Blake Lively Bakes Beyoncé Knowles A Queen Bee Birthday Cake

Blake Lively and Beyoncé Knowles seem to have a friendship any girl would be envious of, especially Gwyneth Paltrow.

The former Gossip Girl star gave a shout out to her favourite “B” on Thursday – and no we’re not talking about the Upper East Side’s Blair Waldorf – when she recognised Beyoncé’s birthday. Actress Blake shared just how much she loves Jay Z’s wife by baking her a bee-themed birthday cake, as Bey turned 33.

“Happy Bday to the Queen B! Enjoy a Meyer Lemon Honey Cake made by one of your worker Bs. Xo@blakelively @Preserve_Us,” she posted on Twitter.

Then in a short video made of picture stitched together into a slideshow Blake showed just how she made the sweet treat in the shape of a hive. It’s no surprise Blake has so much love for the singer. Ryan Reynold’s wife was publicly wished a happy 27th birthday on Beyoncé’s website where she published a black and white card with her face on it.

Blake’s show of celebrity affection was displayed on her website Preserve, a lifestyle publication which is thought to be a rival to Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop newsletter. Blake seems to have taken to bees ever since she launched the website and in a post about her own birthday activity recently she shared how she was attacked by the black and yellow insects.

“I felt an electric shock of energy — was it excitement that I was about to turn another year older?,” Blake wrote. “As it happens, I wasn’t being greeted by the onset of spontaneous aging, but rather a full-fledged bee day. Attacked. All over.

“Everywhere. I was shaken. I was swollen….What better way to recover than throw a fake 27th birthday party for myself?”
