Handmade Cupcake Candles

Can you smell the delicious scents from these eye catching cupcake candles that I purchased from the CandleConfectionery on Etsy?  (You can check out their store by clicking here.)   I wish you could!   I ordered five of these scrumptious cupcake candles in the scents and decorations of:  Strawberry Shortcake (photo below), Gingerbread (w/ tiny gingerbread man), Sugar Cookie (w/ candy sprinkles), Pumpkin Spice (w/ tiny pumpkins), and Caramel Apple (w/ caramels and apple slice).  My free gift (that comes with each order) was two Lemon Ice tarts, whose scent I have fallen in love with!! :)




The cupcakes came wrapped in a clear bag labeled with the scent and tied with a ribbon or piece of cloth.  All ready to be given as a gift!  The Candle Confectionery also has large jar, mug, glass bowl, and scoop candles that are made to resemble your favorite desserts.  If you are looking for scent filled tart melts, they have those too.  I can honestly tell you that my front room, where they are kept, smells like a wonderful bakery!!  Mmmmmm.   I would gladly unwrap them and arrange them on one of my footed dessert plates, but this batch is for a special gift.  The lucky birthday girl will not have to worry about me doing the wrapping! ;)




The Candle Confectionery is currently running 25% off, when a customer enters "deathbychocolate" in the coupon code box.   Please keep in mind, the Confectionery takes 7 to 10 days to create an order (specified in the listing).  (Mine shipped at 11 days but was well worth the wait!)  This "made to order" creating will push me to get my gifts ordered early . 

I look forward to sharing more of my Etsy purchases and favorite shops in the future.  It is a wonderful community of true crafts people.  Nothing compares to handmade! :)

Hello Jody... I just love browsing through their store. I need to get some to keep for my own house. I am going to miss them when they are gone!
