Great Cakes Soapworks
Amy Warden, Owner
I made my first batch of cold process soap on November 18, 2002, as a Christmas gift for my friends. It was a wonderful experience that led to many more, until I had more soap than my family and friends could use. I became a vendor at my local farmer’s market during the summer of 2004. In 2005, Great Cakes Soapworks was born out of the combination of my passion for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and my passion to make great soap. I have been making and selling soap ever since!
My absolute favorite part about making soap is the creative aspect of mixing various swirling and coloring techniques, textures, and fragrances. I have formulated each recipe for a specific purpose, and the one I make most often has seven different oils and butters. I love to experiment with new ingredients to create soaps that not only cleanse and condition the skin, but also add delight to the senses.
I am blessed to be married to a wonderful man who supports my business endeavors, and I have two beautiful daughters who help me out from time to time. When I'm not making soap or taking care of my family and home, I have been known to spend time helping out with the middle school ministry at our church, making copies for the teachers at our girls' school, taking on home decorating projects, reading a good book, or spending way too much time on Facebook.
