Peoples Digest Online- Not content with having her friends and family dress up as her to celebrate her 36th, Beyonce also forked out on a whopper of a cake that cost at least $3,500 (£2,700). That’s a pricey sponge.
The Formation singer had a very special treat baked for her celebrations, which she held at the Made In America festival in Philadelphia, requesting a black and gold themed geode cake. A heck of a lot fancier than the Collin The Caterpillar that we’d probably choose.
It was created by Cake Life Bake Shop, and co-owner Lily Fischer said they only had a week’s notice to plan and create the stunning masterpiece.
She told the New York Post’s Page Six: ‘Obviously we were looking at [inspiration] and things like that, but making the cake is a two-day process.
‘Last week, a call came into Philadelphia’s Cake Life Bake Shop requesting some cakes and cookies for New York clientele who were coming down for the Made In America festival over the weekend. The caller asked for various items and then specifically black-and-yellow-coloured items, including a black and yellow geode-themed cake … They escorted the cake and cookies to a private area behind the festival stage.’
They shared a snap of the delicious looking cake on Instagram, and wrote: ‘Happy Birthday, @Beyonce! We hope you enjoyed this custom geode cake at your party last night!! It was an honor to be a part of your big day.’
According to Billboard, it was three tiers of honey and lavender flavoured sponge, with edible sugar crystals and, of course, little biscuit beehives.
And the cake of a queen would not be complete without its own crown – similar to the one she wore for the Grammys earlier this year.
Beyonce’s mother Tina Lawson paid tribute to her daughter on her birthday.
She wrote on Instagram: ’36 years ago God Chose me out of all the women in the world to be your mother! How blessed could i be ? Not because you are a super talented , smart business woman and one of the biggest superstars! Its because you are the kindest most generous , thoughtful , intuitive , loyal , humble , funny , grounded, grateful and loving human being. I am proud to be your mom ..Happy Birthday Baby! I love you with my whole heart (sic)’
