There's a simple solution, cupcakes, just put a candle on the "birthday" one. Birthday cake and bobbing apples is the least of the germs we'll encounter...shopping carts, and have you ever been to a buffet? I saw a program once where they had tested the serving utensils from buffets...you don't even want to know!
It's making me sick just thinking about it!
