Birthday Cake

Maybe you like chocolate,
With the icing smooth as silk
Or shortcake filled with strawberries
To serve with ice-cold milk.

You might select a carrot cake
With yummy cream cheese frosting
Or mocha or red velvet – 
All the choices are exhausting!

It’s possible that you would choose
An ice cream filled confection;
A pie or tart would be, to some,
Their number one selection.

Whatever one is served to you,
With candles all aglow,
Will be just perfect on your day
To make a wish and blow.

So happy birthday! Hope your cake
Fulfills your appetite.
A birthday comes but once a year,
So take a giant bite!

    Just went to a 1 year old birthday. He got his own little cake. The little musher. :) He certainly took his bite. :)
