There were 70 candles on the cake, plus the ones on the number 70. My daughter took this picture as I started to blow them out. It took 10 to 15 seconds to get them all out, after several breaths, and trying not to spit on the cake. The candle wax melted on the cake because I took awhile to get over to the table and have them sing to me...we had to throw out the waxy part of the chocolate cake. That was a shame!
I had the last piece of the white cake today; it was pretty stale. The frosting was still good!
Needless to say, I had a great time at my birthday party. Lots of good friends and family, and many cards and even some gift certificates to local restaurants.
