21 Perfectly Palatable Luminaries

From Chocolate Candle Cakes to Liquor Lighting

— May 13, 2012 — Art & Design
Candles are an easy and generally affordable way to bring some mood into any space. Add some palatable luminaries into the mix and you've got something that looks, smells and may even taste good.

Candles, because of their inherently malleable nature, are an awesome playground for creative minds. Many amazing, gross and supremely elegant lighting creations have been developed over the years, the most intriguing among them tend to be food-centered. Often taking advantage of the melting abilities or scent aspect of candles, designers of these yummy (or not so yummy) tapers are often unbridled when it comes to their edible inspirations.

Everything from desserts to bacon has served as an influence to these palatable luminaries, making for a definitely delicious outcome.
