I had a client call today and ask if I could put sparklers on their wedding cake. They said that they saw it on Whose Wedding is it Anyway.

Does anybody know anything about this, and where would you get the sparklers?

Thanks for the hlep.

as fireworks -- are they even legal in your state?

if they are....

they DO leave a residue....that is INedible....

that would mean fondant that could be stripped off before serving the cake.

What about sparkling birthday candles? Country Kitchen sells them, they are 9" long.

Out of curiosity, I googled "cake sparklers" and surprisingly there were many results, including sites selling sparklers they claim are safe to go on cakes. Check it out...maybe you'll get lucky & find something.

There are some great birthday cake sparklers out there. I got some at Party City for my son's b-day and was pleasantly surprised. They even come in different colors.

Thanks for the help. I did google them and was surprised to find them also. From the sounds of it they will leave a mess behind. I told them to also contact the venue to see if they are even aloud.

There are certainly wedding cake sparklers that are food safe. If you're concerned about residue, you can angle the sparklers to the side or use a piece of plastic to with holes for the cake sparklers to protect the wedding cake. Here's some examples of what I'm talking about:

BTW, sparklers are considered "novelties", not fireworks. They are legal in nearly every state, but do check your local laws.
