If you were anywhere near Instagram or the Parkway over Labor Day Weekend, you know that Beyoncé and her husband stopped by Made in America to show off her new fanny pack and see Lizzo perform. As any member of the Beyhive knows, her birthday is September 4th — and once again, the queen called upon Fishtown’s Cake Life Bake Shop for backstage birthday sweets.

“It’s like dreams coming true over and over again,” said co-owner Lily Fischer. “We’re still on cloud nine about it all.”

But this year’s order was different than the majestic black-and-gold, crown-topped geode cake their star bakers designed for her back in 2017. In fact, you could walk into Cake Life right now and come out with Bey’s birthday cakes.

This time, Fischer said, the order from Beyoncé’s team came at the last minute, with no time to create and construct such an ornate design, so they sent a few cakes from their menu. The same menu they use for regular people like us.

That’s right: all Bey’s fellow Virgos have to do to cake like the queen is place an order.

Cake Life sent their funfetti cake, frosted in vanilla buttercream and topped with rainbow buttercream dollops and sprinkles, which Bey is holding in the Instagram post above.

The order also included a late-summer, peaches-and-cream offering: vanilla cake with a bourbon syrup soak, bourbon peach compote, and vanilla bean mascarpone whipped cream, with a layer of cream cheese frosting on the outside. Sounds fit for a queen to me. 

In addition to the cakes, Fischer included favorite sweets from the shop like lemon bars and honey shortbread cookies — “which we do each time we make treats for them, a wink and a nod to the Queen Bey,” she said. The bakery also sent along dinosaur-shaped sugar cookies and the rainbow-swirled meringues known as “unicorn poop” for Blue Ivy and the twins, Sir and Rumi.

“I love how she’s gotten one of our most extravagant cakes and one of our simplest cakes,” Fischer said. “Even queens eat funfetti, right?”
