Here's a twist on an original popular drink - a candle that looks and smells like a warm and rich hazelnut latte. Give this project a try and create an inviting coffeehouse atmosphere right in your own home.
Allow the wax to cool until the wax around the edge of the pouring pot begins to solidify. Using a spoon or metal spatula, stir the wax so that it begins to thicken and look like whip cream.
STEP 4: ADD WHIPPED WAX TO PIPING BAG
Spoon the soft wax into a plastic storage bag and slit the corner. Tip: Place the piping bag inside a large glass to hold it upright while filling with wax.
STEP 5: ADD DECORATIVE WHIPPED WAX
Pipe the whipped wax to decorate the hazelnut candle, creating a "whipped cream" formation on the top of the Hazelnut Coffee candle.
STEP 6: ADDITIONAL DECORATION
If desired, sprinkle some dry, ground coffee on the white wax for additional decoration.
STEP 7: TRIM WICK & ADD SAFETY LABEL
Trim the wick and attach a warning label on the bottom of each candle, and remember to follow all candle burning safety rules. For easier clean up, wipe out the empty pouring pitchers with alcohol and some paper toweling while the pots are still warm.
IGI 4630 wax can also be used for this project in place of Golden Brands 464 soy wax using the same measurements with two adjustments. (1) For IGI 4630 wax, pour the wax into the tumblers at 160 degrees instead of 135 degrees. Using IGI 4630 removes the possibility of the candle "frosting." (2) Use LX 22 wick instead of ECO 14 wick.
If you have leftover wax you can make tealights using a TL 15 wick in each cup. We had enough to make three.
Finished color can vary from the final photo. If you want to know what the finished color will be we recommend making wax samples to be sure it is the color you want.
