INGREDIENTS

230 grams Pillar of Bliss

140 grams Joy Wax

Pouring Pot

Thermometer

To start, weigh and melt 230 grams of our Pillar of Bliss Wax, using the double boiler method.  You will want to melt the wax to 195 degrees.  The wax will take a bit to melt.  While it melts, let’s go ahead and prepare our molds.  You are going to need 3 of the Silicone Heart Cupcake Molds and 3 of our votive wick pins.  Place one wick pin in the center of each silicone mold.

Add a bit of your red color block to the wax.  We found that we only needed a couple shavings to get a light pink for our cupcake candle base.

Now, let’s add our fragrance.  You will need to stir into your wax 23 grams of Cinnamon Yum Yums scent.  Make sure you stir it very well so the fragrance mixes thoroughly with the wax.

Next we can go ahead and start filling the molds with the melted wax.  Be sure to fill each mold to the top.

Let’s go ahead and start preparing our frosting.  Use a double boiler to melt 140 grams of our wonderful Joy Wax.  Allow it to melt to 200 degrees, then allow the temperature to drop to 175 degrees, and add 14 grams of our Cinnamon Yums Yums Fragrance Oil.  Be sure to stir that fragrance oil in very well.

Add-Frosting

Now comes the fun part!  Remove the silcone heart cupcake mold and…LETS DECORATE!!!!  Add sprinkles to the top of each heart candle and one heart embed to each Valentines Day Cupcake Candle.  We will need to continuously stir, stir, stir that wax until it cools and looks like frosting. Once you have a nice and thick frosting, start placing it on top of your heart cupcake base.  You want you frosting go up to the height of the wick pin.  Just be careful not to cover the wick pin completely.

Finally, just let them setup.  Then, remove the wick pins and thread one CD 10 to each candle.  Trim the wicks back before you burn them.  You need them to be about ¼ inch.

We hope you loved making the Valentines Day Cupcake Candle as much as we did!  Enjoy your Valentine’s Day and your fabulously scented cinnamon candle!  Make sure you check back for more fragrance fun!  Also, check our recipe box that is packed full of recipes and classes!
