With candle making, there are
hardly any limits. You can replicate lots of things with your
creativity. Here are some delicious 'Muffins' that look very, very
inviting. I cannot recall the number of times I have used them to
play pranks on 'unsuspecting targets'...lol.
Complete with chopped crayon bits
for nuts and decorations, many people will mistake them for
edible, freshly-baked, icing-topped muffins coming from your
Candle Making Supplies (Wax, Dyes,
Boiler, Wicks etc.)
Paper Muffin Cups (2-3 for one candle)
Old Crayons (chopped into small pieces)
1.Place 2-3 paper cups into each
other for strength. Now, place them into individual muffin molds
or a muffin tray for a string base. Grease them lightly if you
wish, but it is not necessary.
2. Melt Wax, mix a dark or earthy
colored dye for the muffin base. I used brown, but you can
experiment. They are not real muffins after all!
3. Pour melted wax into the
prepared 'molds'. Allow to cool and set. You can use a wick at
this point. I have not used one because I made these 'muffins'
just as a show-piece.
4. Meanwhile, prepare the
'frosting'. Melt wax and dye it a soft, creamy color. I used a
pale, earthy brown again, but pinks, creams, blues, greens,
yellows, peaches etc. look great for the icing. Be creative with your color
5. Cool the melted wax till you see
a thin skin forming on it. Whip it with a whisk till it gets
frothy. Quickly, spoon the froth over the muffin. If the wax
solidifies before you are able to spoon enough froth, repeat the
melting, cooling and whipping process.
6. While the frosting is still
warm, sprinkle pieces of old crayons.
