    I'd say they use sparkle candles (not actual sparklers). I made the same mistake myself. Can probably get them on-line if you search. They sell them in Ireland at Dunnes Stores. Not rating the dessert 'cause haven't tried it, just wanted to help out on the effect/presentation.

    I worked this station at RFC so a couple things... the caramel sauce, and the whipped cream is made fresh. The chocolate syrup is a fudge sauce, and the brownie IS store bought but it has caramel running through it. Sounds like a good home version though!

    This was awesome! A group of my friends went on a cruise together. While staying the night in the departure city of Galveston, TX, we went to the Rainforest Cafe & HAD to split this wonderful desert. Weeks later, when we had the "reunion meeting" at my house & everyone brought copies of their pictures to hand out. We made all the most loved recipes we had on the trip. This was the desert. We included a lit sparkler on the top - not a good idea inside - but it was wonderful & brought back great memories. Thanks for posting this recipe!!

    A show on the food network used cinnamon and lit it on fire for a sparkler effect. They were using both brandy and cinnamon on a flaming dessert but you may be able to light a cinnamon stick. I think it would be a good idea to do a test run in a safe area first.

    Right On! Just missing the thunderstorm. :) One note, I used a firework sparkler, and there seemed to be some silver residue that came out off the lit sparkler and was visible on the whipped cream! I removed the top layer, and no one complained of tummy aches later, but the RFC may use some special sparklers.
