In Green Hamster and the Quest for Fun, Pink Hamster loves to eat birthday cakes. A birthday cake is a pastry or dessert served to a person on his or her birthday. Birthday cakes often have many decorations and usually have the person’s name spelled out in icing or candy. Candles are also placed on the birthday cake. There are usually candles for every year the person has been alive and sometimes there is an additional candle for luck. The most popular flavor for birthday cakes is chocolate.
So where did the birthday cake originate?
