    Sharing with classmates encouraged -- using a knife to do so -- not quite.

    Police say a northern New Jersey man added more than eggs and flour to a birthday cake and nearly set his house on fire.

    Maywood Police Chief David Pegg tells the Record newspaper that police and firefighters responded to a house fire Sunday and were met by an angry man who demanded they leave.

    Pegg says the man was trying to make the cake burst into flames with the added ingredients of lighter fluid and gasoline. He was apparently trying to tape the burning cake so he could post it on YouTube.

    The fire was contained to the kitchen table and authorities say the incident didn't appear to be criminal.
