Ingredients & Equipment

The ingredients you’ll need to make your own dessert candles depend on the type of dessert you’d like to emulate. Generally, you’ll want to keep the following items on hand:

  • Wax: The type of wax ultimately depends on the kind of candle you’re making and the fragrance you’d like to use. Soy, beeswax, and paraffin wax are all good choices.
  • Fragrance Oils: Fragrance oils will give your candles a delicious scent and help you replicate your chosen dessert.
  • Dyes: Dyes will give your candles the colour of your chosen dessert, making them look even more realistic.
  • Equipment: Making candles will require the use of equipment such as candle wicks, wick holders, pour pots, and other tools.


Making dessert candles is an easy and fun process. Here are the steps to follow when making your own candles:

  1. Melt the wax in the pour pot, using either a double boiler or a microwave.
  2. Stir in the fragrance oil.
  3. Pour the melted wax into the candle molds.
  4. Attach the wick to the bottom of the candle mold.
  5. Once the wax has cooled, remove the wax from the molds and trim the wick.
  6. Finally, you can decorate the candles with sprinkles, glitter, or any other decorations of your choice.


That’s it! You are now a master candle maker and can create delicious-smelling candles in your own home. Making dessert candles is a great way to express your creativity and have fun. With a few simple steps and ingredients, you can now make beautiful and unique candles that can make excellent gifts or home decorations.
