Yao Ming makes special appearance at wedding, sorta

Rocket fans sure do love Yao Ming.

How much so? So much that bride Jacqui Vivanco and groom Mike Hertlein commissioned a pint-sized version of the former center to share on their special day.

The cake was made by famed bakery Charm City Cakes chronicled on the Food Network’s hit program Ace of Cakes.  

With Yao standing at 7′ 6″ in real life, thank goodness the cake wasn’t life-size!



Unfortunately, they had to cut the cake.


This isn’t the first time the couple has made a Houston legend edible. Hertlein also tweeted a photo from his 30th-birthday cake starring former Astros’ catcher Tony Eusebio.
