Birthday Surprise

On a Whimsical Adventure: Memories of Summer Collection Biggie

Journaling: It was my second birthday, and Mom made an amazing layer cake for my party. She even topped the cake with a pink parasol. We all had a big surprise when the birthday candles were lit. Can you guess what happened?

The thin tissue paper of the parasol sat right above the candles on the cake, so when the candles were lit, the rising heat eventually started the parasol on fire! I’m sure Mom handled the unexpected blaze just fine, but it became one of our family stories. “Remember when the cake started on fire?”
