Baking and Frosting

How to Bake a Wedding Cake:
2x 6" round cake pans
2x 8" round cake pans
2x 10" round cake pans
Cake boards (6", 8", 12")
Vanilla cake batter (or any flavour that you prefer)
Vanilla buttercream
Procedure:
Preheat oven to 350F.
Grease and line each pan with parchment, or wax paper.
The 6" pans will require 2 cups of batter each.
The 8" pans will require 3.5 cups of batter each.
The 10" pans will require 6 cups of batter each.
Bake the 6" pans in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
Bake the 8" pans in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
Bake the 10" pans in the oven for 55-60 minutes.
Allow each to cool completely on a wire rack before proceeding to coat in buttercream.
Attach one 6" cake layer to the 6" cake board, using a swipe of buttercream to "glue" it to the board.
Cover the top of the cake with a layer of buttercream, and then place the second 6" layer on top.
Cover the whole cake in a crumb coat (thin layer) of buttercream.
Repeat for the 8" and 10" cakes.
When the crumb coat layer has crusted, you can apply the second and final layers of buttercream.
Smooth the buttercream using a metal spatula.

Are jackpot candles worth it?
For the last few years, jackpot candles have been one of the most popular party trends. But are they actually worth it? If you're having a dinner party, will you really be able to use up all of those extra candles? And how much do jackpot candles cost anyway? Check out this blog post for answers to all your burning questions. 1. Why jackpot candles are worth it Jackpot candles are worth it because they’re affordable, last a long time, and can be used to make a whole room smell good. If you’re someone who can’t afford designer candles, scented candles are a good option. They’re a great way to fill up a room with a specific scent. They also make a great gift — if you can find a scented candle in the right size that matches the color of your existing decorations. How Do You Use Jackpot Lights? They can be used to create an intimate atmosphere. If you’re hosting a dinner party, sprinkling a few scented candles on your dinner table is a far better way to create an “nerdy but fun” atmosphere, rooted in the basic human need to connect and be social. So is it worth sacrificing your current candle collection for better bang for your buck? Let’s take a look at what people are saying: “I purchased 40-60 scent- and scent- candles to add to the house’s scent. I love them! The smell is subtle, yet noticeable. They smell like a spring evening with cinnamon and fruity-flavored fruits.” — Mollie R. “It takes a moment to get used to it, but once you do, your home/office smell is amazing. Sherri made the best batch I have yet!” — Carol S. “I use raised pool lights. I am writing my master’s thesis now and it smells great as I am writing.” — Tim G. “They start out the room smelling of candles but after awhile they can also smell like organic fruits and flowers.” — Brian P. “My candles from 8/$10. The only issue I had was jar they fell out and they weren't replaceable.” — Karen W. “The candles I’ve used so far, seemed high priced but their results have been excellent.” — Tim S. That said, like any party trend, there are tradeoffs if you want a great scented candle that lasts a long time. 2. How much do jackpot candles cost? Most jackpot candles cost $30-$50, depending on the size. Just make sure to read the fine print. Some candles have a $30 shipping fee if you don’t live in the US, or you’ll be charged an international shipping fee, which can add a few dollars to the total cost. The biggest benefit of using jackpot candles is that they can last up to six months, as long as they’re stored in a cool, dark place. If you purchase a small batch of candles for a dinner party, you may be able to use up all of them before the remainder run out. The biggest danger of using candles with high lume is the danger of spillage. Jackpot candles work by filling your home with a yellow light. The more of these you use, the more likely you are to drift off to sleep. Since manufacturers recommend using them only within a nine-foot cone, you should avoid placing more than two candles in one room. The problem with reading this article now is that most jackpot candles are discontinued after a limited time. It’s the same with a lot of other holiday party products. If you’re looking to maximize the value of your firework or traditional decoration purchases, do your research ahead of time. While most of these are relatively inexpensive, it’s always a good idea to avoid purchasing anything that has expiration dates. If buying a few candles is something that interests you this year, jackpot candles might be your best option. But make sure to take advantage of the great deals they’re currently offering if you want to save the best for last. Now go make the best out of your gift giving this year. 3. How many candles do you get in a jackpot candle? If you’re just starting out with jackpot candles, you might be wondering how many candles you get in a jackpot candle. You might also wonder how many candles you get in a jackpot candle that’s a certain size. I think we all understand what a miniature jackpot candle looks like. These are awful, and they cost a pretty penny to make, even if they look pretty. You probably have several little mini-sized candles tucked away. How many candles do you get in this ‘small’ candle? A “small” candle is really just that — it has less wax burned into it than other sizes. So, if there are 6 mini-sized or smaller candles, you could get 60 candles in this one. Or, if you had 9 mini-sized or smaller candles, you would get 103 candles. But of course, the larger the candle, the more wax (we’ll explain this later), so the bigger the candle, the more candles you get in total. A “medium” candle is just that: it has a little bit more wax in it than other sizes. Here, for example, are two “medium” candles — you get 85 in total, but only 60 of those are “medium” size. So, why are they called “medium” instead of “small”? Because they pack a lot more wax in there than some of the smaller candles. Let’s say you have 3 “medium” candles. You’ll have 153 total candles in your “small” candle. Medium-sized candles usually