snowflake️ QUEEN IN THE NORTH snowflake️ This title is back in shop after a long hiatus. It has a new scent that layers amber, violet, heliotrope, vanilla, and just a hint of leather, to give it some backbone. snowflake

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ― C.S. Lewis

I started making candles in the spring of 2015 as favors for my October wedding. During that process I fell in love with candle making and the endless combinations of scents, colors, and finishes a candle can have. When I thought about making candles to sell online it seemed only natural to combine that process with my favorite pastime, READING! Thus LemonCakes candle co was born. I started with 24 glass jars and 10lbs of wax and now here I am with a basement full of supplies and notebook full of ideas! I love running this shop and I hope that shows in every candle that I produce!

Frequently asked questions

Processing and Shipping Times

The current processing time for orders is 3-5 business days. All packages are shipped Priority Mail through USPS and come with a tracking number. LemonCakes is not liable for any lost or stolen packages.

Returns & Exchanges

I work really hard to make sure all of my candles smell great! However, scent is subjective and while I want every customer to really love their candle I cannot offer refunds or exchanges based on scent preference.

Each one of my candles is carefully wrapped in packing paper but when you are shipping glass accidents can happen! If you receive a candle that is cracked please contact me with a picture of your damaged candle and I will send you a replacement or issue you a refund ASAP.
