Juventus' Federico Bernardeschi celebrates birthday with massive cake

There are birthday cakes, and then there are birthday cakes.

Federico Bernardeschi certainly found the right one when celebrating his 24th birthday on Friday, posing with a three-tiered, appropriately striped black-and-white cake -- one topped off by cupcakes, a pair of ceramic bulldogs and, naturally, a trio of fireworks.

"Happy birthday to me!" Bernardeschi wrote, preferring to let the cake speak for itself.

The Juventus winger appeared delighted by it all, posing with the cake inside a dining room with an ancient Rome motif.

Here's to thinking that something appearing that delicious didn't stand a similar test of time.
