It is more than a tradition. It is more than a celebration of a birthday. The reason is simple. “To let these children know that Jesus loves them.”
Those are the words of Ann Adix of Yorktown who turned 85 on Feb. 20.
Adix remembers her first cake from St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, the church she grew up in. She said, “I remember getting one (a birthday cake) when I was in kindergarten. It was the end of a jelly role but it had little pink flowers and green leaves on it. I remember holding that (cake) all the way to Davey which was 12 miles from town. It was so wonderful.”
She also remembers the first cake she baked for her nursery Sunday school class, 48 years ago.
