Making the "Cupcake CANDLES"

I'd like to thank "Crafty Candles" for providing such a fun party and a perfect Candle Teacher!


1.  We began with the pouring of the hot wax into large cookie trays (there were certain safety rules - during this step the children kept their hands firmly clasped behind their backs)

2.  After a few minutes of cooling - the children were each given a large spoon with which to move & fluff up the cooling wax making it resemble frosting.

3.  A few minutes more and they were able to handle the wax fluff.  Each child was given a wax cupcake base that had previously been made by the store.  In this step the forming of the cupcake top begins - making sure that the wick is straight.

4.   Finally the toppings!  There were these pre-made realistic looking fruit pieces:  raspberries, cherries, strawberries, blueberries & blackberries - (they looked yummy!)
