The Maddest Soap Cake I Have Ever Made!

YES.... Here it is, I have never made anything quite as mad and crazy as this before and I must admit I like it.

My Harley Davidson Skull soap cake

And, for once, I remembered to take a few photos as it was being made, so here goes.

This is the skull in the process of being painted, a huge 200g skull of white cold process soap highlighted with burgundy mica

the piped red poppy flowers drying on little wax discs

The Harley Davidson Logo under construction, I wanted to write the whole thing but it was just too much to achieve freehand in soap so I decided to use the famous Harley flames instead

These are the two base cakes white cold process soap swirled with orange and black so hopefully each cut slice will look stunning

I then put it all together with white piped icing, added the poppies, pearls and some small piped black leaves that I highlighted with Burgundy mica - this is quickly becoming my absolutely favorite colouring and highlighting product it is stunning.  I am really happy with the results, a bit creepy but very eye catching.  I just hope the client in Germany likes it!

Now for some more detail of the finished cake.

I hope you enjoy this project, please let me know what you think, leave a comment!

New Christmas soaps to follow soon.

  3. Hey that is great news that you like it Sigrid, as you know, its for your customer!! I am very happy with the result

  4. Oh this is wonderful! I'd love to tour it around on my purple pig, a XL1200S! Love this work it is so creative and imaginative and of the season too!

    1. Thanks Pam, I would love to see my cake strapped to the back of your bike!

  5. Wow - that's awesome! Can I ask how long it took to make? Such intricacy must be very time consuming (though ultimately very satisfying) I've no doubt your client will be thrilled!!

    1. Hi Vicki, It actually did not take that much longer to make than a normal soapcake, the difference being the amount of planning and preparation needed, all the bits like the piped flowers, leaves, pearls and, of course, the skull need to be made in advance and given some time to set well. The rest is more an assembly job! Im glad you liked it and, yes, the client is really thrilled, Im posting it to Germany tomorrow so I just hope I can pack it well enough, that is always the last challenge.
