Step 1: First, we need to prepare our orange slices. Measure out the Pillar of Bliss and melt it using the double boiler method. Once it is melted, add 2 drops of orange dye to it and 3 grams Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. Stir.
Step 2: Pour the wax into the orange slice molds and allow them time to set up. We will come back to these at the end.
Step 3: Now, we can prepare our candle jar with the wicks. Heat up the hot glue gun and a hot glue stick. Glue the bottoms of your candle wicks and press down on them in the center of your candle jar so that they adhere to the glass. Set it to the side until we need it.
Step 4: Next, we will make the bottom layer crust portion of the candle. Weigh out 100 grams of Joy Wax and melt it down. Then, add Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil and colorant. We used 1 drop of brown candle dye and dipped a toothpick into the yellow candle dye for a small amount. Stir to incorporate.
Step 5: Carefully, pour the mixture evenly into your candle jar, while keeping the wicks centered and straight. Allow this layer to set up completely.
Step 6: While you are waiting, you can prepare the confetti for the top of the candle. Get a teaspoon of Beeswax White Pastilles and add them to a Ziploc Bag. Dip a toothpick into the orange spectrum liquid candle dye and gently apply it to the beeswax. Seal the bag. Using your fingers, spread the colorant evenly until the beeswax is completely colored. Set these aside for now.
Step 7: Once the crust is set up, begin making the white fluff portion of the candle. Weigh out 300 grams Joy Wax and melt it using the double boiler method once again. After it melts, add in 30 grams of Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. Stir.
Step 8: Allow the wax to cool off for a couple of minutes, then get your electric hand mixer ready. Whip the wax on and off until it starts looking like creamy frosting. This may take a little bit of time. Place it aside for the next step.
Step 9: At this point, you can pop the orange slices out of the molds from earlier. Place them against the sides in the inside of the jar, all the way around. We used 7 slices. You will want them to be visible after the whipped topping is applied.
Step 10: Now, take the whipped wax and spoon it onto the layer of crust and around the orange slices. Fluff the topping until you are satisfied with the look. Remember to keep the wicks centered and straight during the process.
Step 11: Finally, place the last orange slice on top of the candle, pressing it into the whipped wax slightly. Then, sprinkle the orange confetti pieces on the top of the whipped topping. Trim the wicks as desired.
We hope you enjoy your Orange Juice Cake Candle!
