Some Hollywood actors are stars in reel as well as real life. Only a while ago, Keanu Reaves gifted personalized Rolex watches to the entire stunt team of John Wick 4. Now Tom Cruise is being his generous self and making Christmas sweet for the Mission: Impossible 7 crew members. The Christmas gifts were flown across the Atlantic from Tom’s favorite bakery. 300 white chocolate coconut Bundt cake from Doan’s Bakery in Woodland Hills, now famous as the ‘Tom Cruise cake,’ traveled 5,500 miles to make the hardworking crew of the hit franchise happy.
A source told the Sun, “Tom wanted to give the team on Mission: Impossible a treat for Christmas and decided that only cakes from his favorite bakery in LA would do. He organized for the shop to make 300 cakes, and they were then flown back to the UK on his jet. He continued, “It is extravagant, but Tom is an incredibly generous person, and he wanted to do something special for everyone who has worked on the movie with him.” Each cake costs around $50 which means Tom Cruise spent $15000 on the cakes alone. This isn’t Tom’s only big gesture for the cast and crew of the film.
He hired a massive ship, Hurtigruten watercraft, for the staff to avoid delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic. He spent a whopping $670,000 to make this happen. Apparently, gifting these lip-smacking coconut Bundt cakes is a hobby of the Tog Gun star, who has made it a tradition of sorts for the festive season. The Oscar nominee has given nearly all his friends a taste of the delicacy from fellow Hollywood stars, journalists, and executives. That must’ve amounted to more than a thousand cakes, no wonder the cake is now dubbed the Tom Cruise cake.
