How many candles is too many on a birthday cake? My boyfriend just celebrated his 21st on Monday and I had to buy two packs of candles. We got so excited when we found these awesome birthday candles that burned colored flames (of course we had to buy them). I remember celebrating my grandmothers 72nd birthday. We actually put 72 candles on her cake. It was a rather small round cake so when all the candles were on it, the top of the cake was covered. We had as many people as possible lighting the candles so they wouldn’t burn the whole way down before we were done. When she blew them all out the smoke alarm in the kitchen actually went off. We all laughed. I can only hope my grandchildren someday will get to laugh at me too.
Since my boyfriend was turning the big 21 I wanted to do something special. We are big breakfast people so I thought making a birthday breakfast would be a great idea. These sticky buns paired with his favorite pork sausage,fresh fruit, and egg whites were a perfect start to the day.
When I asked Kip what he wanted for his birthday dinner he had told me he wanted my spaghetti and meatballs. It’s really funny that out of all things I make he wanted meatballs. He never used to eat meatballs until he tried mine. I guess he wasn’t lying when he said he liked them 🙂
