Christmas Bundt Cake Candle Holder Directions

Step 1

Mix the amount of resin you will need. I mixed 8 ounces for this project. You will add white and brown pigment until you get the desired cake batter color.

Step 2

Pour the mixed resin into the mold cavities. Use a lighter to pop the bubbles and let the resin cure for a minimum of 12 hours.

Step 3

Once cured, remove the mini bundt cakes from the mold and use dimensional fabric paint to make the frosting for the cakes.

You can make them any color you want!

Step 4

Add bugle beads to look like sprinkles decorating the bundt cake.

Step 5

Because these are Christmas bundt cakes, I thought a holly sticker would be a nice touch.

Step 6

Add some tapered candles and you have mini Christmas bundt cake candleholders for your holiday centerpiece!

    Would these work with metal molds? I’ve got lots of those. Maybe oil the inside just like making a cake? Haven’t used resin so I don’t know.
