And we thought this Kardashian cake was large. When Jennifer Lopez turned 50 earlier this week, the pop icon celebrated with a bash that was about as low-key as her Las Vegas show. In other words, the blowout took place at Gloria Estefan's Miami mansion, the birthday girl wore a dangerously sexy golden gown, and she got a Porsche as just one of her gifts. So, you can only imagine what a cake would look like at a party like this.
Actually, you don't have to imagine it. Thanks to Instagram, we've been busily ogling the massive, 10-tiered confection that J.Lo blew out the candles on. (By the way, we discovered it had that many tiers after a rather exhaustive stint of counting them — that cake was endless!)
The gloriously over-the-top confection, according to TMZ, combined vanilla-rum cake with dulce de leche filling. It was decked in 24-karat edible gold and had Swarovski crystals spelling out the number 50. So, how much does a cake like that set you back? Oh, about $10,000, if the rumors are true.
But this looks worth it, right?
The bakery behind the work of sugary art, Divine Delicacies, shared this BTS scoop on its Instagram feed: "This cake was so big that didn’t fit inside or outside of the house due to how heavy and TALL it was! Me and my mom build it moments before coming out outside Our Delivery truck in a table ! For then right after to be carried out by 5 guys. It was such an adrenaline to guide them and made sure it made it in one piece to Jennifer in the dance floor, And being there and witnessing her eyes light up when she saw the CAKE was EVERYTHING and more!"
