Two of my sons celebrate birthdays in April and since they’ve been old enough to know there’s a birthday cake on their special day, I’ve made them each a chocolate cake decorated with Smarties. Specifically, I spell out their name on top of the cake with each letter in the same colour of the candy, and then dress the rest of the cake with what Smarties are left. I now use two boxes instead of just one. Every time I pour out the pieces I look to see if there’s enough of every colour, to do their names justice – each name is six letters long. Somehow it all works out. And why is that? Could hope and a little birthday magic have something to do with it? I think so.
