Yes, busy, busy, busy little Soapchick has been making like crazy. I have some lovely new ideas for Christmas soaps, some already made and some in the making. I want to share them with you today, some are on the curing racks already and will be ready for order really soon.
Re-vamped Christmas Spice Cake for 2011
Christmas Spice Cake is an annual favourite, each year I redesign it and try to make it better and better. This year I have gone for the holly and berry look on top, swirls of lovely creamy soap laden with cinamon, nutmeg, cranberry and clove scents. It is a real winner and I think that this years version is the best ever!
Christmas Berry cupcakes
Now these really are lovely, the base is scented with a mixture of wild berry and tangy cranberry, very Christmassy, the tops are decorated with mixed berries, and lovely indigo glitter. Another one that I don't have a name for yet, so if you can help I would love to know what you think?
I recently fell in love with a new, tiny gingerbread man cutter and I had to get it. So..... naturally this means a new cupcake is born! this one has a fantastic ginger cake fragrance, so spicy and lovely. Some of the cupcakes have a candy cane on the opposite side, some a gold star, everything made out of soap of course! I need a name for this little beauty, can you help?
"Follow The Star" Limited edition
I am so excited by this soap, the idea came while I was sleeping - I know it sounds crazy but I dreamed this soap!
I wanted to make a real scene in soap, my interpretation of the Christmas message. The fragrance started me off, frankincense and Myrrh, a beautiful, warm, rich scent, and what else did the wise men bring? Gold of course, I wanted a star and glitter too. This is the result, a desert night (it will get darker, the sky I mean, as the fragrance ages to a much darker colour), the sand dunes peeling off into the distance, a wild, glittery, magical sky and a huge, pure white star to follow. The soap looks equally good straight out of the mold or cut up into bars (as above) I think, I really wanted the scene to show up well and tell the story of Christmas in soap, I think it does and I hope you do too, please let me know.
Before the final cut, straight out of the mold as an extra large bar and before the gold 'chunks' were coloured up.
Christmas Tree Cupcakes
and finally, another re-vamp of a favorite from last year. I have make these cupcakes again as I have already had lots of orders in, but, as always, I have made them slightly different this year. I hope you wont be disappointed. The scent is the same lovely mixture of Christmas spices as the cake at the top of this blog, cinnamon, clove, cranberry and nutmeg.
