Sparklers UK FAQs
Is it safe to use sparklers on cakes?
Yes! Sparklers can also be used on birthday cakes, providing a real talking point for parties, no matter the age of the birthday girl or boy! Simply arrange the sparkler candles on the cake, and then at the right time carefully light them and watch the room stop in awe at the marvellous sparkling spectacle. Sparklers for cakes can come in a range of shapes and sizes too including letters, numbers, hearts, stars, and standard stick-shapes.
How are sparklers made?
Sparklers are composed of a thin steel wire or bamboo splint that has been dipped in a pyrotechnic substance thickly coating about 2/3 of the wire.
Do sparklers make a loud noise or explode?
It never explodes, like a firecracker, which is designed to explode quickly after being lit. The reason for this is that the main ingredients of a sparkler are an oxidizer, a fuel, a combustible binder, and either iron, steel, aluminium, or another kind of metal powder. In terms of noise, sparklers are very quiet – you will often hear a soft sizzle while it burns.
