When the Birthday Cake is bright,
Not just from the soft Sponge,
Sandwich with Raspberry jam and Cream,
Or the rich fruit cake,
Or the many cake recipes,
That wows someone each day of the year.
It could be the designs, decorations in varied colours,
Of and on Royal icing, American frosting,
Rolled icing or Italian meringue.
Not forgetting the size of the cake,
Then the piece d’resistance,
The lighted candles,
And time to make a wish and blow them out.
