Whipped Wax: Icing On Top of the Cake

by Chandler 20. June 2013 17:24

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

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

  1. 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.
  2. Pour the wax into the mug and insert the wiick.

To make the whipped cream:

  1. Melt the remaining wax and let it cool until it's opaque, about 5 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
