Time for Tea Soap Delights

I Have had a wonderful time lately making soap, i just love making them, my house is filled with the most delicious scents.
I brought some more lovely scents recently my favourite was the lemon as soon as i smelled it i knew i was destined to make a lemon meringue pie, the base is a yummy sweet caramel and the filling is the beautiful lemon scent the topping is unscented the sweetness of the caramel, and the tartness of the lemon makes it smell so delicious makes you want to eat it, i was so pleased with the way it turned out it looks and smells like the real thing...
I also made some lovely cupcakes i got a little carried away making so many, but they are my most popular seller so it wont matter to much, i made them in a variety of scents caramel, pina colada, lemon, vanilla, ripe raspberries, juicy peach, apricot, bubblegum and chocolate, i made them in a rainbow of colours to suit all tastes, they were so much fun to pipe and will be a hit at my next market.
I tried my hand at layered soaps made to look like cake slices, i drizzled most of them with chocolate soap to make them look like they had melted chocolate on top, i made chocolate raspberry and vanilla (my Fav)
peppermint and chocolate fudge (reminds me of after dinner mint) chocolate, caramel and vanilla smells just like a bar of caramello chocolate YUM, and a coconut ice.
I made meringues with sprinkles and glitter and mini cupcakes too.
In the next few weeks my chocolate fudge cheesecake and strawberry tart soaps will be ready i cant wait to see how thy turn out.
To my family who have been my best guinea pigs more soap will be heading your way really soon...
