This couldn’t be easier, and is so much fun, but remember to be careful around flames and especially with hot wax around little ones. 

1) Break a large unscented church candle into pieces and on a very low heat, melt the candle down into wax. Add in flavours. We used vanilla essence and a red food dye for colour. Give it a good stir. 

2) Lay out your silicon moulds. You can also use old jam jars. Place wooden skewers along the centre line of each, and place a wick in the middle, securing with a drop of hot wax. The skewer will keep it from falling over.

3) Pour the wax into the moulds and set aside to cool. Pop out once set if using moulds or if made in jars, you can decorate with ribbons etc.

Nanny Ashley

There are two great pleasures in my life. Seeing children learn and grow, and a passion for good food. After picking up a handful of NVQ's relating to childcare, I went on to work for a leading Worcester nursery. Three years later I became a nanny and continued to develop my love for cooking and childcare. Along with a regular food column for Baby London Magazine, my goal is to make cooking for children and with children, simple, fun and exciting. Image credit: Helene Sandberg from Little London
