Cakes will forever be part of a person’s birthday celebration (regardless of age). A cake holds candles which represents the age of the birthday celebrator. As a symbol of unity, everyone gathers to sing the happy birthday song and the celebrator will traditionally make a wish (usually not recited aloud but only to himself/ herself) and then blow the flames form the candles out. If you get them all in one blow, it is said that all your wishes will come true. Maybe just putting fun to the tradition too.
A Cake usually represents a person- his/ her personality and favourites. For kids, their cakes are usually carriers characters and designs they like. For adults, cake nowadays may still have those traditional sugar flowers but it can be a unique and special cake for the celebrator. Cakes for adults may also come in a well-decorated fondant cake. Cake transformed from colorful icings and sweet messages to a whole new level and to add, the really skillful bakers today are nailing it.
Whatever design it may be, one thing is for sure. No celebration will ago by without a sweet cake and unique cake that everyone will enjoy! This is in no particular order.
