After you've poured the candles, set them aside to cool. Since you've got them half-filled with ice, they'll cool quickly - but it's still a good idea to let them sit for an hour or so.

As you can see here, I misjudged the height of the taper a bit...I'll either cut that little tip off, or just melt it down. It's easier to just cut a bit off of the bottom of the candle before you put it into the mold though.

Here's a picture of the green candle after I melted the top off.
