Teresa Giudice has a worthy challenger as the queen of the Pinterest-worthy birthday cake! The Real Housewives of New Jersey mamas regularly celebrate family members' birthdays with special, picture-perfect confections — and Jennifer Aydin has jumped into the fray with a stunning cake for her newly minted 12-year-old daughter, Gabriella.
The family celebrated in an al fresco party setup, with turquoise tablecloth-topped banquet tables and white chairs — as shown off on Instagram Stories by party guest Teresa. It was a palette keeping with the under-the-sea-theme cake she also showed off: The four-tiered confection began with its largest round tier decorated in seashells, a starfish, seahorse, and a shiny lavender mermaid tail.
Next was a textured blue tier, and a purple layer all done in a quilted look studded with rhinestones bearing a plaque emblazoned,"Happy Birthday Gabriella." A colorful top tier appeared to be covered in mermaid scales — and a bold number "12" topper announced Gabriella's tween status. And what a dream cake indeed for a tweenager!

It's just one of many greatest hits in a long line of fancy RHONJ kids' cakes — often shown off by Teresa: When her daughter Gia turned 18, she got a sparkling cake that was studded with stars; when Audriana turned 9, she blew out the candles on a pink confection that had edible tubes of lipstick on it; and when Teresa's daughter (also) Gabriella celebrated her 14th, she got fancy designer cupcakes.
