A week before the Reichenbach fall, Sherlock was planning on baking a cake secretly for John for his birthday, apparently as clumsy as he was with kitchen appliances, he hurt himself by a hot stove and was found out by John. John never suspected anything on what Sherlock wanted to do at that time, he think Sherlock was just doing another crazy experiment of his, so he just treated the wound and Sherlock never attempt to bake a cake again after that.
Until after a month after Sherlock died, John finally came back to 221b Baker Street, tried to cleaned up all the mess Sherlock did in the fridge, till then he found out a hidden cake behind the decapitated head. There’s a note on top of it…
“Happy birthday John -SH”
(obviously I didn’t know what’s Watson’s birthday date)
