I have tried the rolled sheets of Bee's wax and I guess I didn't roll it tight enough... It wouldn't burn right....... I LOVE the cookie cutter candles ! The first one is awesome, I think I could just re-dip purchased pillers and do that one.. I also like the second cookie cutter one..... I have so many old brass cookie cutters and don't use them....

I came across this and wonder how it's done. Tammy? Jodi? ;)

I realize the beeswax is rolled, but wonder what's in the center? Just different colored beeswax? What holds the wick in?

looks like- at least to me-- that they took different colors of bees wax sheets and rolled them. They may have dipped the wick into different colored melted waxes to simulate the other sushi ingredients. And maybe perhaps dipping the wax wick would hold the wick still against the rolled beeswax....

Looks like to me the wick is just rolled up with the beeswax...it was prob cut a little longer than the beeswax was wide and rolled up...make sense..?!

I tried the cookie cutter candles.....Mine didn't really turn out that great lol


The 'handrolled' cinnamon buns at this site.... http://www.cakecandle.com/handroll.asp look to me like they were done with a mold....I had the very same mold :toothy:
I tried handrolling mine and it was very hard.The wax has to be a certain temp to keep it from falling apart...so MOST that say "handrolled" was actually done with a mold.
