Step 1:

Get an aluminum foil and an empty paper towel cardboard roll. Cover the roll with aluminum foil.

Step 2:

Get one piece of soft white bread and place it on a chopping board. Flatten it using a rolling pin, then cut it into a rectangular piece measuring 2.8 inches in height. You can cut them depending on the size you prefer. It’s better to vary the size of the candles. Roll the flattened bread into the cardboard covered in aluminum foil. Secure the ends with a toothpick. Do the same for the remaining pieces.

Step 3:

Line a baking tray with parchment paper, then place the rolled bread. Bake in the oven at 392 degrees F for about 15 minutes. Once done, remove from the roll and take off the toothpicks.

Step 4:

Cover the outer part of the baked bread with ricotta cheese, then coat it with shredded coconut. Do the same for the remaining pieces.

Step 5:

Slice the bell pepper and remove the white part inside. Use a teardrop-shaped cutter to cut the bell pepper.

Step 6:

On a beautiful flat plate, squeeze some ricotta cheese and place the edible candles. Fill each one with ricotta cheese using a piping bag. You can also put walnuts if preferred. After that, place a toothpick on the end of the teardrop-shaped bell pepper and place each one on top to look like a flame. Garnish with radish sprouts.
