Cardamom definitely a new favorite scent of mine. The scent is warm, sweet and spicy. A little goes a looong way. This new soap is called Watalappan. It's named for a a dessert from Sri Lanka that is pretty much a tropical version of Creme Brulee.

Oatmeal, Milk & Honey seems to be a must have in every soap shop. It's sweet, warm and comforting. I've tried this fragrance oil from several suppliers but the Cylliba oil from Bramble Berry is the one that I keep coming back too. The fragrance oil in CP soap tends to be on the light side (no matter who I purchase from). This time I gave it a little more of a kick by adding Honey and Brown Sugar fragrance oils to the mix. Yummy! The scent gets stronger and the soap cures.

These cute little cupcakes were in my shop during the holiday season. They're all sold out now, but I thought I'd share anyway. The basic recipe came from Ann Marie on Soap Queen TV. It took many, many failed attempts to finally get the "icing" on these right and I really haven't had the patience to take a day and try it all again. Maybe I'll make some more in time for Easter.
