a special one just for Werth.” Stuckey said the Werth cupcakes go for $5.00 each. Regular Nationals cupcakes sell for $2.50 and have been a huge hit. As we learned from works of art like this cake or this fruit arrangement that were modeled after Thunder star James Harden, popular players with beards can inspire people do some pretty amazing things.
