After leaving the restaurant, Ross and Moragne-el were shot at multiple times, causing Ross to lose control of his Rolls while attempting to flee.



But before the gunshots and the car crash -- there was cake. Two big, blinged-out birthday cake.

The cakes were created by Miami-based Divine Delicacies, which has built a reputation as the cake company to the stars. The bakery has also made cakes for Kim Kardashian, the Miami Heat, and Dwyane Wade, to name a few.

This three-tiered rolled fondant cake features a rather elegant and refined style, topped with a Swarovski crystal MMC (Mayback Music Group) logo. The inside of the cake is a luscious red velvet with layers of cream cheese filling. This cake was presented to Ross at his party at LIV.

A 1959 red Chevy Impala is actually an edible vanilla rum creation. This special cake was presented to Ross on Saturday evening at an intimate dinner for family and friends.
