Autumn Wax Melts

These smell so wonderful! Cinnamon pumpkin, maple, caramel apple and vanilla pumpkin espresso mix. I am so happy about their popularity and I've had to create a second batch. The whole shop smells delightful!  463 Franklin St Havre de Grace Maryland next the mouth of the Susquehanna River and the tip of The Chesapeake Bay.

I've made lot's of mermaids soaps this summer. Always a sell out. Here are a few of them.

Vanity Soap Bowl full of mermaids and shells. These are precut in half. After you're done looking at them on the sink counter for a while.....give them to the kids!

One layer Mermaid Fantasy Cake. Easy to cut.

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!

Check out how easy it is to cut a soap cake HERE at my quick video. Cheers!

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.
