Description

Three packages of of birthday cake candleholders in the form of pink flowers. Flowers appear to be made of icing and are formed around a piece of silver wire that is straight on one end, to stick into the cake, and bent to form a cylinder on the other, to hold the candle. The flower is formed around the wire cylinder. The candleholders are stored in the original white cardboard packaging, six candleholders per package. The packaging is printed with blue lettering and design. Clear cellophane once covered the flowers, now torn and partially attached due to use. Some of the candleholders retain cake residue and one has been partially melted.
