The tradition of placing candles on birthday cakes dates back to 1746 in Germany, where Count Ludwig von Zinzendorf celebrated his birthday with a lavish cake adorned with candles corresponding to his age. This custom spread throughout Germany and Europe, reaching America by the 1850s. Initially resisted, the trend eventually caught on, evolving into the familiar tradition of singing, making wishes, and blowing out candles.

Modern birthday candles are crafted from non-toxic paraffin wax, safe to drip onto frosting. Our collection also features fun variations like trick candles that relight and numeral-shaped candles, perfect for simplifying cake decoration. Enhance your birthday festivities with our stunning selection of birthday candles!

Today, the number of candles still signifies age while the act of blowing them out symbolizes letting go of the past year and making a wish or intention for the new year ahead. Brighten up your loved one’s birthday with quality candles that make the cake, and the celebration, shine
