Jacinda Ardern Nails Daughter’s Birthday Cake Proving There’s Nothing She Can’t Do!

Jacinda Ardern Nails Daughter’s Birthday Cake Proving There’s Nothing She Can’t Do!


New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden pulled out all the stops for daughter Neve’s second birthday making her a piano cake straight from the pages of the Australian Women’s Weekly Birthday Cake Book!

Ardern posted a photo of the cake on Instagram with the caption: “Cake making lesson number two – don’t focus on making the cake look in proportion with little to no attention on structural integrity….there is a jar of lentils propping this thing up.”

“Happy Birthday Neve! Thanks for ignoring all of the imperfections in life and just being a joy.”


Ardern’s fiance Clarke Gayford also shared a photo of the cake to Instagram, praising her hard work.

“And just like that we have a 2 year old. Can confirm 100% less swear words went into this year’s cake. Well done mum.”

This isn’t the first time the prime minister has attempted a birthday cake. Last year for Neve’s first birthday Ardern made an adorable bunny-shaped birthday cake from the same recipe book.

“I may be smiling but about an hour earlier I was not enjoying the first birthday cake making experience (like just about every parent I know!),” she wrote on Instagram at the time.

“I recommend cakes that you can legitimately cover in coconut – it hides almost everything.”

Two year old Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford was born at 4.45pm on June 21, 2018 and is the first baby born to a sitting New Zealand Prime Minister and only the second baby in history born to a sitting world leader.
