Step 1: Prepare the gingerbread embeds- Using the double boiler method discussed in one of our candle making classes, melt 40 grams of Pillar of Bliss to 195 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Once the wax is in a liquid state, add 1 toothpick tip brown and 1 toothpick tip orange spectrum candle dyes. Mix well.
Step 3: Next, allow the temperature of the wax to drop to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Then add 4 grams of Snickerdoodle Latte Fragrance Oil. Mix well.
Step 4: When the wax reaches 175 degrees Fahrenheit, pour it into (1) gingerbread man mold. Allow the wax to fully set up.
Step 5: Prepare the Joy Wax: Using the double boiler method again, weigh out and melt 500 grams of Joy Wax to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 6: Once all the wax has melted, allow the temperature of the wax to drop to 170 degrees Fahrenheit, then add 50 grams of Snickerdoodle Latte Fragrance Oil. Stir well.
Step 7: Using your paper bowl, weigh out 100 grams of scented and melted joy wax. Set aside. To the remaining joy wax add 3 drops Brown Spectrum Candle Dye. Mix well.
Step 8: Once the temperature of the brown joy wax has dropped to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, pour a small amount into your glass cafe cup. Turn your heat source on low, and place remaining brown wax back into the heat source.
Step 9: Once you notice the wax in your cafe cup has started to set up, place 1 CD wick centered into your cup. Now allow this layer to completely set up.
Step 10: When the gingerbread man is completely set up, carefully remove the wax from the mold. Set aside.
Step 11: Once the original brown layer in your cafe cup has set up, carefully pour the remaining melted brown wax into your cafe cup. You will want to stop pouring the wax about 1" from the brim of the cup. This will allow ample space for the wax froth. Allow this to partially set up.
Step 12: Prepare the wax whipped topping: Using a whisk, begin to whip the cooled and uncolored joy wax in the paper bowl. You will notice as air is incorporated that the wax will become fluffy. Once the wax has cooled, thickened, and been whipped, take a small paint brush and gently paint the white facial features on your gingerbread man. Allow this to harden.
Step 13: Now, carefully place the gingerbread man into your cafe cup. Once he is situated, allow all of the wax in the cafe cup to completely set up. Then, using a spoon, begin scooping the rest of the whipped frosting into your cafe cup. Be cautious around your wick. Continue this until the cup is filled.
Step 14: Allow the candle to completely harden and trim your wick.
Your Gingerbread Latte Candle is now ready for use. Enjoy!
