Because you can never get enough of this sparkly purple jumpsuit.

You can pretty much put *any* picture of Selena on a cake and it’s guaranteed to look this beautiful.

Such a classic cake style and such a classic picture.

And the bigger the cake, the more Selena you can showcase.

Love how this cake is decorated with her song lyrics.

We’re just waiting to see one of these cakes at a quinceañera.

Wish I had this as my quince cake.

As you may have noticed, a common theme for these Selena cakes is the color purple.

And you can’t forget the white roses on the side!

But if the color purple alone isn’t enough, you can also bedazzle your cake like this person did.

This is so representative of Selena’s sense of style.

You also can’t go wrong with the addition of the white roses.

Where do we get this?!

But if you want to keep it simple, you can always go with a cake that features Selena’s bright smile.

Man Has Bad Bunny Themed Birthday Party To Celebrate Special Day In Quarantine

@Mr_Octopus7 / Twitter

Birthdays are an exciting time no matter how old you might be. You can do and have anything you want, within reason of course. That means you can even choose to be completely alone. Or, like one smart young man, you can decide to have a birthday party dedicated to your favorite artist.

Twitter user @Mr_Octopus7 celebrated his 22nd birthday in style.

The young man turned 22 years old with the help of his family and Bad Bunny. The man, who geotagged Vega Baja Beach, Puerto Rico in his post, is likely giving a fellow Puerto Rican the love and respect he rightfully deserves. The special birthday tribute is more fitting considering the work he has done to fight for the people of Puerto Rico.

Of course, there was a big and wonderful Bad Bunny cake for the special occasion.

We have so many questions about this cake. What was the flavor? What color was it inside? Was it inspired by anything Bad Bunny has done? We need answers. The cake is the most important part of any birthday party and this one was surrounded by Bad Bunny photos. Clearly, this man’s family knows how to throw the perfect quarantine birthday party.

Don’t worry. Entertainment of epic proportions was provided.

Credit: @Mr_Octopus7 / Twitter

Technology is one of the greatest inventions of mankind. Not only are we able to know about this man’s special Bad Bunny birthday party, but he was able to get all of the entertainment in one place. The laptop speaker was bumping with Bad Bunny jams while the family enjoyed the special birthday celebration.

There looks like there was a costume requirement that, luckily, everyone honored.

Credit: @Mr_Octopus7 / Twitter

His mom was wearing some yellow glasses and his brother had to join in on the fun. Those glasses, while not unique, have become part of Bad Bunny’s signature style. The small glass lens is something we have seen the Puerto Rican trap star wear time and time again in different colors. Honestly, every man you know secretly wants a pair of these glasses so if you want to cheer anyone up, you know what to do.

The brothers matching in their Bad Bunny-themed outfit is just too adorable.

Credit: @Mr_Octopus7 / Twitter

This is something your parents will never let you outgrow. No matter how old you and your siblings are, mom will always make you match on special days. It seems like this cuarentena birthday party is no different. It just makes the whole birthday celebration seem more relatable because we have all been wearing the exact same outfit as our younger siblings many times.

People on social media felt the authenticity of the Vega Baja Beach experience.

@Mr_Octopus7 was not shy about admitting how much he loves where he lives. The beach town is 40 minutes east of San Juan on the northern shore of the island. Around 60,000 people call the northern beach city home and one man is really head over heels for it.

“I love this town and its people so much,” @Mr_Octopus7 tweeted. “Truly a blessing.”

And, back to the cake, we aren’t sure of the flavor, but the birthday boy did say it was good. At lease the bunny face was.

“It was good,” @Mr_Octopus7 tweeted. “I ate the little bunny.”

Happy birthday, @Mr_Octopus7! How are you all celebrating your quarantine birthdays? We want to see them. Tag us in all of your quarantine birthday celebrations so we can see how you all are making the best out of our current situation.
