Foodie Candles by Paula - GUEST POST

Teacake candle photographed above.

I thought you might like to see the lovely candles that Paula has been making with our moulds.

My name is Paula. (GUEST POSTER) and I am a mum of 4. I run my business called Cracking Creations from my home in Leicester.

Since November I have turned my hand to making scented candles and have produced a range of realistic looking cup cakes and tarts along with a selection of drinks candles. Every candle is unique as they are all individually hand made, something not often found in this era of mass production. These have been well received by shops and public alike and the business is keeping me very busy.

I am always on the lookout for new shapes to conjure with which is what brought me to the wonderful moulds supplied from siliconemoulds.com. The moulds are easy to use and it has to be said that the resulting candles are fast becoming my best sellers at the candle parties I run. These moulds are perfect - easy to use, easy release etc etc. I have just bought some proper candle moulds and one split the second time I used it, the others are so hard to release from that after a week of trying I have 1 saleable candle and a bin full of rubber moulds...not good !

More recently I have been asked to produce a range of candle designs as wedding favours for a wedding organizer as the flexibility offered from a colour matching point of view is invaluable to the brides to be. For more information on my candles you can visit my website on http://www.crackingcreations.co.uk/ (currently being rebuilt) or they will available for purchase from http://www.giftwrappedandgorgeous.co.uk/ as of May 2010.
