Birthday Cakes

Tonight I am thinking about Birthday Cakes.

Birthday Cake, Candles, Canada Map, Birthday FeastOne that comes to mind is this one that a friend in Toronto made for me four years ago when I was visiting there. See: The Birthday Cake

I will most likely not have a cake for my birthday this year, but I do like to remember some of the ones from when I was young. Most of my cakes were made by my Mom as she had a cake decorating business.
