When you first hear of ice cream candles you really expect to see real tasty ice cream decorated with candles, like a birthday cake. Well, this is only partly true: ice cream candles look delicious, yet you won’t know what they taste like since they are actually made of wax. Highly appreciated particularly in cafeterias, sweets shops and at home, these kind of candles are the touch of color you may be missing. One thing is for sure, they are very likely to open the appetite for sweets. The creation of such funny candles brought not only bright spirits to our homes, but made room for a whole industry to develop.
Color and popularity
Given the huge popularity of ice cream as dessert, we can only imagine the huge success of ice cream candles. The most popular forms used are chocolate ice cream candles, banana split candles, waffle cups or sundaes. They all look so very real that unless you saw the wick or knew that you’re watching a candle you’d definitely feel like tucking in. Very often, the windows of sweet shops are decorated with such nice candles given the fact that the actual ice cream would eventually melt. They are of a huge impact at home too, as they add the drop of fun your home may need.
Usually, a regular ice cream candle is made of soy wax and gel wax to simulate the ?sauce?. Every single part of an ice cream candle is very scented to suggest the real flavor of ice cream. Imagine how your mouth may water only at the sight of it, not to mention the aroma! One thing is for sure, these candles are sheer delight, and they are not too expensive either. One costs between $8 or $13, depending on the type you purchase. Moreover, the glass that remains after the candles burn down can be reused, in any way you want.
Very often ice cream candles can be chosen as gifts for friends or family you want to make smile. No wonder they are the joy of kids, but if you’re giving them as a gift, you’d better have some real ice cream with you too, since at a certain level it is quiet difficult to make the difference between the real ice cream and the ice cream candle. Go on, have fun!
