Blueberry Muffin Basket

This blueberry muffin basket is one of my best sellers!  It contains a few fresh smelling muffins smell and look good enough to eat.  Funny enough, when I made my first batch of these candles, one of my son’s friends grabbed one off the counter and nearly bit right through it!  I stopped him short of getting a mouthful of wax, but I knew I was on to something if they looked that good!
