A German woman was not able to blow out her candles and make a wish, but her birthday cake served as an even better present â it saved her life.

The 26-year-old driver skidded on a snowy road and hit a tree near Freudenstadt, but walked away uninjured after landing on her homemade birthday cake, Germanyâs The Local reports.

The car was completely wrecked, The Local reports, but the woman was fine after being caught by her airbag and the cake, police said.