have around 12–15 to 18 candles in them, but well, “medium” isn’t always the size that comes with the most wax burned into it and therefore the most candles. If you have a 4th “medium” candle, you’ll get 183 total. Now we’re back to “small” vs “medium” — then the 4th candle would probably be “small” again because it would only have 4–6 candles in it. 4. How much wax is in a jackpot candle? Jackpot Candles are made from soy wax, which is a renewable resource. Soy wax is a healthier alternative to paraffin and beeswax candles because it’s free of toxins and is made from a renewable resource. The soy beans used to make soy wax are grown in the USA and are non-GMO and pesticide-free. For the last several years, the wax production process has remained pretty much the same. The candle factory produces the wax by adding small amounts of colored pigments to soy oil mixed with sand and beads. The resulting candle is then infused with essential oils, molecules that act as herbal medicine. Before you purchase a batch of candles, the factory will prepare some samples to give away to select customers (green, yellow, pink, blue, red, etc.). The point of this is to test out the colors for each batch of candles to make sure they all look the same. Once the test runs are over, the samples go to the general public. 5. Can you really use up all of those extra candles? The great thing about candles is that you can make them last longer if you know how to burn them properly. Here are a few tips: 1) Never leave your candle burning unattended. 2) Always trim your wicks. 3) Use glass containers to protect your wick from wick-eating insects. 4) Don’t be afraid to use clear containers, or you might lose all of those slimy green strands instead. 5) When you use a clear container, make sure you keep it away from other items like cutlery, plates, glasses, and silverware. 6) Lit candles To ensure your candle burns evenly without getting too hot, place it in a bowl filled with equal volumes of water and non-sparkling salt. The less water in the bowl, the less chance your candle has of getting too hot. If you use clear or plastic containers, fill them with the needed amount of water. (Glass containers work well for this.) Place the bowl over the candle, close the lid tightly and let the candle sit for a few minutes, until the salt settles. From time to time, flip the bowl upside down and pour more water in to make the water boil. Once the fluid starts to boil, gently lower the bowl over the candle and open it once the water has boiled away. It’s best if the surface of the water is perfectly even with no bubbles. Wait a few minutes for the water to cool before opening the cover. Then, place the container with the candle into the refrigerator to cool to room temperature. (A little dropping on the surface of the water isn’t a bad thing.) 6. Why important jewelry candles for gift any occasion Candles gifts are so popular for any occasions, such as Birthday, Anniversary, Valentines Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas or any other occasions. Candles gift is a great idea for a gift giving. It is not only can add beauty to your decoration at home, but also could make your room smells so good.

How to make a ring jewelry candle | Jewelry In Candles Rings
If you're looking for a way to make your home smell great, give jewelry candles a shot. These candles are made with real jewelry and actually burn down like regular candles. While they cost more than the regular run-of-the-mill scented candles you can buy at the store, they sure have an impressive visual effect that makes them worth it. This post takes us through all the steps involved in making your own jewelry candle and gives tips on how to get really creative with it. 1. What you'll need to make a jewelry candle To make a jewelry candle you'll need: candle wicks, votive holders, jewelry findings, jewelry, and essential oils (optional). To make a jewelry candle, you’ll need ingredients you can find at a jewelry store. The general ingredients are: Cotton (linen preferred, but hemp works as well) Eggs (colored varieties are greatest), Pellets or brick, Chaff Distilled white vinegar Freshly ground black pepper Oil These are the basic tools you’ll need to prepare the candles. It is recommended to invest in a candle maker for the process, as they make it a lot easier when applying the wax and other products to the candle. You can buy candles directly from jewelry stores or directly from cosmetic supply companies such as chemhalt — they make candle containers, handles, holders, and the like. Wire cutters, a small piece of cardboard, a tin can, and a knife are useful tools for cutting up candles for candles. To get started, take a wick from your jewelry store. For this jewelry candle, I used an ivory candle wick from Sally Hansen. Craft wax will usually work, but it’s probably a good idea to try wax candles if you choose to do so. Pellets and bricks should cost around $10 each, but if you can find them used, they’re probably not too expensive. You can also find candles pre-sterilized in jewelry stores. Next, you’ll need to find votive holders. I suggest purchasing gray votive holders because they’re easier to see your candle in the light. Next, you’ll need to find jewelry. You can buy jewelry at the jewelry from unrivaled candles, but it’s going to have to be colored. If you have a lot of pink jewelry, you can really use the candles to lighten up the room and make it feel more festive. 