Fondant Candles

A very bright idea! Fondant candles with sparkling star flames.


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy


Step 1

Tint 2 oz. fondant rose, blue, green, yellow and violet. Also tint 1 oz. of fondant portions in a darker shade of rose, blue green and violet.

Step 2

For flames, roll out dark yellow fondant 1/8 in. thick; cut 5 stars using medium Cut-Out. Lightly brush stars with water and sprinkle with Cake Sparkles; let dry on cornstarch-dusted board.

Step 3

For wicks, attach 1 1/4 in. long pieces of licorice to backs of stars with fondant thinned down with water (fondant adhesive); let dry.

Step 4

For candles, cut 4 dowel rods to 5 in. long and 1 to 6 in. long. Roll out light rose, blue, green, violet fondant and cut strips 2 1/2 x 5 or 6 in. long (length of dowel rod), lightly brush fondant with damp brush. Wrap strips around dowel rods (use green for 6 in. candle); trim off excess and smooth with fingers.

Step 5

For spiral trim, roll out dark shaded fondant 1/8 in. thick; cut 1/4 x 8 in. strips. Attach strips around dowel rods with damp brush; let dry. Insert a matching-color fondant ball at top of each dowel rod. Insert wicks.

Step 6

Insert wicks.
