Garth Brooks celebrated his 55th birthday yesterday (Tuesday, February 7th), but he got an early surprise from his wife, Trisha Yearwood, while filming his weekly online series, Inside Studio G: A Monday Night Conversation, the night before. Garth was in mid-sentence when he was interrupted by a knock at the door and in came Trisha carrying a German Chocolate Cake — the superstar's favorite — complete with lit candles and a serenade of "Happy Birthday."
Trisha was in the birthday spirit complete with party hat. She said she had been standing outside the door so long that the candles that originally spelled out "happy birthday" were no longer legible.
Trisha said she has made this cake for Garth every single year on his birthday for the dozen they have been together. The recipe appears in her Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen cookbook. In the clip, Garth said, “Nobody can bake or cook like (Trisha) does. She spoils me to death and it’s the best day on the planet!”
