Is it possible to draw on the energy of someone else's birthday to do a spell for them? Could you basically use the day as their essence and then use that to strengthen the spell?

I don't see why not. As long as you believe that birthdays hold some sort of power.

I mean it was the day that you were born. The day that your energy first was made. that would leave some sort of inprint, right?

I don't think i've ever thought about it,the tradition of blowing out the candles on a cake while makeing a wish has some roots in candle magick,i think.

Indeed...

People used to be worried that they would be attacked by spirits on the anniversary of their birth, and so clustered with family and friends in order to keep themselves safe. This quasi-religious aspect to a birthday "celebration" continues.

We have birthday cakes because either the Greeks made round cakes to venerate Artemis, goddess of the moon, or because the Germans made a special bread (which might be called Geburtstagorten and might not) in the shape of the baby Jesus' swadding clothes. The candles were an extension of these cultures. Gibbons stated in 1986 that the Greeks put candles on their round cakes to make them glow like the moon, hoping to gain Artemis' special favour. Alternatively, the candles were intended to carry the birthday wishes up to God (or the gods utilizing candle magick depending on belief systems), along with the smoke. Some Germans even today place a large candle in the centre of a birthday cake to symbolise the "light of life" (from Corwin, 1986).

Adding a number of candles that correspond with years is a fairly obvious extension of the general candles-on-cakes principle, once you're into it anyway. Blowing them out is, I suspect, just done because it's fun to blow out candles, now that the religious aspect has faded away somewhat. Besides, if you don't blow them out then you can't inflict on people those trick candles that relight, which would be the end of a venerable birthday tradition.

Well you would have to focus on the energy of the person. Think of them, the emotions they give you, and then use that energy to start the spell. You would have to concentrate so hard on them that you can basically channel their essence and use the energy that their birth gave the universe. As you go on, think of the energy in the day. The energy that you felt. And then say something about how you tie the energy of their birth and that day to the energy you would want to use for the spell along with the personal energy you put into the spell. (Is this even right? Maybe this is wrong, but it makes sense in my mind.)
