Jamie Oliver turned 42 on Saturday and it looks like he celebrated in style if his amazing cake is anything to go by. The birthday boy posted a picture of the impressive confection on his Instagram stories and we have to say, we’ve got major cake-envy. The large square cake was iced with edible photographs of Jamie and his family in a chequered pattern. It was definitely a unique gift for the popular TV-chef, who is more used to creating dishes for others than being cooked for himself.

The creators of the delicious-looking desert are Billington Sugar, who posted a video clip of Jamie’s cake on their Instagram page. The cake is a yummy chocolate truffle flavour which the star no doubt enjoyed tucking into. Beside the clip, the company wrote: “We want to say a massive #happybirthday to @jamieoliver@jamiemagazine! We hope you enjoy our Chocolate Truffle Torte Cake, made with our #unrefined #lightmuscovado sugar and @nielsenmasseyuk #vanilla by our good friend @julietsear.”

On Saturday, Jamie’s wife Jools also took to her Instagram page to wish her husband a happy birthday by posting a throwback photo of the chef in his younger years. The picture showed Jamie in his early days as a chef. In the snap, Jamie is seen leaning against a wall with the writing ‘Naked Chef’ on and an arrow pointing to himself. The star looks cool in a hoodie and denim jacket with his trademark floppy hair. Beside the photo, Jools wrote: “Happy birthday gorgeous dude,” with a heart emoji. Jamie first hit our screens as The Naked Chef back in 1999 with his first cookbook of the same name quickly becoming a bestseller.

Fans of the famous family were quick to comment on the nostalgic pic, with one commenting: “I remember this young whippersnapper! Happy Birthday Jamie! Keep doing what you are doing. It's all good!” Another fan wrote: “What a fantastic photo. I remember watching the Naked Chef in the noughties when you looked like this. Happy birthday young man, and yes a very cool dude.” A third joked: “Whoa.... little while ago? Happy birthday @jamieoliver keep on doing what you do best.” There was more praise for the TV chef as another fan posted: “Happy Birthday! Thanks for everything you do with children, schools and healthy eating. Thank you for thinking of our children's future. Good on you.”
