Never Put Icing Sugar On A Birthday Cake, Or This Might Happen

Seriously, don't do it.

Ah, birthdays. Is there anything more awkward than waiting for people to finish singing to you and not knowing what to do while they finish the song?

Well, things could get a little more awkward if you make the same easy mistake that this mum did. She dusted her son's cake with icing sugar before putting the candles in.

When he went to blow out the flames, he created a cloud of sugar which then ignited into a fireball that could've caused some serious damage.

Luckily the birthday boy was unharmed and they could all laugh it off, but it was a close call.
