TomKat blow $100k on Suri Cruise's birthday



Tbdsuricruise042408 Think you're spoiling your kid? Think about poor little Suri Cruise, whose folks blew $100,000 on her second birthday party on April 18. That's five zeroes, mind you.

The New York Daily News and In Touch Weekly say Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes invited 24 people to an afternoon bash. Everyone got an individual designer cake in the shape of a hat bearing that person's name, with a butterfly and a daisy on the brim.

They also ordered $230 worth of cupcakes in flavors like lemon coconut and chai latte, in case that wasn't enough sugar. But the main event was Suri's four-tiered, polka-dotted cake, which was covered in yellow and white sugar butterflies. (Suri is into the butterflies, apparently.)

"They're very specific about what they like," said baker Jane Lockhart, owner of Sweet Lady Jane Bakery in West Hollywood, which made the cakes. "They wanted (Suri's) cake to look simple and childlike so they designed it themselves, which was kind of interesting. They brought in photos they had seen of butterflies and other cakes."

After eating an additional $45,000 in food from Wolfgang Puck and enjoying $17,000 worth of fresh flowers, the day gave way to an evening affair for TomKat's close friends, including David and Victoria Beckham, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Eva Longoria Parker and Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy.

We're sure they all sat around the Cruise compound and discussed rising gas prices, health insurance premiums and global food costs as they were gorging on birthday cake and avarice. Why wouldn't they?
