Does your restaurant celebrate birthdays? Of course! However, when the cake or muffin comes and the candle is lit, what of the wax…especially if there are a lot of candles or if there is a long wait to extinguish the flames.
Well here is a ‘life saver’ of an idea to solve that problem; use Life Saver candies as candle holders on Birthday cakes and other celebration foods to catch the wax and keep your food more edible.
There is a cute story of how LifeSavers were created and this is one of those classic happy accidents. They came about in 1912 when Clarence Crane was looking for a candy to sell in the summer when chocolate was difficult to store. He concieved of a hard mint and engaged a pill manufacturer to make them for him. They found that the candies were easier to make if they were donut shaped and thus the candy and name Lifesavers was born.
