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

Bethenny Frankel's 50th birthday is on November 4. And to celebrate a bit early, she hosted a "mini celebration" with a nautical treat. In her Instagram Stories, The Real Housewives of New York City alum shared a look at her birthday cake, which looked like it could spout at any time.

As her friend Jill and her "peanut," Bryn, sang her the birthday song, Bethenny filmed the ice cream cake they held up. Decked with glowing number candles, the dessert was a classic Fudgie the Whale from Carvel. Invented in the 1970s, the cutesy dessert has vanilla ice cream swathed in fudge and nuts — and, yes, it's shaped like its namesake sea creature. 

"OK, you need to make a serious wish here," Bethenny's friend said, before putting the cake down. If Bethenny's wish was for something sweet, it looks like she already had that covered.
