Yum-Wick Makes Edible Birthday Candles

Posted on May 27, 2012

A company named Yum-Wick makes edible candles for birthdays and other celebrations. The candles are made from Belgian dark, milk or white chocolate. The candles are handmade in the company's New York factory.

The "wick" portion of the candle, which can be lit, is made with almond.

Yum-Wick was created by mother, pianist and actress Tara Wright. Yum-Wick says, "Pairing a solid chocolate shape with a flammable almond was the moment that sparked an idea that would re-create candles as we know it. She turned her kitchen into an official kosher commercial haven and eventually patented the idea."

She explains her edible candles in the following video.
