I'm guessing New South Wales and Queensland, in Australia There's been a sandstorm over there :/ BTW, yes, some are interested in your birthday cake blowing ^^ mercy : excellent site, I didn't know this one ^^

Thank you Intoxicunt for not typing "first!!!" =) And yeah, Cakewrecks rule And OP, really.....? You were surprised that powder could blow off a cake..?

Youtube. Intoxicunt. The only video. Just search it, it won't kill you. :) Haha, plexi, that would have been fun. I just blew so much trying to put those damn magic candles out that I got wax and ash everywhere. You're welcome, person. [=

lol you sure are persistent ^^ the camera makes it look like the whole cake goes on fire at one point ^^ If it's been that difficult at 17, just hope your friends don't get magic candles when you're twice as old ;)

Yeah, but I insist on real candles instead of the ones with the number on them. It's going to be fun.. Also, like it says, my voice is NOT that annoying in real life. I'm horrified at how I sound on camera.

Haha, thanks. When I hear myself on camera, my reaction is "AAAHHH! Make me shut up!" My mom hates her voice on camera too, so I guess it is just a common thing. Are you the one who commented on it?

nope, I did not. I don't think I have a youtube account, actually. anyway, had I commented it, I would have signed in a recognisable fashion (i.e. with "pall" or "palleas") about the voice, there's a situation even more troubling : that's when you have to speak on a mic... At first, you're just wondering who the hell's talking and you have to go on talking (or singing in the unlikely event of a karaoke) even though you're horrified at the annoying voice coming out of the hps...

Someone did comment on it. Huh. >_> Yeah, my singing voice in my microphone is as bad. I don't know why I sound so much better live... @#30, are you replying to me? I have no way of knowing.

The other kind of "blowing" generally takes me even less time to get the job done. ;) Thank you, plexi! We'll have some sexy babies. Seriously, keep me away from them or I may commit Wincest.

Good point. Hmmm...I guess my voice is just awful in person too! Way to crush my hope!!! :( I mix eloquence, wit, and immature humor. If you really pay attention, about half my comments are jokes along the lines of "That's what she said." I also comment war like a motherfucker. =]

I get it! Cocoa powder burns like cinnamon. So, when the cocoa powder met the flames of the candles, it's basically like a mini firestorm. Yet it still burns like hell.

I was pointing out that "master" is what you call a dude. And LOL, yeah, my Youtube is getting attention now. I'll probably upload more vids now that there are people watching the damn thing.

I used to work at a Bulk Barn, we sold that stuff in bulk and had to fill up the barrel with a 40kg bag of the stuff... It gets EVERYWHERE!!!! and is close to impossible to get out until you wash it off... which i would not suggest you do with your camera. I agree, FML.. partially because of the camera but mainly because of the cocoa powder explosion.

FANTASTIC! you totally deserved it, I really wish I could have seen that :) Not fyl though, even for you it must have been funny ^^ and I agree with the very delicately named MikeLitoris, what a great birthday present!

Very true! I've done science demonstrations at museums with fire and flour. Cocoa powder, flour, and non-dairy creamer in powder form are highly flammable when "aerosolized" (An aerosol is a suspension of fine solid particles or liquid droplets in a gas -wikipedia). This is something bakeries and huge food manufacturing plants that use flour worry about because with enough of it, it can create quite the explosion (and some have died as a result), but it takes mass quantities in the air. I bet there was a considerable amount of cocoa powder dusted on the cake and the candles were located on the back part of the cake. Blowing at the right angle, the cocoa would be kicked up and turn into a flame rather quickly. I don't think it would be a huge flame, but enough to shock the OP.

While this is extremely true (and really cool if you know how to use it esp with more flammable particulates such as coal powdered) I think the OP would've mentioned it if this occurred.
