How to Make Wax Cupcakes
Put a creative spin on tarts or votives by making cupcakes. Change the fragrances and colors of the icing or the cake for upcoming birthdays or holidays.
- Pillar or Votive Wax
- Fragrance Oil
- Candle Dye
- Pouring Pot
- UV Stabilizer (Optional)
- Cupcake Pan
- Cupcake Papers
- Plastic Fork
- Butcher Paper or Newspaper
- Paper Towels
- Metal Spoon or Stir Stick
Cover your work area with butcher paper or newspaper. Spills or drips are most times unavoidable, and clean up is much easier if you don’t have to clean wax off of your work surface.
Step 1 – Prepare wax
Step 2 – Pour the wax
If the cupcakes are being wicked, the wicks can be glued to the cupcake paper or set in after the wax has been poured. Straighten the wicks occassionally, or use wick bars to help hold them in place.
Allow them to cool completely, and they are ready for icing.
Step 3 – Whip the wax
Continue to whip the wax until it starts to set up. (The sides of the pouring pot will need to be scraped occassionally.) The wax is ready to add to the cupcakes when you can "stack" the wax on itself, and it retains it's shape.
Do not let it set up too much or the icing will not stick to the cupcake.
Step 4 - Ice the cupcakes
Make sure to let the cupcakes cool completely before removing them from the pan.
