What a whirlwind for Aarti Sequeira. Sunday was her Star win, followed by a busy week of appearances and interviews. And today Aarti celebrates her 32nd birthday. We caught up with her up in Studio B at Food Network's Chelsea HQ with her husband, Brendan, and raised a fluffy-flowered cupcake in her honor. Watch her hubby serenade her — so sweet. And yes, she shared the treat during the impromptu b-day "paarti." (You can also catch some cute pix of the couple and their family here.) Want to share your birthday wishes with Aarti? Leave comments and we'll share them with her, or check out her Facebook fan page.

How should Aarti celebrate her birthday?
