looks to me like they're just small round cakes stacked up and covered in fondant usually and then have melted colored choc. to match the candle color to "drip" down the sides. Make sure and carve or cut out (small cookie cutter is useful) the center of the top cake layer to allow for a real tea light candle to be placed inside. HTH
