Well, I've really got no clue. I could do with a clue or three.

To consolidate:
It is something that you might use once a year (on the same date every year, though this would perhaps be more for younger people), and you may need to blow across the top of it on this occasion. Can you think of an annual occasion where something like this might be the case? This thing has a top coating which is what you can see. It is organic, though has never lived.

Does this help?

Close - what would the candle be on? I think that this should be the last step!

I can't find any good pics that are just right, and its dark outside so it might be a bit hard to see what you're guessing.  :D :D

Blimey - cut to the chase, why don't you? Well, this part is not edible in itself, but was part of something that was.

Yes - I had a meeting that took all day. Project development for a new large scientific consortium. All very hush-hush.....

Well, I think that you're quite close enough without any further clues.



It's a great big nut thing!

It looks like some sort of tarpaulin sitting on frozen water.

The blue stuff looks like some sort of mat - a bit like the ones that we used to use in PE at school.

Yes, they are mats for protection.
