Just wondering whether anyone has ever covered a wax candle in fondant, so the wick can still be lit... thought this would be a very cute idea, as long as I don't catch anything on fire. Second part of the question would then be... would sugar glue stick to the wax, or any other ideas?

Thanks again!

Ive seen people stick a tea light into a candle holder they've made from fondant .. but never what you said -
I would think the heat would just melt the fondant and cause it to go limp - or the flame would go out when it burns down to fondant level -
Hmmm I dunno - interesting concept though - I'm interested in what others might say!!
Good Luck!

Please be very careful. I did a seven tier wedding cake with candles spiralling on the outside and the sugar work caught fire. It burnt fast and hot. My husband tried to put it out and got a huge blister on his hand.

I haven't done fondant over wax candles, but I made these using candle wicks from the craft store and candy clay. Kept the wicks long and the burn time short - worked great!