2. How to make a ring-shaped jewelry candle Ring-shaped candles are a neat way to make a candle that looks like jewelry. If you want to make one, you’ll need a candle mold, which you can get from unrivaled candles. It will give you the opportunity to make variations of the same ring shape that will fit nicely inside your candle mold. The jewelry candles we made had practical uses. One I made was a sort of travel mug that took up very little room. Another was meant to give off a warm ambiance in my office for cooking. First, you’ll need to empty your jewelry drawer. Then you’ll need clean, dry, and free of oils (unflavored) jewelry screws. And finally, you’ll need something that looks nice (preferably cotton). When used correctly, the jewelry screws will hold ceramic rods in jewelry molds and make the candle bigger and therefore better smelling. One way to clean your screw heads is with a cotton bud soaked in pink Master Cleaner (it comes in a can). You can also use a toothbrush dipped in it, but wire brush will also cause the jewelry to become powdery and you won’t be able to see the patterns that you’re creating or stain your fingers. Next, you’ll need to make your ring. As stated above, you want your beads to be wearable, not precious. These links will give you ideas for what kind of beads to use. You should be able to fit around 30–40 beads in your candle. Aside from choosing a distance between beads and ring, you may want to experiment with sewing or gluing the beads together. If you’re squirreling away in your jewelry drawer as little as I do, you’re probably bored of clicking pictures of plexiglass boxes and rings that look almost identical. To make your beads go in more easily, you can also use a special ring punch to punch them out. You’ll also need something to fill your candle with. 3. How to make a necklace-shaped jewelry candle If you're looking for a project to do with your daughter, or just for yourself, making a necklace-shaped candle is a fun project that can also be made in a variety of colors and styles. You can find all the materials you'll need at a craft store, and the project itself is pretty simple. You can use metal or plastic beads ornaments, ordinary household items, or jewelry. Beads can be purchased already made or otherwise perfected, and things can be salvaged that you may have discarded, like old locket pins, metal fish scales, ornaments from party stores, or even jewelry cut down to the right size or in the appropriate vintage settings.  The instructions for making your necklace candle are fairly flexible, and you can find extensive step-by-step instructions on the unrivaled candles website. The general steps are to cut the beads to size or to buy smaller versions of the beads you want.  You can make the candle factory scent or any of the pleasant scents like bay leaf or sandalwood. I opted for trying out a variety of real pieces of jewelry to scent. If you intend to just use a basic plastic beads jewelry box, you can find the instructions for making a jewelry box here. To start, lily of the valley scented candles are the way to go. Previously, I used beeswax candles with mixed results, so I was pleasantly surprised when I used a box of crystal jewelry beads. They are nice because they magnify the scent from your finger, creating an entire floral scent that goes well with the candles. You could also use real ball-peen hammers, moon balls, or stars as the candle-holder. 4. Making candles from other pieces of jewelry Ten years ago, I wanted to make a candle out of a ring from my jewelry collection. I thought it would be a fun project and a great way to re-purpose my old jewelry. I tried it and it worked. The result was a beautiful, personalized candle. I decided to make the same candle for my home to make it work better. I wanted it to last longer, look nicer, and smell like real jewelry. I didn’t want it to smell like replacement jewelry. I also didn’t want it to burn down like regular candles do, so I skipped the aluminum ring and went with sterling silver instead. To get started, I cut rings exactly the size and shape I wanted my candle to have! Then I decided on the design I wanted and the design I bought. I used hot glue to secure it to the metal ring. Before using the hot glue, I applied two coats of the wax of my choice. This includes Irish Moss, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel, and Loire Valley Rose. The wax flavor depends on the project or what you’re using it for. Now the fun part. If you have some jewelry already that you don’t need anymore, you can keep it or sell it. After all, you’re not trying to start a business here! I bought rings that repaired a hole I had in my finger. I also bought new earrings just because I thought they would fit better and look nicer in the candle. I sold my earrings after I made my jewelry candle. I used these rings as templates when cutting the rings for the wax candle. I taped them to the metal ring to keep track of where I was cutting. To attach the wax to the rings, I tried to be as accurate as I could. After applying the wax, I screwed in the metal bases to the rings and pressed the small screws into the top of the rings to secure. 5. Tips for making the best jewelry candles Making candles can be a fun and creative craft project. It’s also a great way to repurpose old jewelry you don’t wear anymore. Just melt down old necklaces and earrings, and then pour the molten metal into a mold to create a decorative candle you can burn and enjoy. The first thing you’ll need for making jewelry candle is jewelry. You can find jewelry melts easily online. you can search for a jewelry candle to see what is currently trending. There are tons of options, from traditional pieces like bandanas and medal charms to more modern pieces like earrings and bracelets. Once you have your metal, it’s time to find a gift idea for your loved one. There are so many ways you can show love for someone, from repairing an old broken engagement ring to simply buying them a beautifully-crafted jewelry candle that smells like their heart. What’s a way to give someone priceless as a surprise? While jewelry is an appropriate gift for many occasions, on Valentine’s Day, it’s especially sweet. You can use your existing jewelry collection to give the person a gift that will truly remind them of the special day. It will also make the person feel special. From necklaces to earrings, you can make dozens of look-alike gift items using jewelry melting wax. Fiddle with the sizing of the melted wax to get the perfect look and safety. Keep the gift wrapped in the original packaging and an unopened jewelry candle inside the gift box. Glue it to a small, square scrap of cardboard or envelope, and you’ve got a card they can use to proudly display their lovely gift to someone special. Some people make their jewelry candle permanent for extra love and care. It pretty much ensures the person who receives it is reminded of the special occasion from the moment they receive it.
