The republican used a unique method to blow out the candles.

Because he has a cold and didn't want to spread germs, he blew each candle out one by one.

At one point, Romney appeared to realize the one-at-a-time approach may not have been the best idea.

Eventually, the candles were extinguished and Romney shared the Twinkie cake with staffers.
