    or don't let a fool loose with candles and matches ;-)

    Well here’s my effort, not at all happy especially as I chose the theme.
    Had some good idea’s for the subject that never came off due to one thing or the other, namely work! :mad:

    Never mind, anyway on to the picture.

    My dear old Ma’s 60th, her hubby Frank had bought a plain old sponge cake and had stayed up till 2 in the morning decorating it :D 10/10 for effort.

    He then decided it also needed 60 candles on it :eek:
    Unfortunately small cake + large quantity of candles ended up with 4 or 5 at a time bunched together resulting in one hell of a fire hazard, the heat was that intense that the candles melted before being burnt covering the top of the newly decorated cake in a half inch of wax :rotfl:

    The picture seems to have suffered some under compression as well!
    Oh well there is always next month :hiya:
