We will have 6000 candles on a single cake, which we plan on lighting with one match.
For those of you disbelievers, we already have the candles which we
have spent the last few weeks splitting the wicks apart into a 'V'
shape. When all the candles are cramped together on the cake we only
need to light one wick and the fire will spread.
See Figure 1.2b below
We've already tried this on a 100 candle test cake and it works wonderfully.
Even so, we have a spritzer bottle full of everclear in case it doesn't quite light.
Will it be edible?
Probably, but that's not important. We're going to try to make a two-layer cake so
we can just shave off the top layer which should be burnt and covered with wax.
Then again we set fire to a cake last year and we ate it just fine.
