Posted on March 27, 2020November 2, 2022 by Customer Service — 2 CommentsWhipped Wax: Icing On Top of the Cake You may be familiar with the technique of whipping wax. We’ve shared it with you before in our “How to Make a Snowball Candle” post. If you’re not familiar, the whipped wax technique is a great way to liven up any simple candle. We’ve seen people use this technique for a wide variety of candle projects, from cakes and cupcakes to foaming beverage candles, like the hot cocoa project below! It may take a little practice to perfect this technique. Whipped wax cools very quickly, so if you don’t work fast enough it can become unmanageable. Also, it is a VERY messy process, so be sure you have your old clothes on and are working on a surface that’s easy to clean! The Hot Cocoa Candle *Project and photo credit goes to:Spoonful.com What you need: 2 3/4 cups soy wax Pouring container 1/3 of a 3/4 ounce cube of brown wax dye 6 ounce glass mug (made for hot beverages) or a mason jar 9 inch tall prewaxed wire wick with clip How to Make It Melt 1 3/4 cups of soy wax in a pouring container or heatproof measuring cup in the microwave according to the package directions. While the wax melts, chop the dye into smaller pieces and stir it in. Pour the wax into the mug and insert the wick To Make the Whipped Cream: Melt the remaining wax and let it cool until it’s opaque, about 5 minutes. Whip the wax with a form until it begins to form frothy peaks. If the wax is too thin, wait a few minutes and try again. If it thickens too quickly you will need to remelt it. Scoop the whipped wax onto the cocoa. Let it cool, then trim the wick. You can use the whipped wax technique for a variety of other candle projects! It will certainly be the icing on top of the cake!

I would like to make frosting (whipped wax) for my parasoy candles. When I first made candles I used 464 soy but I’ve changed to igi6006 for a stronger scent throw. But I wanted to know how can I make frosting (whipped wax) for my parasoy candles when creating strawberry shortcake candles with whipped icing on top . When I made soy candles, I only saw that soy mixed with pillar wax was used or recommended to make the frosting. Is there a method or wax that can be added on top of my para soy candles? Can I use my parasoy wax to make the frosting ? Or is there a wax that I can use with my parasoy to make frosting? Please advise…. Reply Aleycha December 1, 2021 I love the whipped candles! But I am having trouble with them stay lit because there is so much wax. Should I put extra wicks so they don’t burn out from the excess wax?
