Yummy Dessert Soaps...

Retro Cupcakes

Pink Camo Soap

The orders are pouring in and it's been non stop... i have made loads of soap as i have a huge Christmas market this Saturday and another on Sunday, plus i have heapss of lovely soaps curing, i have been making alot of my soaps out of coconut cream just lately, the texture and smell are divine, they have the most amazing creamy lather and the bars last and last, i just know that my customers will love them as much as i do.
I have also been selling a lot of my soaps through the website trade- me it's just like ebay, as soon as i am listing my soaps they are selling, it's great but so hard to keep track on who's paying, alot of traders ask me to wait till a few days later when other auctions close till they pay, sometimes payments drag on for weeks this way which confuses my paperwork, it seems lately that all i seem to do is paperwork and soap wrapping, making me feel like I'm trapped in my own home held hostage by demanding buyers, funny it sometimes takes them weeks to pay me, yet they expect me to post their parcels the same day that i receive their payments(which i usually do) then send me demanding emails a day later asking where their items are, it really annoys me as i have no control over nz post services, it usually takes 3 days to get items delivered, some people are impossible to please....
Well back to the soap packing and wrapping...

My favourite soap ever ...

I've made so many soaps but i think that out of all my soaps these are my most favourite yet, they smell amazing the first is my coconut creamberry pie... A delicious creamy coconut and caramelised buttery sweet toffee base,topped with a delicious filling of rich coconut cream and berries and then a layer of sweet juicy rich ripe crushed berry sauce finished with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry, or delicate baby pink roses.
My marshmallow slice...A Creamy coconut and caramelised buttery gooey toffee base,topped with a delicious filling of rich coconut cream and ripe juicy berries then a layer of sugary sweet rich mixed berry sauce and smothered with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry.

I also had a big clean up of my felt goods, after many years i have decided not to continue making them they take ages to sew and for such little return it's just not worth the hassle of it all,plus i dont have the time anymore, so i put together many different bulk packs of them and listed them on trade me, i have loads of watchers so far so it will be interesting to see how they do, well back to the soap making....

I have been so busy making soap after soap that i haven't been able to do anything else.
I have made a large selection of cupcakes and soaps that i think will do really well at my upcoming markets, the white chocolate raspberry and rose has proved to be a fantastic seller for me so i made even more batches they smell divine...
Well off to make even more soaps...

These are a few of my latest Christmas soaps, and a few of my latest bar soaps, why is it every bar soap i make lately ends up being a disaster....
The Christmas soaps all turned out like a dream, the white chocolate and raspberry was a flop, it smelled amazing but looked really crappy.
The blue soap has amazing swirls in it, they remind me of the way planet earth looks from space, not the look i had hoped for but still very pretty.
At least my pack of soaps turned out, white chocolate, raspberry, caramel, dark chocolate, and honey, delicious...
I am also not happy with the way my layered soap turned out, it's coffee and dark chocolate layered with raspberry and then vanilla, smells divine just a little streaky in the pink....

The fun never stops... even more foodie soaps

It's been a crazy week, I've been so busy making soaps.
I had a stall at my children's old primary school and had a wonderful time, it was lovely to see my son and his lovely partner turn up for the day and help me out with the selling, we had a few laughs when the rain came down and the wind blew with great force, they were holding up the sides of the gazebo to stop it from blowing away i had visions of a foamy soapy mess..... but eventually it stopped and the son came out...
These are just a few of my newest soaps, i have loads of soap making to catch up on and with Christmas fast approaching i am running out of time.
I have a stall at the Raglan market this weekend and am looking forward to it, i havent been there since last summer, hopefully the weather will improve and the sun will come out... fingers crossed.
