Sweet William’s birthday cake was topped with a pure beeswax candle from Big Dipper Wax Works. You can order number candles and traditional birthday candles directly from Big Dipper’s site, or from ecomom.
We avoid paraffin candles because they release toxic benzene and toluene when burned. Paraffin candles are as dangerous to the lungs as secondhand cigarette smoke. Who would want them on their baby’s birthday cake?
Beeswax candles are a great alternative. Make sure they are 100% beeswax, not mixed with paraffin.
