Minecraft: How to Light a Candle

How to light candles in Minecraft In the Minecraft 1.17 Update, which was published in June 2017, candles were made available in the Sandbox Game. Although the Bedrock Edition received the 1.17 update as well, some items such as candles and potted Azaleas were not available until 1.17.10. It’s now time to discover what candles can be used for.

As a means to brighten dark environments, the first caves and rocks update includes candles. While you could use torches alone to brighten caves, candles add a special touch that is hard to match. We believe candles have more uses than torches. They can also be used to decorate birthday cakes to make a warm memory.

In case you weren’t aware, sticking a large flaming stick in a cake is not a good idea. These Minecraft candles will light up any occasion, whether you want to decorate a cake or make a cave feel magical. Here’s how to do it.

Bedrock Edition allows you to be dramatic by allowing you light a torch with a sword that is enchanted.

Each candle once lit emits three light levels, which can be increased to twelve if there are four of them. A cake that is not already baked can only have one candle. The candle will fall to the ground once the cake is gone. Water can be used to extinguish candles that have been lit. Too much water will cause the candles become waterlogged and stop you from lighting them.
