Google marks its 14th birthday with an animated doodle

The brainy Google that answers almost all our queries has turned 14 years old today. To mark the 14th birthday of Google, the company has baked a chocolate cake doodle with "Google" inscribed on it.

The company has posted the animated chocolate cake doodle on the homepage, which will remain there throughout the day. The cake has 14 candles on it, and all are in Google colours - green, yellow, blue and red.

As you open the homepage, the cake appears and in no time gets wrapped in the Google-coloured sheet lying underneath the cake.

Interestingly, the selection of September 27 as Google's birthday seems to be a one of convenience than the actual date when the company was founded. Google celebrated September 7 (the day when the company was incorporated) as its birthday till 2005.

In 2005 Google changed the date to September 27 to make it coincide with the announcement of the record number of pages that the search engine was indexing.

It's has been 14 years since 1998 when two Stanford university students, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, got together to form a company that would change the face of the Internet, for ever.

In 2011, when Google turned 13, Google doodled for itself a photograph that showed Google's 13th birthday celebrations. It had a cake on a table with 13 candles on it, and Google logo sat around the table in party hats while gifts and baloons added to the celebratory mood.

Google doodles have gained immense popularity over the past few years and the Google team has put out commemorative doodles on events ranging from news events, civic milestones, birthdays, death anniversaries and important dates in history.
