There’s nothing like a good cake, and no one knows that better than celebrities! Whether they’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary or some other big achievement, stars, including Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Ripa understand the importance of a wow-worthy treat.
Take the “Ain’t Your Mama” singer, for example. When she celebrated her 50th birthday at Star Island in Miami in July 2019, her birthday treat was quite the party. For starters, the massive cake consisted of 10 elegantly decorated layers. Each layer had black and gold accents, but we’re not talking about any metallic shades — Lopez’s festive dessert sported some expensive 24-karat gold embellishments.
As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the Grammy nominee’s lavish, towering bun was dazzled with Swarovski crystals and featured an edible flower design, as well as a few sparklers at the base. Lopez’s cake took five men to bring in and reportedly cost a cool $10,000.
Although Ripa was surprised with the cake during the October 2018 episode Live with Kelly and Ryan it wasn’t quite as extravagant, the large pastry, which was designed to look like a giant peanut butter and jelly sandwich, was arguably just as impressive. The treat, which Ripa received on her 48th birthday, was an unexpected gift from her co-host, Ryan Seacrest. It was so big that it broke records.
“I spent a whole year listening to Kelly have a PB&J in bed,” Seacrest told the audience at the time, explaining why he chose such an interesting treat. “Her husband [Mark Consuelos] they would bring them, they would eat them and now this is the biggest in the world.”
According to the television personality, the “bread” of this larger-than-life creation was made from pound cake, while there was a generous helping of peanut butter and jelly in the middle. The treat was created by Brooklyn-based pastry chef Michael Lechowicz, who owns and operates Charlotte Patisserie, a bakery that specializes in creating themed and unique desserts.
And if you think the stars are just throwing out fancy candy when they mark another trip around the sun, think again! Amy Schumer she got a LOL-worthy cake when she celebrated her birthday in January 2019. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan commissioned a stunning lemon elderflower creation when they tied the knot in May 2018.
