How does one mega-star wish another mega-star a happy birthday? By baking a cake and posting it on Instagram!

To celebrate her buddy Beyoncé turning 33 on September 4, Blake Lively created a dessert that looked like an edible work of art and displayed it online.

In a short Instagram video from her Preserve lifestyle account, Lively wrote, “In honor of the Queen of all Bs…I had to make this Meyer Lemon Honey cake. Happy Birthday Beyoncé!!! Xxo Blake.” She also Tweeted a shoutout to the singer, calling herself “one of your worker Bs.” (To give Lively some birthday love the week before, Beyoncé nixed the flour-and-sugar route and instead created a custom black-and-white “card” signed “With love, B” on her website, beyonce.com.)

While we can’t all have a slice — that reach-through-the-screen technology hasn’t been invented yet — the cake video clearly shows the glistening honey tiers, edible flowers and leaves, even a mini bee made with a date. Bonus: We get a clear shot of Lively’s ginormous pink-and-white engagement ring.


Lively has a thing for bees: On her own birthday on August 25, she was stung by the flying stingers during a photoshoot for the site. But even stings all over her body couldn’t stop the enthusiastic baker from making her own playful birthday cake (vanilla layers with over-the-top décor like sparkling tassels and candles that smell like—what else?—birthday cake).

We’d like to think Lively had one more birthday treat for the singer: Having her husband, Ryan Reynolds, personally deliver the cake to Beyoncé’s front door!

“How does one A-lister wish another A-lister a happy birthday?”

I hate to nitpick, but can Blake Lively really be considered an A-lister?

Erica on

Slow news day…

Layla on

Since when is Blake Lively A-list? She had one teen show where she was arguably upstaged by her costar. Seems like a nice enough girl, but really.

blake is just trying to promote her new website “preserve”. I hope she succeeds and puts martha stuart on the back-burner. let someone else shine Martha! having a younger perspective on things is like a breath of fresh air.

Okay, I love the “Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake” sign in the background!

Sorry but that cake looks kind of weird.

Melissa on

I don’t know about you guys but I was oohing at her wedding ring too! Wow, that’s gorgeous🙂

appetitedeluxe on

She really baked and designed that?

DaisyMoon on

Very simple cake Anonymous….

Pour batter into the Nordic Ware Bee Hive Pan…it does all the work for you…you end up with 2 halves of the hive that you connect with frosting.
Even the 3 bee shapes come out too.

Lynn on

Considering that lately she’s pretty much become known for her husband and her hair, she might want to consider doing something about those roots.

Moe on

What cake? Did you see that ring??? OMG!

Dan on

No offense to Blake, but she’s far from being an A-list celeb. Brad Pitt, Angelina, Leo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts, George Clooney, Matt Damon, etc, etc, etc, those are A-list actors. We know who they are, don’t try to fool us ’cause we know better.

Yum yum I would love a bite or too and a piece of the cake too

Sorry to disappoint the haters, but Blake Lively is tough to dislike. I never saw “Gossip Girl” but apparently it did well for a few people. I fell in love with her in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. She showed how real she was in that movie. And a very natural actress. She was also in several more movies. Don’t be so quick to judge. For those who don’t think she was in anything else, check it out. And the Bonus is her spouse Ryan Reynolds! Lucky, talented lady. She doesn’t appear to be a wannabe anything. Good luck to her and her husband Ryan Reynolds.

Lol wanna ‘bee’ Gwyneth Paltrow. :pun intended: I’m a nerd

Twiggy on

Blake Lively is not an A-lister.

Is it me, or is People the only place I ever see this chick? A-lister my foot.
