The Real Housewives' Most Over-the-Top Birthday Cakes and Desserts Ever

Melissa Gorga has a well-documented friendship with Buddy Valastro — and having the "Cake Boss" on speed dial comes in handy when you're celebrating a family occasion! And with Joe Gorga feting the new release of his tome, The Gorga Guide to Success: Business, Marriage, and Life Lessons from a Real Estate Mogul, the Gorgas knew just who to hit up for a cake befitting its launch party. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Melissa took to Instagram to share a photo of the truly massive cake at the party. The large red cake mimics the exact look of the book itself, with its bold red cover and Joe's mug on the front. The pic shows Melissa and Joe flanking the confection, and The Real Housewives of New Jersey pal captioned it with a note of her gratitude: "Thank you @buddyvalastro @carlosbakery for this gorgeous book cake it was so delicious!!!"

Behold the cake in all its glory:
