Actress Naomi Watts marked her 48th birthday on Wednesday and although the spirit of celebration filtered through her Instagram account, there was concern among followers that Watts wasn’t making the most of her big day—that is until she shared a very festive post.

Rest assured, the King Kong actress found a moment in her hectic schedule to let loose, and she did it with help from the dessert industry’s greatest hybrid: cake pops.

After posting a vintage throwback mid-day Wednesday, Watts followed it up with the ultimate birthday snap: a shot of the wild-eyed birthday girl going to town on a bed of multi-colored cake pops. The star posed an interesting question in the photo’s caption, asking: “Why eat one, when you can have them all?"

She makes a valid point.

Watts, who announced her split from longtime partner Liev Schreiber earlier this week, noted in the caption that the photo from the set of her upcoming Netflix series Gypsy, and was taken by director Sam Taylor-Johnson and also included a stream of hilarious hashtags like #cantstopme, #mybirthday, #cakepops, #strangeinvention, and #sorrynotsorry.
