Oh where do I begin... I wrote up this post on Sunday night, tried to publish it on Monday morning only to found that it's a BLANK! All that I wrote and photos are all gone, like they never existed! But I swear I wrote it! Not a good start on the first day of Dragon year... sigh. Alright, I seriously don't remember what I wrote exactly, so I'm going to make this long story short.
My 8 year old nephew from New Jersey asked for chocolate cupcake soap with white frosting for his birthday which is coming up on February 3rd. Normally I would do cold process soap and I've done it many times it's relatively easy for me. But with the time constrain (min. 4 weeks to cure the soap) I was not able to soap cold process. Oh boy I have not done M&P frosting and I heard it's very tricky if you don't get the timing right when you are piping. After a couple failed experiments I proceeded to make cupcake soap!
Don't they look real enough to eat?! I'm so proud of myself. Then the longer I starred at them the more my hands got itchy and wanted to add some more to them. So I did... I was going for that chocolate dipped strawberry look but I just didn't seem to be able to get the right consistency. I like the simple version before I ruined them! :((
Well, no time for a re do, so here they go, total 14 of these over drizzled berry chocolate cupcake soap, out the door across the country all the way to Jersey! I hope Julius likes the drizzle!
