"Some of my best memories have been with this girl, laughing in the kitchen. Happy birthday to the ray of light that is @karliekloss," Taylor wrote alongside the pic that also showed boyfriend Calvin Harris standing by.

Karlie later shared Taylor's tweet, writing: "So many unforgettable memories + baked goods + LOTS of laughs in that kitchen. Looking forward to many many more!"

The blonde beauty gave another nod to her pop singer pal by posting a video of her birthday cake with the song "22" playing in the background. "Final minutes of 'feeling 22'," Karlie captioned the video.

"When you've got this group of girls who need each other as much as we need each other, in this climate, when it's so hard for women to be understood and portrayed the right way in the media… now more than ever we need to be good and kind to each other and not judge each other," she explained.
