About She Loves Cake

I love cake. Cookies. Anything bakery related. Home made bread. Waffles. Cinnamon rolls... you name it! Unfortunately, in early 2003 I found out I was severely allergic to wheat. As if that wasn't bad enough, that was quickly followed by testing positive for celiac disease. And back in 2004, that meant a life without anything even remotely delicious. My days of enjoying delicious bakery items were over.

As a result of this, I sniff food. Breads, pastries, cakes, cookies, anything I cannot eat that someone else is enjoying, I sniff it. That smell is enough to satisfy the desire I have for sweet and delicious things and allows me to live a happy life, bereft of ooey gooey cinnamon rolls. Naturally, this rapidly turned into an obsession with candles and melts. If I couldn't eat it, I was darn well going to enjoy the smell of it! Eventually I discovered indie wax vendors and my obsession became a monster.

Until I woke up one day and realized - it was time to make my own. I've been dabbling in candles and tarts (along with cold process soap and other b&b items) since 1999 so the wax world is nothing new to me. And here we are today! I have gone full unicorn in case you didn't notice. I love unicorns. They are fluffy, cute, girly, just everything glittery and sparkly. Basically the exact opposite of who I am as a person! This allows me to have fun with names, scents, and branding... and that is 100% me.

About my wax

I use a parasoy blend for all my wax creations. This is a firmer wax that is much hardier for shipping in warmer months so you don't need to worry about your melts arriving in puddle form. I recommend a 2 week cure time from pour date for best results. Of course, the longer you let it sit, the stronger it gets!

My wax is colored primarily with micas. I like the softer, pastel colors this results in when dried and the mesmerizing, shimmering pools of liquid metal when it's melting. Some come with glitter and sprinkles, others are unadorned.

For the absolute best results, I recommend the Glade wax melter, 20 watt version. This can be found on Amazon or eBay if you cannot find it locally. This is the older version of the warmer - not the new one that is currently in Walmart and other retailers. Drop me a note if you want assistance in finding a warmer.
