We will also use similar molds to make starish and seashell candy's for our AHR cupcake tower.
Just curious if anyone has made homemade soaps before and if so, some favorite scents (I'm thinking tropical breeze, coconut, etc). Also, should I just stick w/ tan/natural colors for these? I'm thinking that's easiest but if you were getting homemade soaps, would you want to see more colors?
Oh, we are making flip-flip soap too, which of course will be more colorful!

I think using color makes it fun. We did blocks of soap though and the ones that came out best, we used orange juice cartons for the mold and we had pulled out a portion of the batch and added color, then poured it on top of the mold and stuck a knife in and kinda swirled it a little, so each piece of soap had a swirl of color thru it.
We also did a batch of lavender soap and used dried lavendar buds. They kinda lost their beauty, cuz they turn brown in the soaponfication process (sp?), but people said they likd the way it felt like an exfoliator. Here are a few useful sites:

I was thinking oatmeal too, Angela! Especially sicne it's likely some people will be sunburned, so oatmeal and aloe would be nice scents.
Yea, I'm not a fan of coconut either, but it was one FH thought of. lol.
We don't have a Trader Joes, but that definitely seems like the way to go for the cupcakes! Less work=happier Tami!
