birthdaycakeIt’s their birthday and that means it’s time for balloons, birthday gifts and of course, cake. So light the candles, sing “Happy Birthday,” and tell them to make a wish because this age-old birthday tradition is one of the best around. The history of cakes and candles began in Ancient Greece. The Greeks made round cakes to honor Artemis, the goddess of the moon. They often decorated it with either 1 lit candle or several to represent the glow of the moon. Overtime, other cultures began to make cakes and ate them for their taste, rather than to honor Artemis. At ProFlowers
