There’s nothing quite like a delicious cake, and no one knows this better than celebrities! Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Ripa, for example, know how important a wow-worthy confection is when they’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or other significant achievement.
For example, consider the singer of “Ain’t Your Mama.” In July 2019, she celebrated her 50th birthday on Star Island in Miami with a show-stopping celebration. The massive cake, for starters, was made up of ten tiers that were all beautifully decorated. Lopez’s festive dessert featured black and gold accents on each tier, but not just any metallic hue — the 24-karat gold embellishments on Lopez’s dessert were pricey.
As if that weren’t enough, the Grammy nominee’s lavish, towering pastry was also encrusted with Swarovski crystals and featured an edible flower design as well as several sparklers at the base. Lopez’s cake reportedly cost $10,000 and had to be carried in by five men.
