Susan lighting all 60 candles on my birthday cake. She made this fabulous vanilla bean cheesecake. My son had to stand at the ready with the fire extinguisher!☺

    WOW!!! The flame is really flaring upwards on this great shot!...That happened earlier this winter when I tried to light the kerosene lamp as an experiment for one of my daily diary series and could hardly get it the flame to go down...Should have taken a picture of it but I was too concerned it would burn the house down....Maybe 60 candles produced more power to the flame on this cake.
