How do you fete a team that brought the entire city of Miami to its feet in a celebration of team spirit and hometown pride? Well, cake is always nice, but let's face it -- you're not going to the supermarket on the way home to pick something up for the Miami Heat.
You're going to want something a little flashier...like, maybe, a cake with real gold leaf and 36,000 Swarovski crystals.
Look at that basketball!

Miami's cake maker to the stars, Divine Delicacies, started designing the beauty about two weeks ago -- well before the Heat won the championships -- just in case.

Hot Hot Hoops reports the five-tier cake features an edible trophy covered with 24-carat edible gold paint. There's a championship hat made of sugar. There's the Heat logo, complete with flames.
But, the cake's star feature is the basketball, hand decorated with 36,000 Swarovski crystals.
