Strawberry Lemon Ombre Rose Cake

Our Soap Challenge this month was to create a floral-themed cold process soap...perfectly timed for Spring and Summer :)

Using a triple butter recipe, I whipped up a three layer, strawberry lemon cake with fluffy buttercream icing...yum! 

My poor little guy (who is 6) was so excited and disappointed all at the same time. I ended up making a "real cake" to satiate all of our needs for sugar after this project!

Romeo & Juliet Handmade Soap

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet...

I was so excited to receive my prize for the March 2014 Soap Challenge from Majestic Mountain Sage and somehow managed to blow through it (and then some) in no time at all! So what did I get? Ohhh some of the most delicious fragrance oils I have ever!

It's difficult to pick my single favorite fragrance, but I will say that their Mona Lisa is to die for! I tested it out in this triple butter batch, named "Romeo and Juliet" and it performed wonderfully! The passionate and captivating scent, not to mention those precious little rose buds had "a rose by any other name..." running through my head the entire time.

Thanks again to Amy for hosting these challenges, to Tina at Majestic Mountain Sage for the awesome prize and to all my fellow soapers who voted for "Sea Glass", thanks :)
