Stacey noticed her birthday cake didn't have traditional candles!

We've tracked down the pretty birthday cake and it cost £11 from Tesco. While the outside is decorated with a silver horn, matching eyes and pink and purple piped icing to make the mane, the inside consisted of a Madeira sponge cake filled with raspberry jam and covered with vanilla frosting.

However, she spotted one unusual part of the celebrations – the candles! "I think Joe may have forgotten birthday candles," she said, pointing out the tea lights surrounding the cake. It's a small price to pay after Joe whisked her away for a birthday weekend!

Although Stacey hasn't revealed where they are staying, she has shared several glimpses inside their break, which started with her other half decorating their high-spec campervan with beautiful pink flowers.

"Off on a birthday adventure for the weekend," Stacey wrote. "Joe decorated the van. I'm pretty sure this is your doing @poppybelleflorals because these look like our summer door flowers we took down the other day," the famous mum added.

The family have been staying in an incredible holiday home that looks like something straight out of The Lord of the Rings! A circular glass door leads into the residence, which is sunken into the ground and surrounded by rolling lush greenery. 

Inside, Stacey's cosy bedroom boasts jaw-dropping views of the surrounding countryside, and sweet wooden interiors also include a brick-walled kitchen and snug living room area.
