Happy birthday, Willie!

On Friday, the youngest TODAY anchor celebrated the day of his birth with friends, cake and, er, bourbon once the team had a moment to cool off from the morning's raging dance fever.

Willie's longtime friend Megan Colarossi — back in 1A for a fun debate over social etiquette (do you tell loved ones when you don't like a gift they've given you?) — brought Willie his favorite cocktail (Maker’s Mark with a splash of ginger ale, lime and extra ice), cookies and "German" chocolate cake.

Tamron and Erica bring out German chocolate cake in honor of Willie's birthday.
