READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Wild Thyme Flour

Just an idea I came up with. Hope you like it! had no cake to put it on for the pictures. You need as many strawberries as you need candles because you will be using the middle part for the flame. Choose bananas that are as straight as possible.

What a wonderful idea Wild Thyme Flour! It's healthy, lovely to look at, and kids will love it. Thanks for sharing this creative idea- I shall make it soon!


  1. Cut each banana into 2 candle sticks. Do not do this step too far ahead or the banana will brown.
  2. Slice the sides of the strawberry so that you are left with a thick middle piece.
  3. Use a toothpick to fix the strawberry onto the banana.
