anyone help with this candle fire?

i want to make this effect:



to say the truth, i’m making a birthday cake…
and i was thinking cycles because the wax can be SSS, but there is no volumetric, so how should i do it?
please help me with the smoke settings, i can’t seem to make it without smoke and it does not come up in BI render…

combine them! see this link: http://cgcookie.com/blender/2013/10/10/compositing-smoke-simulations-cycles-renders/

can someone give me the settings of this candle? i would like to know the settings of the smoke… i can’t do it well…
