Jennifer Lopez's sister Lynda has had an exciting week following the launch of her debut book, AOC. And to mark the special occasion, the mother-of-one was surprised with a decadent cake. This was no ordinary cake either, as it was crafted to look exactly like the AOC book cover, complete with gold edges and an edible pen. Lynda shared a video of the masterpiece on Instagram, alongside the caption: "This is why @jewelzlopezenturadio is the best best best friend ever… This cake is amazing! Love you (and thank you @palermos.bakery)."

Fans were quick to comment on the cake, with one writing: "Omg this cake is amazing. Congratulations Lyn!" While another wrote: "Omg, this is a cake?!" A third added: "This is awesome all around."
