Gayle King allowed herself to indulge in some sugary decadence for her birthday on Saturday!

The 61-year-old CBS This Morning anchor -- and best friend to Oprah Winfrey -- "fell off [the] Weight Watchers wagon" when she enjoyed an enormous, multi-tiered birthday cake.

King shared pics of the delicious-looking delicacy to Instagram on Tuesday, and it's not hard to see how a confection like that could lead someone off the healthy eating path.

"Can't celebrate birthday without THE CAKE!" King captioned the cheerful b-day pics. "Yellow w/bananas foster filling & layer of caramel .. Yep fell off @weightwatchers wagon. Back on track today!"

Considering her bestie Oprah is the new spokesperson for Weight Watchers, King better get back on track, or things might get kind of awkward.

In fact, just days before King ditched the diet to dive into deliciousness, Oprah appeared in a powerful commercial for Weight Watchers where she talked about her own struggles with losing and gaining weight that brought many to tears.
