Bathing with Cake


I've been making soap cakes for over a year now and have always loved making them but recently it dawned on me that customers may not even use them. What if they just buy them to look at? I don't know how I feel about that. I mean, I make the soaps so that they're lovely on your skin so it would be a shame to not use it.

If you purchased or was given a soap cake would you use it or hold on to it to look at?

I would use it for sure, but I'd admire it for awhile first!

I don't get to take many baths at my current abode, but back when I could I was definitely a "user" of bath cupcakes. But I admit to it being difficult! I especially have a hard time using pretty soaps, and most end up in my drawers as "sachets."

I admit that I use to be a that person to let the pretty soaps set as a decoration, Now I let them sit and then use them. Since I have been making my own for years and have gotten the comments "oh that is to pretty to use" I have made up my mind, I WILL USE PRETTY SOAP!!!!

These are some of the most beautiful soap cakes I have ever seen! I suppose if someone SENT me soap cakes, I would absolutely HAVE to use them ;)

:D Yes, of course, I would ant to admire them for a while, but I'd use them. Most people, people who do not make soap would probably just let it collect dust. unfortunately. My mother is one of them.

They are really pretty. I think honestly I would use them more for gift giving since they are so pretty. Especially the cupcake one for my sister who loves cupcakes!

I would definitely use one of your yummy treats and enjoy it to the last drop! If you take that much care to make sure they look so fabulous, I'm sure you take just as much care to make sure the ingredients are top shelf!

They look fabulous. I would have to stare at it, I'd say :)
