And don't try to blow them out with farts. That never works out well.

Wife and kids thought it would be funny to use those candles you can't blow out on my birthday. My 40th. Did not end well,needless to say. The more I blew,the higher the flames went and the blacker they got. Threw the cake out the back door and spent the next day washing down the walls and ceiling. Twentythree birthdays later and I still demand a buttermilk pie,no cakes,please.

It could have been worse.

They could have had a pinata.

FYI, roman candles are fireworks. You don't put them on a cake.

A few years back, my family and I went to my inlaws for my wife's grandmother's birthday. They got a fire crew to deliver her cake. They showed up with lights on and fire gear on and stayed for the song and blowing the candles out.

Hardly anyone in my family will let me go and get a birthday cake any more because I always insist on ire putting as many candles on there as they are years old. Apparently it's a "fire hazard" to put 47 candles on a small cake.
