Bundt pans are the key to this fun, easy outdoor project.
Martha Stewart Living, Volume 45 December/January 1996/1997
Pack snow into pans. To release, tap bottom of pan firmly. If the snow doesn't come out in 1 piece, repeat, letting the filled pan sit outside for 30 minutes to harden; then release.
Trim the wick of a candle to 1/4 inch, so the flame stays small. Secure candle on a flat surface, such as a step, by packing snow around it. Stack 3 snow forms over candle. Lightly spritz pillar with water; everything will freeze in place.
Light the candle before guests arrive.
Nonstick or tinned-steel Bundt pans, in various shapes and sizes
