Whipped up by Philadelphia’s Cake Life Bake Shop while she was in town for husband JAY-Z’s Made in America festival, the incredible three-tiered honey lavender confection was encrusted with geode crystal candy and topped with a crown inspired by the one Bey wore at the GRAMMYs earlier this year.

The bakery also made two more conventional cakes, as well as cookies shaped like beehives and crowns.
