Helena Esau from Surrey Estate celebrates her 100th birthday. But it is not the many years she has lived that stole the show.
Her community surprised her with the mother of all birthday cakes. The cake reportedly measured 1mx1.5m, making Helena smile as she welcomed the extraordinary gift.
“We wanted to do something really huge for her on her 100th birthday. We looked around and thought that a cake that big would be good enough for the occasion,” says Sorprite.
Helena appreciated the gift and celebrated with her community in a colorful birthday full of excitement. Her 60-year-old daughter, Johanna Solomons, was perhaps the most excited of all.
“My mom’s happiness means a lot to me. I am very happy to see that she is happy. I feel truly blessed to still have my mom at my age,” she said.
As of today, the great-grandma has 34 grandchildren. She has 31 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.
She is in a wheelchair and reportedly spends most of her days reading newspapers and books.
