  • safety aspect of wax tarts

    having spent most of day looking around here, which has been brill.

    i have noticed candles made to look like cakes with cream...

    How do u get the wick into a candle once you have added the beaten "cream" wax?
    do you work it around the wick which is already in the earlier poured wax?
    or is there another way?

    All help would be appreciated
    thankyou x

    Hi Julie,

    I make the cupcake candles. What I do is make up a base first of solid wax. I pour this into a cup cake base, let it set a bit, when it has set push wick with a sustainer into the wax. I let this set then whip the wax with a fork, when it is set I use the fork to put the whipped wax onto the base this way you can feed the wick through the prongs of the fork to get the wax all round the wick.

    HTH.

        Am I right that you can only whip paraffin wax?

        I tried whipping soy wax - but to no avail!

          i tried it the other night with soy and it worked a treat, but i had to be very quick once it came off the heat as it set very fast..after 3 failed attempts i managed to get it right
