It only takes some funny birthday candles to turn an awkward event into a good laugh.
The older people get, the more self-conscious about their age they seem to become. No matter whether someone is turning 16, 27, 74 or 115 everyone these days is worried about getting older. So if you have to make up a cake for an age-o-phobe, these funny birthday candles should do the trick. The candles that simply inform birthday goers "don't ask" are available from NPW. What happens if someone happens to ask, despite the extremely clear birthday cake instructions? In that case, an age-o-phobic beat down is entirely warranted.
Just remember, a birthday is just celebrating the fact that you've survived another trip around the sun.
