I could post this picture as one of those “what’s wrong with this picture” in a Highlights magazine. It may get you wondering why the candles are in a piece of bread?? Well….Hayes requested Grandma Burma’s (Trish’s mom) brownie pudding. It came out of the oven piping hot and I stuck 10 candles in. They quickly began to melt in the hot pudding under the cake. I pulled them out as quick as I could, but ended up digging out 10 little rounds of melted wax in chocolate cake. It didn’t make for a very pretty cake, but it still tasted good. After we’d filled ourselves with cake and ice cream, Hayes announced that he’d never gotten to blow his candles out. So I grabbed the nearest food item that would hold candles (a piece of bread) and the tradition of candle blowing survived to see another birthday!
He got them all in one blow! :)
Here’s to you kiddo!
(note the melted bottoms of the candles from their dip in the brownie pudding)
