Reese's daughter Ava marked her 21st birthday with champagne and chocolate cake

To mark the special occasion, Ava was presented with a glass of champagne and a rich chocolate cake – how indulgent! Dressed in a white spotty dress, she posed for a photo in front of her cake, which was covered in milk chocolate frosting. We can't help but think her frock was a bold choice with the decadent creation, which was decorated with dark chocolate sprinkles covering the sides and two edible pink roses on top.
