I’ve had so much fun making Valentine soaps! Typically, I will make one for the guys and one for the girls. This time there are technically two for each. First up is the soap for the guys. I made two different designs with the same scent – similar to Bleu de Chanel. It’s called Charming:

As I was practicing the Taiwan Swirl, I also made another one with the same fabulous scent. These will be available January 20th:

For the girls, I have this beautiful pink and purple soap called Sweet Nothings:

This one was a 3-day process of creating embeds inside of embeds! You might also notice that the top is another Taiwan swirl. It smells so yummy – like fruity candy!
I also have this Bubblegum soap for the girls:

Super simple and sweet. The embed is made with the new silicone column mold from Brambleberry – thanks to Anne-Marie for my fabulous Christmas presents! I wish the scent was stronger, but it will have to do. The girls soaps will be available January 28th.
There are a couple more new soaps on the curing rack as well. You can check them out on our NEWS page.
This year for Valentines soaps, I decided to use the tiger stripe technique for both the girls and the guys. The color schemes are similar as well. The guys soap is scented with a custom blend that includes amber, sandalwood, musk, as well as a famous cologne dupe (my hubby wears the real thing!). It’s very dreamy!! Colors are black, white and red:

Here’s another view:
Inside is tiger striped – tops are swirled
For the girls, I knew I wanted to use a Pink Sugar fragrance, a super sweet cotton candy scent with notes of bergamot, raspberry, fig, vanilla, caramel and musk. However, it is also known to discolor the soap to a medium to dark brown. I had two different bottles from two different suppliers. One discolors more than the other, so I used the darker one in the black stripes, and the lighter one in the white stripes, and left the pink stripe unscented:

Also tiger striped inside with swirls on top!
Both soaps will be fully cured and available at Greatcakessoapworks.com on January 29th!
