A Beautiful tealight, made from Juice Crystals and Duncan Hines Icing
- Pour 75g dry juice crystals into a sealable bowl. Drip 30 drops of water randomly over the top. Do not pour the water or the juice crystals will dissolve. I use a small turkey baster or craft bottle. Shake to coat the droplets. Smush with a spoon until fine, then cover and shake.
- Press the crystals at least ¼” thick into a mold. Press it in as hard as you can. Set it out to dry.
- The next day, carefully tap the top of the mold and squeeze it gently to release the crystal egg. Let it dry a few days more so it’s solid.
- Fill two sides of a large mold. Because there will be a lot of cutting involved, the sides should be pressed a little thicker, popped out the next day, then allowed to dry completely.
- Use a miniature screwdriver (scrubbed and sterilized) to cut. Keep your designs small and make sure there is a hole carved in the top of the egg so the flame won’t burn it.
- Put a little tea-light in the bottom. Seal the sides together. Decorate, nice to outline the holes.
- When you light it, don’t leave it for very long.
