Capuccino Cupcake soap - video tutorial

I finally finished editing the cupcake soap video tutorial!

Hope you enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed making the soaps. I'll be trying more "flavors" for sure, they were such fun to make!

Soap display ideas

 I've been searching the web for a nice soap display I can offer the retail stores with my product. Up until now I've used cute baskets, but the soap really doesn't shine in them. So I want to make a display that will showcase the product and be a perk for the store to have on their counter.

So far these are the ones I like the most, our first idea was the one in the bottom left hand corner, but we are thinking about the weight - will it hold in a glass countertop? Probably not unless it is a really light wood. Then we thought of the one in the middle of the second line from the top, it uses a lot less wood so it will weigh less. I wanted to go with MDF and do some type of country paint on it, but my hubby doesn't feel comfortable working with MDF, so we'll go with pine probably.

What types of soap displays do you like/have on your stores?

It's been a while!

Goat's Milk, Mint and Lemongrass Soap
Wow...it's really been a while since I've written anything in my blog. I got hit with a big couple of orders, went to a 2 week training in the US and got back to work on my black belt certification (quality not martial arts). I've been really busy, but not soaping at all...I'm down to a couple of bars of each soap and don't have coconut oil to soap with!! It's been on backlog for the past couple of weeks and it's driving me nuts!

Anyways, I did the soap challenge with goat's milk soap - which is ready by now...I've actually sold a couple already to a special lady who is going through chemo and loves this soap because it soothes her skin and the fragrance doesn't make her sick.

Cappuccino Cupcake Soap





I also did the piping challenge, and just sold 2 of those :) I just regret not keeping up with the challenges, but my career at this moment is more important :)



I received two delicious packages, one from Jaboneria Suval in Spain and another from Dana in Germany. Boy am I enjoying them! Really really nice treats for me...only problem is trying to get my family not to touch them...they're mine! My precious!! hahaha

Hope to drop by more often.
