For most people birthday cake is an indispensable item in a birthday celebration. Whenever there is a birthday party, it is always expected that there is also a birthday cake. Why this tradition flourished is because of certain symbolisms associated with life in itself. Most birthday cakes have a candle on top which is blown after the birthday song has been sung.  Tradition of placing candles on birthday cake is attributed to early Greeks, who used place lit candles on cakes to make them glow like the moon. Greeks used to take the cake to the temple of Artemis, goddess of Moon. Some scholars say that candles were placed on the cake because people believe that the smoke of the candle carried their wishes and prayers to Gods who lived in the skies. Others believe that the custom originated in Germany where people used to place a large candle in the center of the cake to symbolize ‘the light of life’.

In present times, people place candles on birthday cakes and a silent wish is made before blowing out the candle. It is believed that blowing out all candles in one breath means the wish will come true and the person with enjoy good luck in the coming year. Some also smear out the name of the person before slicing of the cake to bring good luck. Although these beliefs sound superstitious, these however created the art of birthday cake designing.
