How to Trim Down the Tops of Large Candles

16 years ago

I was wondering if anyone had a quick and safe way to trim down the tops of tall, round candles.. (?pillar candles?) You know how they can leave a dent in the center when you burn them, leaving a rim and making it difficult to re-light the candle. It seems this rim -- most of the time -- does not also melt. I've done it with a paring knife, which worked, but I don't know how safe that was, and it sure didn't look very nice! My husband and I love to have candles burning. Any suggestions?
