What kind of birthday cake would you get if you were Nuggets superstar Carmelo Anthony? A badass one. Obviously.
Today, Melo's fiance, LaLa Vazquez, posted photos of his 26th birthday bash (his birthday is May 29) on her website, IamLaLa.com. If the cake is any indication, the party, which was Vegas-themed and attended by hip hop artists Ciara and Tyrese, was decadent. Unfortunately, it took place in L.A., not Denver. Boo.
But it would have been the Mile High City that would have suffered had Melo melted his precious, point-scoring face off while trying to blow out the
candles blowtorches atop his cake. Apparently, when you're NBA royalty, your birthday cake is literally en fuego.
