What better way to wish someone a Happy Birthday than with a famous masterpiece? The greeting card company, Papyrus, created a series of art history themed birthday cards by placing a birthday cake in a famous work of art. Works such as Michelangelo’s David, Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus and the leaning tower of Pisa all incorporate a birthday cake with blazing candles. Which one is your favorite?
