Hi, I'm Josette Redwolf, and today we're in beautiful Key Largo, Florida at the Art Box. I'm here today to show you how to make realistic food scented candles. And today we're going to make a plate full of strawberry shortcake. Now you can get your strawberry shortcake embeds. This is what's called an embed and these are all embeds. You can get your strawberry shortcake embeds online. I have my zinc core wicks which are specially made for inch in diameter candles. Because we have a diameter here of three inches. We are going to place our wicks through each of the shortcakes. Now we are going to adorn these with beautiful strawberries. Because this is of course strawberry shortcake. So you put your strawberries all over. OK so we have this all adorned with our strawberry embeds. Now we're going to get our gel ready. We're going to get enough in here that we're just going to drizzle this and put those embeds, attach them down to the plate so that when you're picking it up it's not sliding everywhere. And this should be just about enough. Each time you have to eye it because with creative candles, there is no exact precise. It's a lot of trial and error. So now we are going to put our dye in. And this is the burgundy and it is pretty dark. So we're going to get one of our little swizzle sticks. You buy these at the dollar store. They're called skewers. And we're going to skewer the color in. And that is perfect. Look at that. That looks amazing and it smells so good. Look at that. Absolutely fantastic. Now we cut our wicks and you can put like a cookie crumble or cobbler crumble on the top if you want to. I like my strawberry shortcakes just like this. Sometimes I'll whip up some icing and put on to finish it off but otherwise that is perfect. And we're finished. And this is how to make realistic food scented candles.
