Ok, I'll admit, this is sort of an elementary magic trick, however it will take some practice getting the silverware to balance.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:
1 ROUND* Toothpick
1 Metal** Fork
1 Metal** Spoon
1 Glass*** Cup

*Has to be round because a square toothpick is too easy to balance with
**These have to be metal because it is heavier than plastic
***As with silverware this only works with heavier materials
Use a match to light the end of the toothpick over the glass. Fire will go out when it reaches glass. Now silverware is balanced on end of toothpick.
Cool. Thanks!
Totally awesome. Only took me ten seconds!
Awesomely done!
