Hoda Kotb Bakes a Birthday Cake For Her Boyfriend

Hoda Kotb Baked a Delightfully Average Birthday Cake For Her Boyfriend, and Yes, We Definitely Want a Piece

Hoda Kotb, the coanchor of TODAY and a children's book author, showed her boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, just how much she loved him with a homemade birthday cake baked straight from the heart — no professional chef or Pinterest-level perfection necessary. She posted a sweet selfie of herself, daughter Hayley Joy, and 60-year-old Joel holding the cake — which was iced with the phrase, "Happy B-Day Joel" — on Instagram on March 25. And this isn't Hoda's first birthday baking moment: she made a similarly relatable dessert for Hayley Joy's first birthday back in February with the exact same blue icing. When can we get a piece?
