2 Candles will be left out with Steffi.
Since she didn't blow off other 8 candles which would have melted at the end.

10 candles left assuming she didn't blow hard enough to topple the candle itself (If the end means right after the moment she blew the 2 candles. Otherwise if it means after all the flames die down then only 2 candles remain at the end.) !
