These are clearly letter candles. What do they spell (number)?

Did you make the cupcakes? Interesting candle basing alternative.

Interesting observations, kosh!

Yes, letter candles, they spelled Happy Birthday which looked funny on the plate all squished in, and then the camera has it backwards, too.

Our 6 year old granddaughter mentioned my cupcakes 'are much better than your cakes, Nana' so we made the cupcakes : )

The birthday-ee is our nephew, who was visiting at the time ~

I just loved the cheeks, his finger tips glowing a bit, the light from the candles... so I added.

The shot is cool for those reasons. 

"Birthday-ee" is very gender neutral

Regarding cakes v. cupcakes, you're not alone. There's a bakery in Greensboro called Maxie B's tha makes cupcakes, but I've found the same recipes in cake slice format don't seem to taste as good. Can't tell you why.

The recipe has to change to work right from cupcake to cake and vice versa, they say, which makes sense as baking is all about the chemical reactions.

My grandgirl doesn't mince words, either.

'Birthday-ee' was entirely due to being early here, comment typing pre-morning tea even, and couldn't think of what is normally said. I kind of like it!
