UTAH (KAIT/NBC News) - Utah senator Mitt Romney celebrated his 72nd birthday Tuesday.
His staff brought him a cake made out of Twinkies.
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.
