It all started about a year or so ago when I watched this YouTube video. The video was uploaded by Soap Perfect. She made some gingham soap using a mould made out of Lego. You have just gotta watch it. She did cheat with her significantly photoshopped final pic, though 🙂 If you check out the video, you will note the difference! Continue reading
I know it has been a long time but my life hasn’t been that exciting of late. My cooking, in particular, has left a lot to be desired. Oh, well, at least, I have been making soap. Continue reading

This is this week’s pièce de résistance. Not only do they look fab but the stars are made from melt and pour soap which I made myself !! Continue reading
I started writing this post on Saturday, then thought I should add a couple of food snippets (as this is a food blog) and before you knew it, I had a post written about my pavlova.
So what have I really been doing over the Christmas break? Making soap, of course! Continue reading
