An Elvis Birthday Scrapbook

Elvis Happy Birthday

It’s a challenge to come up with a different way to celebrate Elvis’ birthday every year. One thing I haven’t tried is a scrapbook – an album of photos marking the event. So, I gave it a try with the pictures arranged in different categories.

 

Elvis Enjoying His Birthday Cake:

Elvis Cutting Cake with Sam Phillips Easter Weekend 1957

If you recognized Sam Phillips in this shot, you’ve got a good eye. The website where I found it says it was taken in 1957. If anyone has more accurate information on the dates of these photos, please post it on Comments.

Elvis Eating Cake while in the Army 1959

This is obviously an Army shot, taken in the barracks by the look of the cot nearby. I believe this was taken in 1959.

Elvis Cutting Cake at his 27th Birthday 1962

Elvis never performed at the Las Vegas Sahara Hotel, so I’m not sure why he had this cake on his 27th birthday in 1962.

Elvis Birthday Cake During Wild in The Country 1961

Elvis’ 26th birthday in 1961 took place while he was filming Wild In the Country.

Feeding Birthday cake to Priscilla in 1960

The website where I found this says it is Elvis feeding birthday cake to Priscilla in 1960. I don’t know if it was for her birthday or his. Anybody Know?

Elvis Birthday Cake During King Creole 1958

That’s Delores Hart on the left, so it looks like Elvis celebrated his 23rd birthday while filming King Creole in 1958 or his 24th during Loving You in 1957.

 

Elvis With His Birthday Presents:

1958 Elvis Birthday with Priscilla

It looks like Elvis is having a great time opening this big box.

Elvis Receiving Presents at Graceland Gate

This present is smaller, and Elvis is older and snappily dressed.

 

Elvis Cake Designs:

Elvis Presley Sun Record Cake

I’ve seen several round cakes designed to look like a record, but this is particularly well done.

Elvis Presley Love me Tender Cake

It looks like this icing Elvis is about to slide off the cake. I can’t imagined that it was planned to look like this.

Three Tier Elvis Cake

Somebody went all-out to create this three-tier cake with Elvis and a hula dancer on top.

Elvis Presley Guitar Cake

I wonder how many sections of cake had to be held together with icing to give this guitar cake a seamless look. There’s a round cake below it, but the glare makes it impossible to see what it says.

 

Birthday Greetings Creations:

Elvis and Baloons Happy Birthday

Nicely done. Not so busy as most.

Three Elvis Happy Birthday

Triple Elvis. I like it, but one of them should have been a 50s Elvis.

Elvis Cake Cartoon

Enjoy that hunk-a hunk-a birthday cake.

Elvis Birthday with Northern Lights

Nice use of the Northern Lights to frame Elvis’ face.

 

Elvis Presley I Need a Birthday Kiss

I hope you enjoyed our Elvis Birthday Scrapbook.

    I enjoyed the birthday scrapbook! Re: the one with Dolores Hart- I too always thought it was a birthday cake but recently learned from an authority that it was a movie wrap party after King Creole to say goodbye to Elvis before the army, and the cake had a guitar and soldier peeling potatoes and said We Love Elvis on it. I saw the exact (March)date and the name of the other actress, but it escapes my reach now, sorry.

  2. Phillip,
    Thanks so much for your integrity as you research and find new items concerning Elvis that are authentic . I wish you the best in 2018 and support you 100% in your efforts.
    Regards
    Billy Martin

    Hi Phil,
    That number 7 photo you attached above with cakes/gifts for Elvis on his birthday
    was taken during the set of “Love me Tender” with Debra Paget in 1956, but the one you have is cropped. If you want the original please tell me where to send it to you, because I have it. And I think it was a Teddy-Bear (have that photo also)

  4. The picture at the Sahara was of Elvis and Milton Prell, owner of the Sahara and a friend of the Colonel.

  5. These are very sweet. Keep up the good work,

  6. About the picture of Elvis giving Priscilla a bite of birthday cake. If the year was 1960, and it was a birthday cake, think it had to be Elvis’ Jan. 8th birthday as he left active duty at Fort Dix, New Jersey, on March 5, 1960. Believe Priscilla’s birthday is May 24th.
