A specially baked cake, typically decorated with text and the person's age, is typically served at birthday celebrations across various cultures. The cake is generally adorned with a candle or number of candles that corresponds to the person's age, or with the same number of lit candles. The honoured person will typically make a silent request and attempt to extinguish the candles in one swift motion; if successful, the desire is said to be granted. The request must be kept a secret in order for it to "come true" in many cultures. Birthday Images Wishes provides best Birthday wishes images.
