Whipped Wax

Many beautiful candle creations can be achieved with whipped wax. Toppings of whipped cream and frosting can be added to candles giving them that authentic look, just like real desserts. Color and fragrance can be added to the wax too.
Melted liquid wax is literally hand whipped with a whisk or fork when it cools until it reaches the right creamy texture. It gets tricky though and you must work fast because as the wax hardens it will lose it's creamy texture.

With the right color and fragrance, wonderful candles can be made. They look so good, you won't want to light them. They make great gifts and table favors for parties, especially birthday parties.
