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

“I cannot believe my little guy is 2 years old today!” the proud mom wrote in the caption alongside a super sweet photo of Chase smiling from ear to ear next to his enormous cake. “Wow!! The years go by so fast! Chase is our rainbow baby. He has brought so many smiles to this family. His smile melts our hearts and we’re so blessed that God chose us to be his parents. Happy 2nd birthday to my Chasey Poo!” 

With three brightly-colored underwater-themed tiers, the birthday boy’s cake was nearly as tall as he is! The cake read “Happy Birthday Chase” in bold blue letters, and featured a few smiling sharks as well as intricate seaweed and coral icing designs. 

Monique truly went all out with Chase’s birthday decor, and also brightened up their home with a cheerful balloon installation from Luxy Balloons, a DC Metropolitan based stylist. Sea creatures and balloons seem to be a favorite for the Samuels kids, as it appears the company once also created a mermaid-themed installation for one of Milani’s previous birthdays. 

Even without an ocean-life theme, Monique and her family always nail a birthday celebration. She recently celebrated her 37th birthday with a lavish three-tiered pink cake, which was blinged out with gorgeous rhinestones and gems.
