Kathie Lee celebrated her birthday on Thursday, and the folks at "Today" marked the occasion in style.

Not with wine, beer or cocktails, but with one beast of a cake. The bakers at Le Cordon Bleu made a three feet-tall, 55 lb. birthday cake for Gifford. The cake was decorated with personal touches, like the "Today" logo, NBC peacocks, art from her musical "Scandalous" and her three dogs.

There was just one thing missing, she said. "Where's my Hoda woman?" she asked of the replicas.
