This is such an amazing birthday cake idea . . . in my humble opinion! Sometimes when it comes to decorating cake or cupcakes, you need to make sure that you are precise and perfect, but with an idea like this one, you can be as messy, aka artistic, as you want to be!
I searched all over town for all of the candles that I ended up putting on this cake. Whatever you can find, however crazy looking, buy them and put them on this cake! It was tricky to find enough of the purple candles, as for some reason that colour isn’t included in some of the candle packs. If you’re in Canada, I found the candles I used in the video at Bulk Barn and Target (RIP).
