Daniel Neman St. Louis Post-Dispatch Published 5:27 PM EDT Jun 19, 2019 My father grew up during the Depression. His family was exceptionally poor, but even so they managed to celebrate special events. A birthday meant a birthday cake from a bakery. But they couldn’t afford to special-order a cake, so they instead would buy a mistake, a cake that someone else had ordered but had never picked up. My father used to joke that his cakes always said “Happy Birthday Marianne” on them. Many years later, my mother thought it would be funny on his birthday to give him a cake reading “Happy Birthday Marianne.” She asked a bakery to make one. There are several ways to spell the name: Marianne, Maryann, Mary Ann, Mary Anne. The baker asked her how to spell it. “Oh, it doesn’t matter,” said my mother. You can imagine the look on the baker’s face. I mention this story because birthday cakes are inexplicably on my mind right now, and was … [Read more...] about You’re not getting older, you’re just eating birthday cake

David Jesse Detroit Free Press Published 9:00 AM EDT Apr 5, 2019 2016 was a very good year. Sparked by the football team playing in the January college football playoffs, merchandise bearing Michigan State University's logo was the hottest it had ever been. About $6 million flowed into the university's bank accounts and life was good. The school hasn't reached those heights since, due in large part to the Larry Nassar scandal. More: From T-shirts to koozies, here’s where MSU fans can get official merch More: Fake MSU merchandise isn't new. Using Cassius Winston's photo to sell it is. But, thanks to the Spartan basketball team's Final Four run, the demand for anything with the team's logo on it is hot again, said Samantha Stevens, MSU's director of licensing. And if it's got a logo on it and you can buy it — even that birthday cake your daughter wants for her party next week — it must be approved by Stevens' office. Here's what you need to know about how … [Read more...] about You might need MSU’s permission for your birthday cake
A DEVIOUS distraction thief snatched an 88-year-old's handbag as the elderly lady shopped for her birthday cake in a heartless burglary Rosa Zito had asked her son Joe to reach down and show her a chocolate sponge when the opportunistic woman swooped – grabbing the elderly woman's bag in just a few seconds. But despite Joe immediately rushing to security, the pickpocket managed to get away. Since the March 9 robbery at the Bradford Rd Asda in Huddersfield, Joe said his mother had not been able to shop at the store - too scared to return. He said: “She has been shopping there her whole life but now my brother has been doing her shopping. "It has taken away her independence." Speaking to the Sun Online, Joe claimed he had even apologised to the thief as she loitered near them – thinking she had also been wanting to look at the cakes. Joe, who is in his 50s, said: "It was the day before her birthday and we were choosing her cake, she was so excited. "She asked me to … [Read more...] about Female distraction thief took 88-year-old woman’s handbag as she picked her birthday cake in Asda
A DAD was left hopping mad when he says a supermarket ruined his son’s specially made frog-themed birthday cake with its “pathetic” decorating. Shane Hallford, 43, forked out a hefty £28 ($49AUD) on the cake to help celebrate Mason’s third birthday in Tamworth, New South Wales, in Australia. The dad-of-two said his request for in-store bakers to supply a frog-themed birthday cake was confirmed by the shop three days prior to picking it up yesterday. But the policeman and his wife Amy, 29, were horrified to discover that their son’s cake looked "nothing" like the treat they had specified. Instead of the colourful number three and big green frog they had both envisioned, the "mortified" parents were met with a "pathetic" smiley face and small number three clumsily piped in green icing. Luckily, a sympathetic cake decorator mate came to their rescue, and managed to repair the botched cake just in time for Mason's party. Shane explained: "I went down to … [Read more...] about Disgusted dad slams supermarket for ruining his son’s frog-themed birthday cake with their ‘pathetic’ decorating skills
