Wedding Party Favor Cake



This is a 12 slice, 9" round and tall Snickerdoodle Soap Cheesecake! Men have been falling out when they see it on my craft table. Women have been sizing up what they need for the parties they've been planning. Big difference in thoughts- and very amusing.


Soap cakes cut as easily as butter from the fridge. With a round cake the first cut is to cut the cake in half, then the piece/slice cuts are easy.

This cheesecake, a more elaborate style, would cost between $50.00 to $60.00. Depending on my costs to create what you've chosen in color, style and fragrance.

Leave me a message below if you have any questions or want to order an original cake.

Cheers, Vicki

I won a Blue Ribbon



My soaps and soap cakes were a big hit at The Art Show! Everyone told me they've never seen soap like mine. I had wine soaps, loofah soap, cold & hot process soaps. My beautiful soap cakes were having folks stop in their tracks to look and admire.

So, guess what......I won the blue ribbon from within the gigantic miscellaneous group category!

Thank you to my friends and family, to my wonderful customers and the Soroptimists Club of Havre de Grace Maryland!

Party Cakes



I wanted to see how far I can go! In getting ready for The Havre de Grace Art Show 2017, I decided to make a show stopper party cake. I make great soap, most of my customers prefer to buy the rustic bars I make in hot process. But I want a masterpiece. I'm making a lilac 3 tiered wedding cake!


This wedding cake took a week to make. I made much of the floral pieces in glycerin before starting the cake. I found the cutest small silicone mold for the 3 parts. It's a cold process design soap, very liquid-y and allowed the most delicate swirls in the middle layer. Carefully assembled over the week- it came out even better than I'd dreamed!

I also made a dark intricate mold cake in Black Amber Lavender. Oh goodness it's gorgeous! Turns as dark as fudge after it's cut, magical.


The peach colored cake is quickest to make and will be a favorite for party & wedding favors. I can pre-cut a cake, or you may have the pleasure of cutting at your party. A fun thing to do at a bridesmaid or baby shower and a wonderful memory to keep (and use).


One more cake (this one sold not long after it's first visit to a market table!) a beautiful flat cake with piped topping. Looks like a  wintertime. So much fun to make this and it was the first made of all the cakes. In a cake order, you would pick color, fragrance, style and sliced/or not. Cakes start at $35.00. The wedding cake, as a custom order is $80.00



More rose cupcakes too. At market our soaps are $5.00 each. If you buy 4, you get one of the cute cupcake soaps too!

All the Pretty Colors!



You may know that I like making soap, some fancy, some cakes, but also some good old "Everyday Soap Rounds" Today I'll share images of the 9 flavors I have left. (Yes, there were 10, Dragon's Blood sold out at the Maryland Faerie Festival.)

Everyday Rounds are filled with goodies even though I call this my ordinary soap line, there is silk, clay, oatmeal, honey, yogurt, coconut milk & coconut water. All these items add luxury to your personal washing time. I love the creamy lather and the slick feeling of the clay and silk. Best of all, your hands aren't overly dry or squeaky after a good wash. Here we go...

Summer is for Watermelon!


 I've been wanting to make watermelon soap since last year! I thought I'd try it in Hot Process and keep it within my "Everyday Soaps" line. More of those in another post. I love the rustic and yet still fun look.

Wonderful stuff is in this soap! I've used mango butter, coconut water, kaolin clay, tussah silk, oatmeal powder, yogurt and honey!

These will cure and be ready by August 4th when we set up and at Havre de Grace's First Fridays. My "Everyday Soaps" are fun rustic's in a convenient size and still just $5.00. Anyone may reserve a Watermelon Soap. Just message me at my Bay Breeze Soap Facebook page.

And now....The Loofah. A short history.



The history of the loofah


See the entire story http://www.spectatornews.com/showcase/2007/03/15/the-history-of-the-loofah/The loofah. 

Most people use it for showering. It’s generally used for exfoliating dead skin and can also be used as a sponge, said Tom Colgan, owner of Loofah by the Inch. But where did it originate?

Something New: My Soap as Cupcakes



Soap can be beautiful and wonderful to use. 

You may have seen soap as bakery items, it's too fun not to make these. My first adventure into cupcake soap started with "How did they ice that thing?" After some research I found out I could pipe fluid soap through pastry tips. Oh boy it was fun watching both videos on soap making and cupcake icing! This is an art too. Your real royal icing is not going to harden up on you and you learn to work fast! But iced soap is so divine to look at.

Love Love Love Wax Melts!


     I first heard of wax melts from my sister who was supplementing her Christmas mad money by making and selling them. They smelled lovely, lightly scenting the room. At that time she was using the little melt units with votive candles. Since then I've rediscovered the wonders of having wax melts in my home. I have two warmers, both electric and with a deep 3 inch bowl. 
Love, love love these wax scents!!
