Ariel Winter Shut Down Traditional Birthday Cakes With a Cheesy Surprise

Ariel Winter rang in her momentous 21st birthday in the best way possible: with her friends, boyfriend Levi Meaden, and her dog, all serenading her with the “Happy Birthday” song as they presented her with a Dominos pizza cake.

Ariel posted a video of said moment to her Instagram, where you can see how jazzed she was about the celebration, even excitedly dropping almost into the splits as her friends sang. The actress wore high-waisted black pants and a black crop top with mesh paneling to ring in her 21st year, and here’s hoping her wish comes true — she blew that cake’s candle right out.

Before you pull up the Dominos website to order a pizza cake of your own, we have to be clear: The aforementioned “cake” was really just a Dominos pizza with a candle in it, like a birthday cake. You can order desserts with your Dominos pizza, including their Chocolate Crunch Lava Cake and Cinnamon Bread Twists, but if you want to turn a pizza into a cake, we applaud you.

Ariel, who has been in the public eye since she was a child, thanks to her role in Modern Family, had a big 20th year: She spoke up about feminism, encouraged her followers to vote in midterm elections, made a major splash on Halloween with Levi, and did a little clapping back at paparazzi and online trolls, too.

What’s in store for Ariel as a 21-year-old? Modern Family could be wrapping up this year, which means she could embark on a new chapter of her career. Whatever Ariel chooses to do next, we know she’s going to kill it. Happy birthday, Ariel! Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re craving Dominos pizza right about now.
