As far as birthdays go, it’s always been about the cake. Now, suddenly, it’s all about the candles.

These sweet-as-pie candle holders from The Small Object will turn any birthday cake into an eye-catching work of culinary art worthy of the biggest birthday cheers, even the wonkiest homemade one.

So whether you need to distract from a less-than-perfect coat of icing, or whether your baking skills are exemplary and these cuties just make you smile, we’re thinking they might make a rather distinctive addition to your party supplies drawer.

Made from wood and hand-painted with the cutest expressions, the holders fit standard birthday candles and have a sturdy pick on the bottom to make sure they don’t topple headfirst into your Swiss meringue buttercream.

Celebration candles cost £10.95 each for the cupcake cutie head versions (top) or £18.75 each for the kid-shaped variety (below) from Little Baby Company, plus shipping. A candle is kindly included with each holder. We say hip-hip-hooray to that!
