Candles on a Cake

I was curious why it was candles! Here's what I found:

Candles on the Cake

There are a few possible explanations as to why we have candles on birthday cakes, nobody is completely sure how the tradition started.

One possible reason is because the ancient Greeks used to take cakes (round to represent the full moon) to the temple of their goddess of the moon, Artemis. The Greeks are said to have placed candles on the cake to make it look as if it was glowing like the moon.

It has also been claimed that the Germans invented birthday cakes, and celebrated birthdays with a cake called "Geburtstagorten". The Germans were known to have been skilled candlemakers and may have put small candles on their cakes, possibly for religious reasons.

The BESTEST Birthday

Now that I'm older we don't do too much for my birthday but my mom has never failed to make my birthday special somehow. When I was younger she was so creative in making any type of cake that I wanted (a favorite was a Pac Man Party I had). And now she will make favorites of mine. A couple years ago she made me homemade TIRAMISU! OMG! That's like my FAVORITE dessert!! So, yeah, my mom is always making my birthdays memorable in some way!
