With candle making, there are hardly any limits. You can
replicate lots of things with your creativity. Here are some
delicious 'Cupcakes' that look very, very inviting.
Complete with chopped crayon bits for nuts and decorations,
many people will mistake them for edible, freshly-baked,
icing-topped cupcakes coming from your kitchen!
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
2. Melt Wax, mix a dark or earthy colored dye for the muffin
base. We have used brown, but you can experiment. They are not
real cakes after all!
3. Pour melted wax into the prepared 'molds'. Allow to cool
and set. You can use a wick at this point. We have have not used
one because I made these 'cupcakes' just as a show-piece.
4. Meanwhile, prepare the 'frosting'. Melt wax and dye it a
soft, creamy color. We used used a pale, earthy brown again, but
pinks, creams, blues, greens, yellows, peaches etc. look great
for the icing. Be creative with your color combinations.
5. Cool the melted wax till you see a thin skin forming on it.
Whip it with a whisk till it gets frothy. Quickly, spoon the
froth over the cupcake. If the wax solidifies before you are able
to spoon enough froth, repeat the melting, cooling and whipping
6. While the frosting is still warm, sprinkle pieces of old

Designs in New Ways
How many of you are always looking for new ways to use your
embroidery designs - always, or never? If never, you are
overlooking wonderful opportunities! Do you optimize the
use of every design? Do you routinely review your library
of designs to see if you can combine motifs from one set
with another? Have you noticed how embroidery design styles
have changed over the past few years? Give those old motifs
a new look by using the designs that you got way back when,
again! Add new motifs under, or around, them to create a
whole new look! My last big project, a wind jacket back, is
a good example of what anyone can do with a little time and
imagination! With fall already upon us, I wanted something
tropical in my wardrobe as it's still every where in
ready-to-wear & home dec. The colors are just as
exciting as leaves turning colors.
