|This candle really is a lot of fun - and people that have never seen it before will just be totally amazed!Initially it looks like a big plastic flower, with the petals closed. Using the three plastic prongs at the bottom, you stick the candle into the cake. (You only need one candle per cake). At this point the candle gives very little away!Using a match, you light the little stick that is provided, and you use this to touch the centre of the candle.Firstly, the candle lights like a small firework. This can be done indoors, and does not harm the cake. Secondly, the whole flower opens, revealing 8 petals, each of which now has a little lighted candle on it. Everyone goes 'wow' when this happens!Third, once the oohs and aahs have subsided, you will hear that the Magic Candle is now playing Happy Birthday!Although there are eight petals and eight little candles, we think you could use it for a birthday of any age, not just an 8 year old!You can only use this candle once. THE CANDLE MUST NOT BE USED BY CHILDREN. ADULT SUPERVISION IS REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES.
