Betty White Off Their Rockers
January 24, 2012 by staff
Betty White Off Their Rockers, America’s Golden Girl Betty White celebrated her 90th birthday with a big cake and a few four legged friends.
The Los Angeles Zoo Association toasted the funny lady and animal advocate with a big bash on Saturday, complete with a life-sized cake created by the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Hollywood.
The impressive five foot tall confection was described as a chocolate blackout cake.
Made from 90 lbs. of sugar, 50 lbs. of flour, 50 lbs. of butter, 470 eggs and 100 cups of coffee, it was decorated with edible versions of White’s favorite zoo animals including a koala, a parrot and a giraffe.
White talked about her love for the L.A. Zoo to local reporters.
She said to KABC television: ‘I don’t have to tell you how I feel about this magnificent zoo.
‘It’s my other home, I love it with all my heart and we watched it grow up a long, long time,’ the television star said.
White also used the zoo-tastic party to encourage her fans to support the facility.
According to the zoo’s website, it gave out pieces of Betty’s cake to 900 visitors.
The L.A. Zoo says Betty has been a supporter for nearly five decades and in 2006 the City of Los Angeles named her an ‘Ambassador to the Animals.’
The zoo celebration was just one in a series of gatherings marking Betty’s big day.
Last week NBC honoured the Hot in Cleveland star with her very own TV special, which also featured Amy Poehler and Mary Tyler Moore.
Even President Barack Obama sent in a taped birthday greeting.
He joked: ‘I can’t believe you’re 90 years old. Will you please produce a copy of your long-form birth certificate?’
The presidential message was a send-up to the ‘birthers’ who argue Mr Obama is not a natural born US citizen and not the lawful commander-in-chief.
As for Betty, there’s no disputing she is more popular than other Hollywood stars half her age.
In addition to her award-winning TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland, Betty appears in a new candid camera show called Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, which airs on NBC.
The feisty comedian has won a total of seven Emmy Awards and starred on such hit series as Golden Girls, The Love Boat and Mary Tyler Moore.
