Cupcakes- made of soap!!

I finally got around to trying out my new 3D cupcake molds- I have regular size and mini sizes, and they're really cool. Getting them out of the molds isn't so cool, but they do come out, eventually. Here's some pics of the large one I made... next time I'll be paying more attention to the coloring, but as this was my first run with them, I didn't want to spend a whole lot of time. Honestly I wasn't sure that they would even come out of these molds, the walls are so thick. Now that I know they will, the next batch will be pretty pretty :)

PS- it's scented a fresh and clean-smelling Sage Citrus, can't wait to actually USE it!!

Top 100 Handmade Products Websites Site

I just signed up, I figure why not, right? There's a few openings there currently if any of you guys wanna get your shops up there- it's 100% free. Here's a link: I'm not sure if it'll lead to any new sales yet, but... seeing as the initial investment consisted of about 5 minutes of my time, I don't see any downside to signing up.

Plus they have a sweet looking cake background that makes me hungry :)

UPDATE: I have also joined up with The Soap Seduction Top 100 site, for all of the same reasons stated above. Here's a link to that site too :)

Steampunk Soap?

Yeah, I figured why not? It's pretty much made its way into everything else, but I had yet to see any soapy products inspired by days gone by, so...

I'd like to say I scented them all with old-fashioned scents which have been carried since the Victorian era, but that'd be untrue. One of them smells like cotton candy :) The other two, though, were scented with some fragrances that are sure to trip that "nostalgia" switch in your brain. The key with wings has been sold, so I'm down to two, but more will be made, soon. I'm waiting for something awesome to come in the mail so I can get to work; the next round of these "art soaps" as I like to call them is gonna be so freakin' rad.
