The holiday season is officially here, and with it, so is the start of many fun food-related traditions. And for superstar Tom Cruise, the month of December means it’s time to kick off his annual cake-gifting frenzy.

In case you haven’t heard, every December, the famed actor sends his friends and loved ones a white chocolate coconut bundt cake from family-owned Doan’s Bakery in Woodland Hills, California. The famous bundt cake consists of chunks of white chocolate topped with cream cheese frosting and shredded coconut. Sound like an enviously delicious dessert that you’d want to have at your holiday party? Don’t worry, I feel the same. And apparently, anyone not on the Top Gun: Maverick star’s list feels that way, too.

Rosie O’Donnell, however, is not one of those left off of Cruise’s “nice” list because the American Gigolo actress has already received hers. “My Tommy sent me a coconut cake!! I love that guy,” the TV personality posted on Instagram along with a photo of the delicious-looking cake. The cake came with a note reading “Warmest wishes to you this holiday season.” 

O’Donnell isn’t the only lucky recipient of this annual treat. Cruise has allegedly sent this very cake as a holiday gift for the last decade to celebrity friends including Angela Bassett, Kirsten Dunst, Jimmy Fallon, and more. He has even gone as far as to ship them on a private jet to friends outside the country, too. Now that’s dedication!

Not lucky enough to be friends with Tom Cruise? You can try the cake for yourself by ordering it on Goldbelly. Or, if you’re feeling creative, try whipping up your very own bundt cake at home. We’ll leave it up to you whether you want to share it with your friends or not.
