Emily Simpson rang in her birthday with a cake unlike any other. The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member celebrated her special day with the sweetest (and funniest) dessert of all, inspired by one of her most iconic RHOC moments yet.

During the January 12 episode of the show, Emily, Heather Dubrow, and Dr. Jen Armstrong indulged in a lavish "self-care Friday" which included a trip to a sauna. As Heather and Jen enjoyed the heat of the 155-degree-room, Emily was on a different page and felt like she might "pass out." To fix that, she reached into her purse and pulled out the cure — a turkey sandwich. Needed? Yes. Iconic? Also, yes.

Following her sauna snack, Schlotzsky's deli decided to surprise Emily with a creative treat for her birthday. In a January Instagram Story, the RHOC mom showed off the drool-worthy cake the sandwich shop had sent her. "Happy birthday, Emily! We know you love turkey sandwiches as much as we do, so to celebrate your big day here's a cake designed after our Turkey Original," a card read.

As Emily peeked at the delicious cake, she remarked, "Look at that. Isn't that cool? It's actually a cake that looks like a turkey sandwich." The decadent dessert did in fact resemble a large sandwich as it featured layers of frosting fashioned after onions, lettuce, tomatoes, and of course, turkey slices.

Naturally, the RHOC mom also feted her special day with drinks in hand. In an Instagram Story from the same day, Emily rang in another year around the sun at a boozy brunch. "How many mimosas did I have at lunch?" she teased.

As for the icing on the cake? Emily enjoyed a slice of dessert at lunch, this time with (unfortunately) no resemblance to a sandwich.

In a January 18 Instagram, the birthday girl shared a sentimental message about what getting older meant to her. "With each passing year, I find myself less impressed by material things and more invested in what truly matters in this life…" she wrote. "Here’s to living life to the fullest and always say yes to cake"
