I've been working on some Halloween Soaps for a few days and finally finished them up. I am so happy with the way they turned out! Below is the listing on Etsy, since they are the "normal' soap cafe treats!
Your soap is looking at you and there is a skeleton in the shower, it must be Halloween. Each box contains one of each 4oz bars, for a total of 8oz. The first bar is our Black Eye Licorice bar, which contains 3 soap eyes and in smells just like black licorice. The second bar is a Graveyard bar and contains a soap skeleton and is scented an osthmanthus, floral/fruity scent. Two soaps packaged together in one clear box, each shrink wrapped.

One of my favorite times of year is Halloween. The decorations at our house have been up for weeks. The table is set all scary and pumpkins are all around. Tonight we will be making scary soaps at the Soap Cafe. Last year one of our pumpkins was a Cheshire cat, enjoy!

One of the first soaps I made here at Soap Cafe was a cupcake soap over 6 years ago. Since then there have been many soap cupcakes on the market as the cupcake craze exploded. I have offered mini soap cupcakes in 3 packs and also as favors for baby showers and weddings and had been looking for the right way to showcase 1/2 dozen mini cupcakes. I found "the box" and now are offering 1/2 dozen mini cupcake soaps. Instead of the usual chocolate and strawberry I decided to mix it up and they are scented raspberry, lemon and orange.

Soap Cafe has bags and bags of soap scraps and we had nothing to do with them until a few weeks ago. These scraps aren't bad soap, just left over in the container while making strawberries or sushi soap ect. They are very colorful and smell great. So after seeing of some pretty swirled soap I decided to use my scraps just for this. I have made 2 batches so far. First batch was a nice fall soap scented of sweet cinnamon and sugar that I gave a few bars away and the rest were purchased by the person I gave a bar to, for them to give as gifts to house guests they were going to be having for the next several weeks. The other batch I made yesterday and it was fruity leftovers so I named it "Swirled Fruit Punch", added some glitter and a little more fruit scent and below is how it came out. This picture is taken with the phone and before they were cleaned and wrapped, just after cutting. I love them and can't wait to make more!
