Though she seems timeless, superstar Beyoncé does celebrate birthdays, and sometimes she celebrates them in Philly. She was in town all weekend for husband Jay-Z’s Made in America music fest on the Ben Franklin Parkway and spotted dancing on the side of the stage while Lizzo performed. Also spotted: Queen Bey celebrating her September 4 birthday a few days early with birthday cakes from Fishtown’s Cake Life Bake Shop.

According to the bakery, Beyoncé’s team ordered a funfetti cake — vanilla cake layered with vanilla buttercream and topped with colorful buttercream dollops and confetti sprinkles — and a peaches and cream cake, which is a vanilla cake with a bourbon soak layered with caramelized peaches and mascarpone whipped cream, covered in cream cheese frosting, and topped with dehydrated peach slices.

If you’re one of the 132 million people who follow the singer on Instagram, you may have seen the funfetti cake posted Tuesday:

This is the second time Cake Life was tapped to make Beyoncé’s birthday cake. Two years ago, the bakery created this three-tiered black and gold geode cake:
