Muffin Candle

| October 2008

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'

Complete with chopped crayon bits for nuts and decorations, many people will mistake them for edible, freshly-baked, icing-topped muffins coming from your kitchen!

Materials Needed:
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.
