First, secure your wicks in your banana split dish with hot glue or wickstickers.

Next, heat your gel and when it is melted, add your red candle dye (one drop at a time, until you get desired color) and add 1/2 ounce of gel safe strawberry fragrance per pound of gel wax. Mix everything up really well.

Now that everything has been mixed, pour a little gel into your banana split dish to help "anchor" your ice cream scoops.

Slip all of your ice cream scoops over the wicks and seat firmly in the red gel. Take banana split halves and position them on either side of the scoops.

Next, heat more plain gel and when it is melted, add your dark brown candle dye (I add a lot of dark brown to get a realistic chocolate syrup look) and add 1/2 ounce of gel safe chocolate fragrance per pound of gel wax. Mix everything up really well.

Now that everything has been mixed, pour a gel over the tops of each ice cream scoop.

 Take a little unscented wax crumble to use as your "chopped nuts" and sprinkle over the gel you just poured over the ice cream scoops.

Now, if you prefer this look, you can stop here, trim your wicks and your candle is done. If you prefer to add the whipped cream and cherries, go to the next step.

Now it is time to whip your wax up. See my Whipped Wax Instructions if you do not already know how to do this.

Once your wax is whipped, scoop/pour it into your re-usable pastry bag and squeeze your whipped dollops one by one around each wick and slide cherries over wick, seating them firmly in the dollop.

I've found that the cherries "seat" better, if you do one dollop/cherry placement, before moving on to the next wick.
