I just offered to make a cake for one of my favourite buddies for his b-day FRIDAY and now I find myself in a mess. What would really set this cake off is lighting. Now I figured I could but florescent lights to go in the cake. I went on line and shipping alone is $53, not including the price of the lights, which by the way you have to buy in sm bulks of 12's. It can get here my thursday if I hurray.
My question to you lovely ladies, would any of you know where I can buy them locally? I know it's different in every state/country. I live in ontario/canada. Anyone????thank-you

I did a cake where I stuck lights in it. I used little battery lights that go for 8 hours ... got them at the party store- i used a pocket of fondant around it so it would act a plug that I could pull out with the light and keep the non food safe thing away from the cake somewhat.
What kind of lights are you looking for and what kind of cake....?

Hi there, I'm actually looking for some LED tea light lights. I'm making a dj's music board. It would be sooooo cool if I can find these lights here locally. Their buttons on this board that light up, and would love to give this effect to it. thanks for answeringicon_smile.gif

I would try a party store... or any place like that has bridal supplies. Another option if you have patience is the dollarama and buy light up toys or ornaments ( xmas had tons of stuff ) and using something like an exacto knife or hot knife remove the excess stuff around the light packs and just use the bit you have around the battery pack...

good luck!

Someone once told me to search for "seed lights" and that is one option of what to use.

Just read another post about LED lights in cakes and they said they bought theirs at Walmart. You could check some hobby/train stores too.

Just read more into this. There are little twist on LED lights you can buy that are added to floral bouquets and balloons. I think they are called "balloon LED light" or something like that. Apparently they are sold in the wedding/floral aisles of Michaels, Joann, or whatever craft store you have up there. I'll be looking for them here today as well icon_smile.gif
