Inside: “We’ll pass on the trick candles!”
This is my latest birthday card. In case you are wondering, yes, those are dentures imbedded in the top of the cake.
The inspiration for this card came from my husband’s elderly uncle. We were at his birthday gathering and it came time to blow out the candles on the cake. Even though he didn’t have trick candles on his cake, he almost lost his dentures in the process of blowing! So when I began to think of other ideas for birthday cards, I remembered that he had to stop mid-blow and shove his teeth back in his mouth. I thought that the only thing that would be better than that was if he actually lost his teeth and had them land on the cake!
