Behold what will truly go down in history as one of the greatest feats of food engineering man has ever created. If this photo is to be believed, chef Stéphane Bureaux has successfully created the world's first edible chocolate candle.
When it's delivered to the table, instead of immediately blowing it out and making a wish, you simply let the heat from the flame do its thing, turning the candle into a gooey molten core for the chocolate cake. It doesn't matter what's inside those boxes of wrapped gifts, nothing will ever top this when your birthday rolls around. [Dessert Girl via Notcot]
