Secrets to Creating Jennifer Lopez's 'Crazy' Birthday Cake
Feast your eyes on this!
Jennifer Lopez celebrated her 45th birthday with quite a cake of herself posing with a lion! Check out the outfit. It's just like the one in one of Lopez's music videos.
Samantha Brooks, owner of Sami Cakes Boutique in Syosset, New York created what's being called the "wildest" cake ever.
"I didn't want it to be a wow factor, I wanted it to be a wild factor," said Brooks.

The cake weighed more than 100 pounds, and constructing it was quite a feat of engineering. It's four feet long and two-and-a-half feet high. Brooks used steel pipes and foam for the cake's foundation.
Jenny from the Block specifically requested a lemon cake with coconut mousse filling. But she never expected this concoction!
INSIDE EDITION asked Brooks, "What's with the lion?"
"They wanted the lion because she is a Leo. It's such a strong creature in the wild," replied Brooks.
Brooks says she considers her cake her greatest creation. Unfortunately, the restaurant where the bash was held didn't have a large enough fridge to store it.
The cake was depicted melting in an Instagram photo posted online by one of the guests.
"Unfortunately it was a horrible depiction of my work. It literally sat in a hot production kitchen for five hours," said Brooks.
But the cake in all its original glory was a true work of art and good enough to eat.
