Tom Cruise is said to have paid for his own jet to travel 5,500 miles to pick up 300 Christmas cakes. The actor reportedly intended to present the Mission: Impossible cast to sweet pastries from his favorite Los Angeles bakery.
The cakes were purportedly delivered to the crew in the United Kingdom by the jet. “Tom Cruise wanted to offer the Mission: Impossible crew a treat for Christmas cakes and thought that only cakes from his favorite bakery in Los Angeles would suffice,” a source said.
“He arranged for the business to bake 300 cakes in advance, which he then flew back to the UK on his own plane.” “It is pricey, but Tom is a really giving guy, and he wanted to do something special for everyone who has worked on the movie with him,” the insider stated to The Sun.
Tom is known for sending cakes to a number of his famous friends and crew members every Christmas, according to reports.
According to Yahoo!, Tom asks Doan’s Bakery in Woodland Hills, California, to make a white chocolate coconut Bundt cake for his friends.
During interviews, celebrities have even mentioned the famed dessert. “He brings me a cake every Christmas,” Kirsten Dunst, who co-starred with Tom in Interview with a Vampire, stated in a Graham Norton interview. “At my home, we call it the Cruise cake.
It’s only a piece of coconut cake, but it’s the greatest coconut cake I’ve ever tasted.” During an interview with Access, Henry Cavill said that he got the iconic sweet treat along with a ‘Happy Christmas’ letter. He remarked, “It was the most sumptuous, wonderful, and surprise dessert to get from someone like Tom Cruise.”
Tom Cruise previously addressed the Christmas cake, noting that he avoids sweet meals while preparing for his films. Instead, ‘he delivers [cakes] to everyone… and he waits for calls’ from all of his friends, whom he begs to ‘tell him about it.
