Kelly Ripa celebrated her 48th birthday on Tuesday with her Live With Kelly and Ryan crew.
Despite the super early start the TV host was presented with a huge birthday cake which co-host Ryan Seacrest declared to be ‘the world’s largest peanut butter and jelly sandwich birthday cake.’
The massive slab of cake, shaped like a PB&J sandwich was made by Brooklyn based chef Michael Lechowicz from Charlotte Patisserie.
Birthday girl! Kelly Ripa was surprised with a massive peanut butter and jelly sandwich cake on her 48th birthday on Tuesday
It was made of pound cake with peanut butter and strawberry jelly in the middle and served with two big glasses of milk.
‘I spent the whole year hearing about Kelly having PB&J in her bed,’ Ryan, 43, said of the inspiration behind the sweet treat.
‘Her husband would bring these in, they would eat them, and now, this is the world’s largest. … I don’t know how you and Mark [Consuelos] would have this in bed.’
Kelly joked ‘We would manage,’ and added, ‘This is the greatest thing ever. Thank you so much everybody.’
