Intro To My Candle Review
Goose Creek has such irresistible sales, when I saw Custard Cream Cake, I knew it had to be mine. The jar label showed this huge hunk of what looked like vanilla cake oozing with white frosting. Mouthwatering.
I took the lid off and on my first whiff thought – CAKE! It smelled just like delicious warm vanilla cake. As in, I-want-to-stick-my-fork-in-this-candle kind of delicious. I didn’t smell the frosting on cold sniff, so I thought I’d head to the official scent description.

Cold sniff, I wasn’t getting all of that. I was getting that moist vanilla cake smell and it was delicious. I decided to light it to see what would happen once the wax warmed.
I lit the candle in a large, open space and it didn’t take long for it to start scenting the area. It smelled just like a moist vanilla cake – like a homemade cake with vanilla pudding added in. OMG – delicious! I was getting that sweet creamy vanilla scent in the background, too. So once warmed it smelled more like the cake-with-frosting I was hoping for. Fruits? Not so much. But that was a-ok with me, because this scent was super delicious as is.
The candle didn’t take long to get a full, deep wax melt pool. As it continued to burn, it put out a really good scent throw, with the scent itself being moderately strong. Just strong enough to think there was cake baking in the oven. The scent traveled on down the hallway and kept the house smelling like freshly baked cake all day. Score!
This candle did well in the large, open space. I think it would work well even bringing it into a smaller, contained space like a bedroom, as it wasn’t too overpowering.
How Did My Candle Burn?
Perfect! I love that these candles have double wicks. This helped it get to a full wax melt pool quicker and keep an even burn. I had zero issues with the wicks and no black sooting – yay! The wicks needed a little trimming after each burn – no mushroom tops seen. These large jars from Goose Creek burn a really long time – like over 100 hours long – so that makes them an even greater value. I had no wasted wax on the sides.
Closing To My Wax Melt Review
I loved this candle – the scent was super delicious…all warm, vanilla, gooey cake and just yummy. There was a clean, slow burn that made it even better. I’d rated it moderately strong scent-wise with an excellent throw. Definitely one I would repurchase. If you love bakery scents – and especially if you love vanilla scents – this would be a good one to try.
