This sort of celebratory stegosaurus-tail baguette certainly upstages your ordinary old cupcake. The woman on the left was celebrating her “28th-and-a-half” birthday. I don’t see a half candle, but I went with it anyway. I didn’t wait to see, but I doubt that they got all the candles lit at the same time, the way they were facing. If they had turned around, it would have been a different story, but I wasn’t there to stage-manage their baguette. They were all very sweet and happy and that’s the end of the story.
