A large cake with as many different colored candles on it as there are

guests, is passed around, and each one takes a piece of it, with the

candle too, choosing whatever color they wish.

As the cake passes from one to the other, the hostess reads the

following prophecies, having prepared them beforehand to suit the


"Bright and cheery, candle red,

The year is here in which you wed."

"If your candle green should be,

You will find your love at sea."

"Lonely, hopeless, spinster she,

If white candle hers should be."

"Happy he with candle blue,

Thy sweetheart is ever true."

"She who holds a candle yellow,

Marries now a jealous fellow."
