A curmudgeon and his cake

Bloganuary demands, “Describe your perfect birthday cake.”

Another trip around the sun?
Another year’s journey just begun?
Another cake to mark the occasion?
– I find it hard to raise the passion!

Clown face cakes with lots of icing
Adventure themes destroyed when slicing
These were part of long ago youth
To think of such now seems uncouth.

A perfect cake now seems quite moot
Maybe I’d rather a bowl of fruit
Besides, there’s the challenge of how to handle
Blowing out such a multitude of candle!

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.

  1. A friend of mine has a solution to blowing out such numerous candles. She made a cake board. A flat board with holds drilled to hold 100 candles. The cake board can be decorated with frosting, candles inserted and lighted. The cake is safe for eating. Was very handy since Covid, as no one is blowing onto the cake to be eaten.
