A birthday celebration would not be complete without food. And it’s not only children who want all sorts of food but the adults as well. Sure, a child would want the usual birthday foods on the table like cake, sweets, spaghetti, fried chicken, among others. An adult’s choice of dishes to be served on his or her natal day may be entirely different from that of the child’s but there may be one thing in common for both age brackets: cake.

Yes, even grownups still yearn to have cake on their birthday as a natal day celebration would like drab without this confection. The cake has become more like a symbol that defines the birthday celebration as fun-filled, free-spirited, and joyful. Without the cake, a birthday celebration would not be the same for the celebrator.
