I mean come on... How cute is this candle?! This sweet little souffle dessert candle looks as good as it smells with it's delicious cake scent. While height and volume will vary, this candle measures 2 - 3 inches tall depending on icing height, and is approximately 3-5 oz.
We know that burning a candle that looks as sweet as this one may take some contemplating. Personally we think going ahead and getting one to admire and another to burn is always a brilliant option (wink, wink) :)
When and if you are ready to light that delicious looking candle, you need to know a few things first:
Step 1 - Always keep your dessert candle out of reach from children, animals and even your super curious friends and family. They smell amazing but definitely do not taste the same. In case the smell gets you too excited just remember that candles are NOT edible.
Step 2 - Since the wax of the candle towers above the container, make sure before burning to set your candle on a heat safe dish or saucer to catch the wax overflow.
Step 3 - Trim your wick to approximately a 1/2 inch. The only way for a wonderful even burn is to properly trim your wick before each burn so if you see any wild flames blow your candle out, trim the wick again then relight.
Step 4 - Let it burn and wait for that pretty wax icing to melt down all around the base of your cupcake jar and on to your heat safe plate. Sure it may melt a bit like a free flowing icing waterfall but just like an actual dessert, messy often translates to enjoying yourself. Eventually you'll have a smooth even melt pool within your jar.
Step 5 - Enjoy your beautiful and fragrant candle! You definitely deserve it.
