When putting candles on a birthday cake, you should put the same number as the birthday person’s age, plus one more for good luck.
Make a wish before you blow the candles out. If you blow out all the birthday candles on your birthday cake with the first puff you will get your wish.
For good luck, the birthday person should make the first cut of the cake. Make another birthday wish before you slice and don’t tell anyone what you wished for and your wish will come true.
To seal the deal, the lucky birthday person should get the first piece of cake, then the rest of the guests celebrating get served afterwards.
