Hollywood megastars probably get a whole lot of cool birthday presents. But they’ve also probably got all the sports cars and diamond watches they could ever want. Not to mention extravagant birthday cakes. But for Billy Crystal’s birthday on Monday, the pastry chefs at Wolfgang Puck’s Downtown L.A. restaurant WP24 were up to exactly that kind of challenge. They tell us they surprised Crystal with this New York Yankees–inspired cake while the comedian celebrated his 63rd birthday over dinner. Pretty cool! We guess you could say this time he got to cut the Yankees, as opposed to his 60th birthday, when the Yankees cut him. (We couldn’t help ourselves.)
