That is “Happy Round Birthday” in German if you are wondering. The “round” birthdays are the ones that end in 0. In Germany and in Scandinavian countries the Round Birthdays are celebrated as great events often with hundreds of guests. No matter where you live, a Round Birthday is a milestone we all hope to meet.
In our office, we celebrated Brenda’s Round Birthday of 70 years. I borrowed a clever idea from my friend Joan who, on the occasion of our friend’ Betty’s 90th Round Birthday, baked 90 cupcakes with candles on each one.
So, I set about baking 70 cupcakes, decorating them in bright colors and putting candles on each. Then, I formed them in the shape of the number 70. It was a hit again! I’ll hope you’ll do it for someone’s next Round Birthday. Hint: Leave plenty of time to light all the candles before the guest of honor arrives. If it’s a really BIG Round Birthday, it could take several people to do the job.
