A Candle Right On Top Of The Cake?

So I have a client who wants a baptism cake that has gumpaste angels that surround a candle in the center of the cake (as if they're praying). Now I think that is a great idea but my only concern is wheather the candle would ruin the cake by melting the fondant underneath or even the gumpaste angels that surround it, since it will be lit for quite a while. And I'm talking about those little tea candles that come in little metal cups not the birthday cake ones. So do you think i should cover the candle with something or it wouldn't really affect the cake? Also, how do you think I should decorate the sides of the cake, since the angels on top won't be enough. Thanks A Lot!

Why don't you or they use one of those battery operated tea light candles I get them at the dollar store some times they come 3 in a pack and they say they last about 6 hrs HTH

This time of year they start to have them everywhere - stores stock them for Halloween. We use them in our jack-o-lanterns, and I have gotten them in craft stores, drugstores, and dollar stores. Good luck!
