Make a wish. Actually, don’t bother.

time for this “tradition” to go by the wayside, along with birthday spankings of my youth.
This pic is sad to me
Well, she will get the biggest piece with extra hair and boogers!
The birthday cake in your face ‘tradition’ doesn’t please the kids! Isn’t this suppose to be a kids party?
I agree! I hated when my kids dad did that to them
Glad I’m not the only one with those memories or that picture.
I’ll take a piece at the end where hair and spit haven’t been smushed into the frosting.
this made me so sad. that poor girl had to go the rest of HER party with icing in her hair and probably up her nose.
She’ll be able to get revenge when she’s an adult and it’s HIS birthday!
The little blond girl’s (in the background) reaction is pretty much what I think most folks would have!
“… I .. wish … I … could … breathe …”
I’ve just been reading the comments of Facebook, where everyone is aghast. Relax. It’s a cultural thing. You really can’t judge the custom outside of the whole context. During 20+ years living in Mexico, I saw lots of kids *love* having their faces covered in cake – and a few cry. It’s certainly not something that would “ruin” your birthday memory — it’s expected to happen whenever there is a celebration cake. I’ve seen plenty of brides get their face pushed into the cake, too — and take it with a sense of humor and grace. And yes, I have had my own – adult – face pushed into the cake more than once. Not a biggie — you live in the culture, you roll with the punches.
What a rediculous custom and SO crass! What person, all prettied up for a party wants their face smashed in a cake? What guest wants to eat the remains? Gross!

This is normal in a Latino household. “Que le muerda, que le muerda…” LOL
it’s moments like these you really wish you were an orphan 😉
