Do you have any special birthdays coming up? My dad’s birthday is April 1st, so I’ve been brainstorming a fun gift I can mail to Michigan. But if we lived in the same place, I’d love to bring out a cake with these tall gold candles. They’re masculine, elegant and grown-up enough for someone who all your friends think is a spy.

P.S. Cheeky birthday candles, and birthday cheese.
