WASHINGTON, D.C. (WILX) Utah Senator Mitt Romney celebrated his 72nd birthday Tuesday with a cake made out of his favorite treat, Twinkies.

But it's the way he blew out the candles that has the internet buzzing. Romney took out each individual candle and blew them out one-by-one.

He says he did it because he has a cold and didn't want to spread germs.

The special cake was presented to him by members of his staff.
