Who needs candles when you can make your own edible fondant versions? These birthday candle cake decorations are really simple to make and would make any birthday cake or cupcake look extra special.
You could even personalise your candles with colour themes to match the party spread or you could write the birthday boy or girl’s name in edible pen on each candle.

Stick the circles together stacking them one on top of the other to build your candle. Alternate between white and pink to make a striped pattern. Secure each circle with a brush of water. Use about 20 circles per candle.
If you’d like the dots to be bigger, just cut again leaving the paste in the nozzle each time as you cut, push the paste out with a soft brush and roll into a tiny ball, sticking it onto the candle as you go. Victoria didn't use the water brush to glue the dots, as the paste was sticky enough already.
