Chrissy Teigen has been sent her a cake in honour of her breast implants, which she had removed last week after 14 years.

On Tuesday, the cookbook author shared a photo of the cake on her Instagram stories.

The dessert featured a grey tombstone with “RIP 2006-2020” written on it alongside two large breasts covered by a black bra made from icing. The date range on the tombstone in reference to the period of time that the model sported her implants.

The cake appears to have been a gift from Teigen’s two friends, talent agents Meghan Mackenzie and Luke Dillon, who she tagged in the post.

Last week, Teigen announced the medical procedure was a success by sharing a photo of a hilarious get well soon card from her four-year-old daughter, Luna.

“Surgery went perfectly!” Teigen wrote in the caption. “So so so so so sore but waking up to this made it go away for half a minute at least.”

The handwritten card showed one side that read “BYE BOOBIES” and also featured a red scribble and two heart shaped stickers, while the reverse side read: “Have fun pulling your boobies out. Love Luna.”

In May, the mother-of-two revealed that she was planning on having her breast implants removed after sharing a video of her having an at-home coronavirus test.

“A lot of people are understandably curious (and nosey!) so I’ll just say it here: I’m getting my boobs out. They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it. I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort!” she wrote alongside a black-and-white topless photo of herself.

“No biggie! So don’t worry about me! All good. I’ll still have boobs, they’ll just be pure fat. Which is all a tit is in the first place. A dumb, miraculous bag of fat.”

Teigen made no secret of the fact that she wanted the surgery. Earlier this year, the presenter admitted that her feelings had changed towards her implants since having children.

“I did my boobs when I was about 20 years old. It was more for a swimsuit thing. I thought, if I’m going to be posing, laid on my back, I want them to be perky! But then you have babies and they fill up with milk and deflate and now I am screwed,” she told Glamour magazine.

“I want them out now. I think you’re supposed to replace [implants] every ten years. But when you have kids you think about [the risks] of surgery and I think, ‘This is not the way I want to die, in boob surgery’.”
