Witmer Cinnamon Treasures
Cinnamon Treasure’s products are produced completely by hand using 100% pure and locally sourced beeswax. They scent the beeswax using a custom blend created only for them. It is started with a solid block of beeswax, melted down to add the scent, then hand poured and finished. All items sold are made from scratch, using antique, vintage, and hard to find chocolate molds to pour into and create the pieces.
Cinnamon Treasure’s uses early flat molds, chocolate, Springerle, and cookie molds to make unique ornaments. They have a wide range of items with a large focus on Christmas and Santa, to rabbits, turkeys, chickens, pigs, horses, bees, hearts, cats, dogs, etc. – hard to name them all!
This unique art of molding and carving beeswax began in Germany centuries ago with the Lebkuchen bakers. The bakers used their Springerle and gingerbread boards to mold the first beeswax ornaments. This became a holiday tradition. These boards were carved from fruitwood into elaborate scenes of animals, birds, guild workers, country life and St. Nicholas. By the mid 1500’s, Christmas markets were thriving in German towns. There are records of bakers attending these fairs making gingerroot flavored breads, as well as merchants who made wax souvenirs which people took home and hung on their Christmas tree. It is a tradition carried on today. Cinnamon Treasure’s has expanded this tradition to include casting and pouring figures from exceedingly rare and early authentic chocolate molds from makers in France and Germany as well as the US.
