Do you know of a few characters in the movie that stand out? Maybe we can add some cupcakes with a character theme too.

Birthday Cakes history

It is commonplace in South Africa to celebrate our birthday's with a stunning and delicious birthday cake. Although the Greeks were the first to use cakes for birthday celebrations, they were commonly used of to commemorate the birthdays of gods and goddesses.

These days candles are common on a birthday cake. This can be linked to the Greek moon god Artemis. Artemis insisted her birthday cakes to be covered with lit candles.

In the middle ages, the English would conceal symbolic items inside the cake. Each was a forecast for the finder's future.

Normally items such as gold coins, rings as well as thimbles were baked right into the cake. The birthday cake made its means to
western society in the mid 19th century. Since then is has been an important part of birthday celebrations.

When cutting right into ones birthday cake, there are some superstitions that have developed over the ages. One is if the knife touches the bottom, the birthday person can make a wish. Another is when the knife that is cutting has bits of cake on it, the birthday person must kiss some close to them.

Another belief is when you blow the candles out on your cake, you are meant to make a wish. If the candle lights are blown out in one strike and also the wisher keeps the desire a secret, after that it is thought the desire will come true.

Birthday cakes are usually decorated with lots of colors and flowers or something of that kind. Kids Birthday cakes commonly have cartoon personalities of their favorite characters on the cake.
