    I'm about to give this a try and didn't really find anything definitive on youtube. Do you put the pre-wicked tabs in the cups before you pour, or after you pour and just before the wax sets up?
    With that small amount of wax I don't imagine it would take long to set up.
    Thanks

    People I have seen do them put them in before but they were the metal ones.

    maybe dip the wick base in some wax and stick it to the bottom of the cup before pouring?

    A seller on ebay.co.uk has tea lite moulds with the wick pre-glued to the metal cup ---- just pour wax.
