Birthday candles are exciting when you’re a kid, and manage to loose some of their appeal as we get older. They look pretty and it never hurts to have an opportunity to make a wish, but they’re just not all that useful. These Light Bites are, however, and they are exciting enough to get be interested in keeping those candles on my birthday cakes!
Light Bites are forks with candle holders built into the tops, so you can plunge a few forks into a cake and, once the candles are blown out, you can dig in right away. The candles are made of plastic and can be washed and reused as many times as you like. They come in a set of 12, with 12 candles included. The candles are fairly standard birthday candles and are easily replaced when they burn down. These forks are perfect for birthday parties because you will never have to worry about who’s bringing the silverware (I’ve been to more than one party where cake ended up being eaten with our fingers) to serve it. A dozen forks is perfect for most layer cakes, and having no more than a dozen candles available is perfect if you don’t want to take the chance that someone is going to put the “real” number of candles on your cake.
