Sparklers For Cupcakes

Cupcakes have taken America by storm, popping up in specialty shops on every corner you see.  They are becoming the dessert of choice at birthday parties, weddings, and special events across the globe. What goes great with cupcakes? OK fine, yes, milk goes good with cupcakes, but sparklers for cupcakes – now that’s great!

Go All-Out With Sparklers for Cupcakes

If you’re planning a party and you want to make it extra-special, think outside the box and order a few large packs of Sparklers to add a lot of excitement and fun. Your guests will be blown away by the extra bit of attention you have put into the planning, and you will be happy knowing that you have created a memorable and unique event for everyone.

Are you thinking of serving cupcakes at your wedding or maybe a baby shower? Do you own a bakery or restaurant? Are you looking for a way to sell more cupcakes? Your cupcakes will seem even more amazing just because of the beautiful and of course, sparkly presentation.

How Long Do Cupcake Sparklers Last?

The #10 sparklers work best for desserts such as cupcakes. Each Sparkler, once lit, lasts about 40 seconds each. Buying large economy packs will ensure that your guests won’t run out of Sparklers and that the party you are planning will be non-stop fun. Plus, sparklers do not go bad.  Buy sparklers in bulk, use them for this year’s birthday, and for next year’s as well.

Add A Personal Touch

Why not take it a step further and add a personalized tag to each individual sparkler, perhaps with a special quote or a simple thank you. You could also give your guests party favors by handing them out at the end of the night for them to use on another special night of their own. If you are throwing a party, there’s really no end to what you can do to make it over-the-top!

Make It Special

Of course, you want to make the party special for the guest-of-honor (even if that person is you!) but you also want to make it special for each and every guest that comes. Make sure you have enough Sparklers for everyone including yourself so you can take part in the festivities. Light a sparkler and enjoy a cupcake – you deserve it!

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.

Wedding sparklers vs. Traditional Sparklers

As you start planning your sparkler send off, you may begin to feel overwhelmed by the amount of sparkler choices. When you start your research regarding grand exit sparklers, start by learning the differences between wedding sparklers vs traditional sparklers.

Bamboo stick vs. Metal Stick

July 4th sparklers or traditional sparklers are made with wood or bamboo sticks. Unfortunately, these sparklers create a lot of smoke and put off some ash and soot. Using traditional sparklers leaves the chance for you wedding photographs to be ruined by excess smoke. There is also the possibility of ash damaging your wedding dress, rented tuxedos and table linens. Wedding sparklers on the other hand, are made with steel wire sticks which eliminates these issues. Wedding sparklers are considered low smoke sparklers. Your pictures will not be compromised when using the correct wedding sparklers.

#36 Metal Stick Wedding sparkler


Colorful sparks vs. Gold sparks.

While color sparklers (green, blue, pink ect. ) may seem festive, using these sparklers for your wedding is a bad idea. Just like the bamboo sticks, the chemicals that are used to create the pretty colors also create a lot of smoke. Gold wedding sparklers are not only elegant, but the chemicals that create the gold sparks do not put off a lot of smoke.

#20 Wedding sparklers

Small sparklers vs. Long sparklers.

This depends on what your plans for the sparklers are and how many guests you are expecting. The smallest sparkler we carry is the #8. They are 7.5 inches long and burn for 20 seconds. These would make for fun party favors but would not work for a sparklers send off. The burn time is too short. Your wedding photographer would not have time to capture amazing photos before all of the sparklers have finished sparkling. The same is true for the slightly longer #10 sparklers. Although, the #10 sparklers work well for dessert and wedding cake enhancements. For weddings with 100 guests, the #20 sparklers are a good, inexpensive choice. The are 17.5 inches long and burn for 75 seconds. The #36 sparklers are the longest wedding sparkler. They are almost 3 feet tall and burn for 3 minutes. For weddings with 100 or more guests, these sparklers work best. Your guests can light their sparklers and your photographer will have plenty of time to capture great photos as you make your grand exit.

When purchasing your wedding sparklers, go through the wedding sparklers vs traditional sparklers checklist-Metal stick, gold sparks and long burn time. Keeping these three things in mind, will ensure your sparkler sendoff goes off just how you envisioned. Y
