Sleigh Ride I liked this scent right off (and I love the name!) but it has steadily grown on me until this justmight be my favorite scent of all, but it's so hard to pick an absolute favorite! It's spicy, but it reminds me of mulled apple cider. (I just checked the scent description to see what the listing said--orange, green apple, with mint and cloves--no wonder I guessed cider!) Bramble Berry did a perfect job of noting any discoloration that would occur with some scents. Since I had a heads-up this one would turn to a tan, I kept it simple, just adding a ultramarine violet swirl and a smattering of glitter.
Gingersnap This one smells really and truly edible. How edible? By complete coincidence, I decided to make ginger crinkle cookies the same day that I planned to make this batch of soap. When I was finished with my day's projects, two floors of my home smelled deliciously similar.
I didn't need to insulate after all--my first ever "volcano!"
I made these by filling an old plastic juice concentrate container with the soap. I cut it into slices the next day.
I then frosted them with some unscented soap and finished them off with cookie sprinkles. (I labeled the drying soap cookies to keep a hungry Mister from a sorry surprise if he wasn't paying attention.) I love them so!! And I think they will make perfect guest soaps.
I'd like to thank Bramble Berry SO much for sending me this fun project. My friends and family have been identifying their favorites, so they'll be going to some very happy homes. And with what's left, I'll be surprising some customers with an extra little Christmas gift.
Heads-up, 10th Ave. customers--you can look forward to these sampler kit fragrances appearing in my 2013 Christmas collection! (And I haven't ruled out a last-minute Christmas soaping binge, either, so stay tuned. I just may take advantage of the GIVEMBER50 code, too and a chance at a $50 gift certificate!)
