These candles look and smell like delicious cheesecake

Ellie Conley

Candles smelling of sweet desserts are nothing new, but these candles by Karuba’s Craft smell and look like the buttery soft cheesecake. While some look like mini round cheesecakes, others are just a slice — but all are dripping in a faux fruit topping that almost appears good enough to eat.

Dominique Carlos is a self-taught candlemaker who founded Karuba’s Craft, a recently launched brand named after her Belizean great-great-great grandmother. Carlos started creating her delectable candles at the end of May 2020 with all-natural ingredients. So far, varieties include blueberry, orange and peach, very berry and strawberry.

Not surprisingly, she’s already seen great success. Just a little over a week after she launched her brand’s Instagram account, she had over 1,000 followers.

“I have always loved candles and have been fascinated with food shaped candles for quite a while now. I just wanted to make something that is different and uniquely mine,” Carlos tells In The Know. “To be honest, candle making is my personal therapy, as the process is very soothing.”

While she takes orders through her IG account, she also created an eBay shop. The candles sell for $15 each and ship anywhere in the U.S., as well as internationally.

“I plan on introducing a few more cheesecake flavors, such as lemon meringue pie and caramel turtle cheesecake. Also, I plan on venturing out and trying other sweets such as pies, sundaes and many more,” Carlos says of her future plans for Karuba’s Craft.

But in the meantime, you can shop Karuba’s Craft candles on eBay. And if gushing over beautiful dessert-like candles is your type of thing, be sure to give the brand a follow on Instagram.
