JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Even though you can’t throw a huge birthday party due to COVID-19, now you can safely blow out the candles on your cake thanks to a Jacksonville dentist who has invented Top It Cake Shield.Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, when large celebrations become popular again, health officials fear it will no longer be safe to blow out the candles on a cake. So, Florida-based prosthetic dentist, Dr. Billy Kay, created a plastic cake-shaped shield to protect the cake icing from being sprayed by germs from the birthday boy or girl’s mouth.Courtesy: Top It Cake ShieldGoing forward it makes sense in general to protect a cake from the potential diseases that were traditionally blown all over the cake in the past.During the pandemic downtime, Kay designed and manufactured the first “Top It Cake Shield,” which has holes cut out for the candles, yet still covers the cake protecting it from saliva and germs.The shields start at $4.99 and come in different sizes. They’re set to launch online Sept. 15.
Neither the men’s nor the women’s team finished in the top 10 at this year’s ACC Outdoor Track and Field Championships, but two of Syracuse’s top runners summited the podium one final time.Following Thursday night’s win in the 10k, senior Iliass Aouani won the men’s 5k with a time of 14:00.38. Senior Paige Stoner won the women’s 5k as well, following her own gold medal performance in the steeplechase the day before. This was Stoner’s fifth and final individual ACC title for the Orange.

Senior Richard Floyd also reached the podium for the Orange on Saturday, winning bronze in the men’s 110m hurdles. Chevis Armstead, also a senior, finished seventh in the same event. In other races of note, junior Joe Dragon placed ninth in the men’s 5k and sophomore Nathan Henderson finished 11th in the men’s 1500m.
