Another way and free way to diffuse light is to use a flash on your camera, I used an old SLR and covered the flash head with grease proof paper, this spreads the light for a more natural look.
Put a plain cloth down on a work top put the candle on the cloth and take the picture. You can get royalty free images, if you google it, another thought.
Also, does your webhosting not offer a free site builder software? This will help loads. It will be in your cpanel.
