The End of the Cake

Sage’s spectacular birthday cake before it met its demise

All things must pass–joy, sorrow, winter, summer, long homework assignments, and (in this case) birthday cakes. Sage’s cake, complete with a three dimensional water slide, was truly spectacular this year.

Alas, however, it is no more; it’s been digested by happy party-goers. But it went out in a blaze of glory. Here are its final moments:

Aided by his friend Isaiah, Sage contemplated his candle blowing strategy.

Although some of the candles put up a fight, Sage triumphed. The wish was made, the candles were extinguished, and the cake was eaten.

It was a very happy birthday indeed. Unless you happen to be a cake.
