  2. She looks so happy : D Happy Belate Birdthday!

    I'm curious, is there a special meaning to the candle holders in the round or that they're not in a cake?

  3. Hello Jenny,

    Thanks for your wishes. The candle holders are very common in Germany. They come in a ring with twelve holes. Each year you add one more candle, the empty spaces are filled with little gnomes, elves, etc. You also have a "life light" in the middle of the ring, i.e. a large candle. Germans normally don't have a birthday cake with candles, in fact we don't necessarily have a birthday cake at all, just some special treat for tea time (which could be a cake or cookies or fruit with nuts). Nova Naturals sells a 16 hole ring. The Wooden Wagon also sells different versions. I had a ring like this as a child and am happy to pass this tradition on to my children.

  6. Thank you, Alexandra. When you wrote "young lady," I thought, it's true, she is not a little girl any more. Time has really flown.
