My father turns 70 today. In our family, that means pyrotechnics.
We traditionally get our birthday cakes from Robert’s Bakery, in downtown Butler. My brother loaded up the cake with 70 candles, and Dad managed to get them all extinguished before the cake caught fire.
The icing did melt a bit though.
Happy birthday, Dad!
We had two boxes of 36 candles just sitting in a drawer. This had to be done.
I mentioned before that my dad wasn’t especially bothered by his 70th? One exception — he definitely didn’t want 70 candles on his cake.
No one ever seems to want the full count of candles, but it’s yet to stop us. Sometimes I even use extra candles, just for effect. These are the spoils of being the youngest!
That is a TON of candles… hope he had a nice birthday!
Whoah! That’s awesome — and a bit frightening — to see that many candles on a cake. Best wishes to your dad!
