Let’s not kid ourselves: Birthdays are a big thing in Miami. Most of times it means dressing up and having a big celebration.
Some celebrate with family; some, with friends. Sometimes you organize it yourself, or sometimes someone else throws it for you. One thing is for certain (and my mom used to emphasize this): There is no birthday without a Birthday Cake in Miami! If you are feeling it, you can even light up some candles, sign and then blow them out (don’t forget to make a wish!) Or you can simply just cut the cake and pass it around. However you end up doing it, the cake must be up to the challenge.
