Wedding sparklers and your wedding cake!

Wedding sparklers for wedding cakes are one of the most popular ways to incorporate sparklers into your wedding. Not only will your cake taste amazing but it will look amazing too. Your guests will ooh and ahhh as your wedding cake makes its way out. Candles are nice but if you’re looking for something to really WOW your guests and maybe less traditional, sparklers are the way to go!

What Type of Sparklers Should I use On My Wedding Cake?

The birthday cake sparklers (also known as bottle sparklers) would work well, they burn for 30-40 seconds, leaving time for the servers to light the sparklers and make a spectacular entrance. They are a low smoke sparkler and have a plastic point to place in the cake. Just as the name suggests, these can be used in your champagne or wine bottles as well.

The smaller party sparklers such as the #10 dessert sparklers would work as well.  They burn for about 35 seconds and are also considered a low smoke sparkler.

Wedding Sparklers for Wedding Cake

How Many Sparklers Do I Need?

We suggest using 4 wedding sparklers per cake. However, you may want to use more or less, depending on the size of your cake. But be careful! There can be too much of a good thing. Don’t overdo it with the wedding cake sparklers. Just a few sparklers will make for a flashy entrance.

Another great idea is placing a sparkler on each individual piece of cake. Let your guests in on the fun with their very own sparkly piece of cake!  Your guests may be inspired to use sparklers at their wedding or even birthday cakes too!

Let your baker know that you are planning on using sparklers on your wedding cake ahead of time.  This will allow them to decide on the perfect decorations for your cake.

Don’t forget to buy a few extra sparklers. Store the sparklers in a safe, dry place.  On your one year anniversary, put on a sparkler on the defrosted top tier of your wedding cake and relive all of the wedding night fun!

Make your wedding cake ceremony a real crowd-pleaser by adding beautiful wedding cake sparklers into the event. And don’t forget to take pictures! This will surely be a moment to remember.
