Candles for Birthday Cakes
Whether you prefer full sized tortes or novelty cupcakes, they are not birthday cakes without the candles.
In olden-days candles were originally placed on cakes to send birthday wishes up to God. In modern tradition, candles representing each year of a person’s life are placed and blown-out after a birthday song. If the birthday person makes a wish and extinguishes all the candles with one breath, it is believed their wishes will be realised.
In some traditions, extra candles are placed to indicate upcoming years. Others prefer to have multiple cupcakes each with a tapered candle or number candle representing age. In this way, everyone gets to join in the fun of blowing out a candle and making a wish for the birthday celebrant.
In any case, don’t forget the candles when buying birthday cakes or cupcakes from The Cheesecake Shop.
We have a great range of tapered and novelty candles and selected decorations to help celebrate in style. Choose from silver rimmed numbers, coloured star pick candles, or multicoloured packs of candy striped candles with holders.
