J.Lo was gifted two different stripper-themed cakes over the weekend to celebrate the release of her new movie.

Jennifer Lopez has a lot of celebrating to do this week after Hustlers earned $33.2 million at the U.S. box office, making for the singer-actress’ best live-action opening of her career, according to early returns. David Grutman’s Papi Steak restaurant in Miami helped out with the festivities by sending her a grand stripper cake Saturday to commemorate the movie’s opening weekend.

The Hustlers-inspired cake had J.Lo all over it: Edible movie posters and limited-edition $100 bills with her face covered the glitz-and-glam confection, which was also dressed up in stripper silhouettes on its five tiers.

But she got more cake than that. Her fiancé and former baseball star Alex Rodriguez doubled her dessert for the weekend, as this treat was replete with a stripper silhouette working the pole atop the cake, which was also covered in edible $100 bills (the Benjamin Franklin ones, this time).

“Baby, congratulations on Hustlers. So proud of you!” he wrote in the note Lopez shared on her Instagram story on Friday. “Love Hustling through life with you. love, Macho.” Find a video of the cake here.
