Lotus Candles are simply amazing. Instead of lighting up a bunch of plain old candles one by one, you just stick one (or two, or three!) Lotus Candles in the middle of your cake, or on any flat surface, and apply a match or lighter to the center of the candle.
What happens next will delight you and everyone else: a shower of sparks shoots upwards, the candle petals open up like a flower, and all the candles on each of the petals light up (8 candles total!).
Then the candles start rotating AND start playing the Happy Birthday tune! You really have to see and hear it to believe it!
