Soap Bundt Cake

When I make something, I want it to be both beautiful and interesting. This soap Bundt cake is both, and it smells divine. I have seen soap Bundt cakes in gift shops with "slices" for sale. To me, the beauty is in the perfect molded cake, so I decided to make one for myself and leave it whole. I took a plastic Jell-O mold (the fact that it was plastic made it super easy to remove), purchased some dyes, scents (cucumber!) and a block of glycerin soap at Michaels and before I knew it I had my new favorite thing. I display it on a cake stand with a paper doily and it serves as art. Love it!

Michael (our fellow commentator) over at PDP is right! You have a lovely blog!
I can be very sentimental myself but until I read your blurb I never thought of describing myself that way.

Thanks, Lily. Do you know how Michael found me? I am so glad that you are all enjoying my work!
Yes, I am truly sentimental. Glad to have found a kindred spirit. Best, Anne

Hi Anne, When you comment on someone elses post they can click on your name & see your profile & then scroll down to see your blog & click on that. I am assuming that is how he found you-from the paris daily photo. That is how I found you. I saw his comment & I had to check you out. I'm glad I did. This is what I love about blogging!
