It is commonplace in South Africa to celebrate birthdays with a cake. Birthday cakes date back to ancient Greece when cakes were baked to commemorate the birthdays of gods and goddesses. Today, the candles
that we light on birthday cakes can be linked to the Greek moon god, Artemis, who insisted that her birthday cake be covered in lit candles. In the middle ages, the English would conceal symbolic items inside the birthday cake to forecast the finder's future. Items such as gold coins, rings and thimbles were hidden inside the cake.
Many superstitions have evolved over the years about cutting into a birthday cake. These include making a wish if the knife touches the bottom of the plate or kissing the person standing next to you if crumbs of the cake adhere to the surface of the knife. Another superstition and one still in practice today is to make a wish when blowing out the candles. If all the candles are blown out with the first puff, then the wish will come true.
