There are definitely perks to being a popular actress. Top stylists want to dress you, companies want you to promote their products, publishers want to make your life story into a book.
And when you’re also a mom who’s looking for the perfect birthday cake for her child, you might also get a little help from a famous bakery.
Alyson Hannigan‘s daughter Satyana turned 3 yesterday, and she wanted to mark the occasion with a cake topped with a rainbow. Apparently, it’s not so easy to get, even for a celebrity.
“You would not believe how difficult it has been to order a birthday cake with a rainbow on it!” she tweeted. “I mean, it’s LA for crying out loud!!!”
She saw a picture of the perfect cake – a spring-themed confection with a gum-paste rainbow, flowers and rabbits – but the bakeries she visited couldn’t make a similar cake to order. The closest they could promise was an airbrushed photo.
But just when it looked like Aly would have to settle for picking up a sheet cake at Costco, a lifesaving tweet came through.
Charm City Cakes – the Duff Goldman bakery made famous in Ace of Cakes – tweeted the American Reunion star to say they’re “big fans” and encouraged her to check out the website of their new L.A. branch.
Well, who wouldn’t jump at an offer like that?
And although the popular pastisserie normally requires a long lead time, they proved they can rise to the occasion when they have an order from a VIP client.
Look at the beautiful result!
The cake, complete with rainbow topper, was ready in time for the big day – which, by the way, Satyana happens to share with her mom.
Aly tweeted the photo yesterday, along with her gratitude: “Thank you to @Charm_CityCakes for making the cutest and yummiest cake for my little girl. :)”
But her biggest love was for the birthday girl: “And a VERY special Happy Birthday to my 3 year old daughter!!! You are the greatest gift everyday!!!”
Betcha we know now who’s going to make her baby shower cake!
