Flaming Wax Garnish

I was eating at ACME Food & Beverage Co. tonight and they served my beloved lemon pudding cake in the most unusual manner. It had this wax stick that had been placed orthogonal to the dessert itself and at the tip was a small flame. I can only imagine that they thought it might aid my photography. Thankfully, the smoke alarms were not set off when I extinguished the flame, although from my dining experiences, very few customers notice such things so I would not have been unduly embarrassed. In any case, I applaud the dramatic presentation and I suspect it will be all the rage soon.
