ROCHESTER, MN (KTTC-DT) -- Wrestling isn't a piece of cake, except this time around.
Gingerbread House Owner John Fish got a call a few weeks back from a guy in New York and at first thought it was a scam.
"Wanted to know if we'd be interested in making a wrestling house in the shape of an arena," says John.
The caller was from World Wrestling Entertainment, seeking out a bakery that could perfect a not-so common Gingerbread wrestling ring.
Maybe he found John's bakery because they already do un-common things, such as baking giant gingerbread men that end up in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Whatever the reason, this project is scaled down; but has to be shipped east, for the real reason behind its creation.
"They plan on using it on their Christmas cards. They want to take a picture of it and they'll put snow and trees around it."
John and his son Mike spent the last couple of weeks working on the elaborate details like licorice ropes and expressions on the gingerbread men's faces.
The project isn't fully edible: there's hot glue and nails, for shipping purposes.
But there will be one thing broken at the end.
"They're going to break the one, the loser, in half and have him laying on the mat," says John. "I couldn't do that."
Now this is a win, in the wrestling world, and the gingerbread world.
The gingerbread wrestling ring was scheduled to be shipped via FedEx Monday afternoon. Tuesday morning, the Gingerbread House told KTTC FedEx could not insure the cake, so John and his wife decided to drive the cake to Connecticut themselves.
