Betty Crocker Betty White 90th Birthday Cake

Betty Crocker has created a birthday cake for Betty White's 90th birthday special, which airs Monday, January 16 (8-9:30 p.m. ET) on NBC. Betty Crocker will present Betty White with a Triple Chocolate Celebration Cake. Both Betty Crocker and Betty White are celebrating their ninetieth year.

The cake is being flown by private plane from Betty Crocker's Minneapolis home to Los Angeles for Betty White's birthday. The chocolate cake is layered with chocolate mousse and rich chocolate ganache. The red, orange and magenta cake is decorated with fondant roses, shimmery edible pearls and golden candles. A small replica of Betty's beloved dog Pontiac is hidden among the roses.

Kristen Olson, food editor with Betty Crocker, says, "Betty White is one of the most popular actresses of our time, and Betty Crocker is honored to create this one-of-a-kind birthday cake for her,” said Kristen Olson, food editor with Betty Crocker. “This cake is our gift to Betty White in celebration of her ninety amazing years, and we think this vibrant cake really reflects her personality and the many things we love about her."
