Sofia Vergara may have had to work on her birthday, but at least she was surrounded by friends.

The Emmy-nominated actress, who turned 41 today safe in the knowledge that she can rock a thong like nobody's business, enjoyed cake with cast and crew on the set.

"Happy bday on the set !! My cake!!!!!" she tweeted excitedly along with a pic of the big cake decorated with berries and frosting roses.

Scripted across the top in green frosting was, simply, "Happy birthday, Sofia."

"My cake!!! My cake!!!" she reiterated alongside of a pic of her cutting into that bad boy.

Vergara also got to celebrate her birthday in singular fashion with the release of the August issue of Harper's Bazaar, featuring the Colombian-born beauty on the cover.

"I don't think there's ever going to be a better part for me," she told the magazine, referring to her role as Ed O'Neill's sultry and sassy wife, Glorida Delgado-Pritchett, on Modern Family. "But I do think—and my son and boyfriend agree with me—that I could play a crazy psychopath. I'm not joking."

Well, she sports a bullet-spewing bra in Machete Kills, in theaters Oct. 4. Does that count?

Moreover, Vergara doesn't seem to mind putting in a certain amount of effort to ensure that she's always putting her best face forward.

"I'm Latin; I do it no matter what. It's automatic. I shower, do hair and makeup," she said. "For me, it's like shaving. I don't believe in a natural look. Lipstick brightens your face! Unless you're Gisele Bündchen or 19, you need something."

May Gisele look as good as Sofia when she hits 41!
