Melissa Gorga Celebrated Her 42nd Birthday With an Amazing Dessert Ferris Wheel

The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member hit up a Bravolebrity-loved hotspot for a sweet birthday treat.

On March 21, Melissa Gorga celebrated her 42nd birthday with an elegant family dinner and a pretty pink cake in New York City. But, when The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member found herself in Las Vegas a week later, she decided to keep the party going — and she kept the sweets coming, too. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

In her Instagram Stories from March 27, the Envy Boutique owner shared a peek at the birthday desserts that topped her table at Beauty & Essex. Filled with whimsy, the sugary treats had a high-end carnival vibe. 

In Melissa's posts, she noted that the restaurant was "sending [her] off to New Jersey right." And indeed, it looks like her vacation wrapped up in an incredibly sweet way.

A candlelit plate bore a frosted message: "Happy belated birthday Melissa." A platter of assorted desserts included cinnamon-sugar donuts, cotton candy, and cake pops with rainbow sprinkles. And if that's not sweet enough, there was also a tabletop Ferris wheel that held desserts in little golden buckets. (Fun fact: The $38 menu item is called the "Beauty's Wonder Wheel.")

Beauty & Essex is a popular birthday spot for Bravolebrities. Brielle Biermann had a tower of shots there on her 22nd birthday, and soon-to-be mama Scheana Shay rang in her 33rd there with a spread of mini tacos, sushi, and cocktails.
