The talented and beautiful Blake Lively turned 31 this weekend and chose to celebrate her very own special day by devouring twelve cupcakes.
Now, this is a woman who knows how to celebrate her birthday in style! Turning thirty might call for a big celebration; a crazy party or perhaps a trip, but thirty one doesn't quite have the same ring to it. Celebrating with cake is a bit "been there, done that," but having cupcakes is always a good idea (especially when there's twelve of them).
The gorgeous actress, who to some will forever be Serena Van Der Woodsen, took to her Instagram story to share a photo of a box of twelve mouth-watering cupcakes spelling out 'Happy Bday Blake!'. Fast forward to her next shared story and there was a less cute, but oh so relatable photo, of said box of cupcakes, just that this time around they were all completely demolished. It has not been revealed whether or not she had any help from hubby Ryan Reynolds eating them, but if there's ever a day when you actually should eat twelve cupcakes yourself, it's on your birthday.
As shown in her Instagram posts, the delicious looking cupcakes come from celeb hotspot Sprinkles Cupcakes, which is considered to be one of the first true cupcake bakeries. The bakery began in Beverly Hills, California, but today their stores and cupcake ATM's are available in several locations in the U.S.
Blake Lively has previously said cupcakes are her biggest weakness, and honestly, who could blame her? She does also have a past with Sprinkles Cupcakes in particular, and not just in an eating capacity. In 2011 the actress collaborated with the famous bakery and created her own S'mores cupcake for charity. As if we didn't already love her enough.
It is refreshing to see a successful young celebrity as Blake Lively use her platform and social media to show that she is just like any other woman. Cupcake cravings, celebrating her birthday in a super casual, yet delicious, way, and indulging in a sweet treat on a special day.
Happy birthday Blake Lively!
