How To Safely Blow Out Your Birthday Candles

Lauren Wax

Meet the party solution for the new normal: The Top It Cake Shield. Top It is a patent-pending, doctor-invented cake shield created to protect party goers of all ages from spreading germs over cakes while blowing out candles. Believe it or not, it was pretty gross to blow out your candles pre-covid.

Did you know by blowing out birthday candles you can increase the amount of germs you're spreading by 1400%?!? That's pretty disgusting. I heard that stat and had to order one for my birthday! Also if you go to Top It's FAQ page, they have a study to back-up these numbers.

With a thoughtfully designed shield & side panels, Top It not only protects your cake from all angles, but also allows you to showcase its Insta-worthy decor. Plus, you can fit almost all candle shapes and sizes (even large numbered ones!) in the shield’s proprietary track system - so you can light’em up, blow’em out, & have peace of mind

Celebs like Ryan Seacrest, Chelsea Handler, Billy Bush, Ariel Charnas and Keltie Knight have all used a Top It for their past birthdays. I felt a little bit of a celeb when my birthday video featuring the Top It Cake Shield went viral on TikTok. You can watch it here!

The Top It's range in price ($4.99-$14.99) depending on size and you can order it on or
