Edible Pineapple Ring Candle

Behold! I bring you great tidings of caker joy!

Earlier in the week, I posted my Edible Cranberry Candle. It came out a little flaccid compared to Candle Salad. Problem was that a candle made of JELL-O just didn’t have the density to stand upright.

Then I got thinking.

My mom used to pour JELL-O into a can of pineapple rings and serve it with ham. I featured the pineapple ring recipe on Caker Cooking a few years back. A light bulb went off in my head. (Usually, when this happens, there’s only a brief flickering before the light goes dark.)

I took a can of pineapple rings and a packet of JELL-O and created a candle that’s solid enough to stand on its own. I should've been an architect.

If you want to make one, drain the juice from a can of pineapple rings, mix JELL-O with a cup of boiling water, pour into the can and let it set in the fridge. Just don’t forget to slip in a birthday candle to light it.

Just goes to show – all of life's problems really are solved in your own backyard.

    1. The only thing that could make this photo look more Christmasy is if there were bored relatives in the background.

  2. MAGNIFICENT!!!! I might make one of those. Do you think the recipe for Jello Shots would work or just flambé?

    1. I think you could pretty much do whatever you like with it. That's the wonder of JELL-O. It's nature's most versatile food.

    1. Whoever thought the word "genius" would ever appear on this blog? Miracles really do happen.
