In case you hadn't noticed, Gary Shirley is a professional baker. Gone are the days when he'd till the soil and plant watermelon seeds all up in Mother Nature, now Gary is all about pie. And cheesecake. And something horrifying called "puppy chow."

Turns out Gary is a semi-professional chef nowadays, and local yokels are clamoring out of the backwoods to get their mitts on his homemade delicacies. Gary's been making a pretty penny selling his baked goods, but he just took things to a whole new level with an especially delicious blueberry cheesecake.

So, how much did Gary's cheesey creation sell for? A whopping $60! Or, as one fan pointed out, more than his engagement ring to Amber Portwood. We'll give you a moment to collect yourself and slow clap at your computer screen.

While we're slightly shocked that people are willing to pay $60 for cheesecake fondled by Gary (nevermind, we'd pay a MILLION dollars), it's great that this dude is making money for his family by doing what he loves! With any luck, he'll save up enough money to open his own cheesecake factory, not to be confused with the actual Cheesecake Factory.

Sigh, Gary's new hobby brings a whole new meaning to "waking and baking."
