Many of you seemed to really enjoy the mini challenge that I did a few weeks back so I decided to go on and do another one. This week with it being summer I thought it would be fun to incorporate something from the great outdoors (i.e. grass,wood,smoke,dirt) and put it into something you normally wouldn’t. My challenge this week is to create a cake blend that would include my choice of an outdoor element which I have decided would be grass.
I had mentioned in an earlier post that I had been craving cake for days so once I hit up the grocery store for some much needed house essentials, it was cake time! Looking through Wal-Mart’s selection of cake goodness is when these lovelies showed up. Blueberry iced cupcakes filled with a blueberry filling ? Yes please! This inspired me for my cake blend this week to try and recreate it in wax.
My grass ingredient will come from the known Sam’s Shire from Super Tarts: Fresh Cut Grass and Watermelon Rock Candy. Don’t let the rock candy fool you, the grass note is very astringent on cold and will be difficult to hide.
Vanilla Cookie Crunch– Better Homes & Gardens
Blueberry- Tiffany Candles
Marshmallow Puff– Wilma’s Handmade
Coconut Marshmallow Noel– Sniff My Tarts
Mmmhm! This actually makes me think of a blueberry cupcake! First off as this began melting it came off to the nose as more of a blueberry muffin type. After about 15-20 minutes of melting the marshmallow and coconut noel kicked in and helped transform this into more of a sweet, cakey note. The grass comes through as more of a bitterness that adds to the tartness of the blueberry so it somehow comes together and worked out well for this blend. It melted as a medium thrower in my bedroom warmer for several hours.
What about you, what would you choose to mix up with this challenge?
This week I challenge my friend Avalon128 on Instagram to the challenge! She also has a YouTube Channel (Link in her biofeed!) where she does wax hauls and reviews of what she has been melting so check her out!
Anyone else who would like to do this challenge, I would love to see those wacky blends! Remember it can be any kind of cake blend you can think of! If you do, tag me in your post on Instagram in the comments so I can see (@themeltdown15)!
Until Next Melt,
