A CAKE. To Celebrate Birthdays. Or ANYTHING for that matter.
There is something universally acknowledged about CAKE. It’s what you eat when you are celebrating something special, usually a birthday. Some things come to mind when I think about a birthday cake….
The first impression of seeing the cake: Is it chocolate? Strawberry? Ice cream? Anticipation…
The flame of the candle and the drip of the wax. Always a skill seeing how many you can light and the Hustle/bustle of rounding people into the room in time
The Singing. I can’t sing to save my life, but I enjoy watching everyone sing Happy Birthday. Someone is bound to ham it up
The blow out of the candles, and the occasional struggle to leave a couple burning. And the ridicule that follows
The slicing ritual, a little different each time. I enjoy critiquing the slicer, although some call it “ball breaking!’
The funny stories that usually flow while eating the cake.
One of the first of many happy memories I have at LM Foods was our first birthday celebration.
