Hedgeway Cottage Soaps: Lilac cake and cupcake soaps, applejack and more: "This is the Sweet Lilac cake soap. It turned out so amazing, so delicate. I just love it! ..."
Peppermint soap made with peppermint essential oil is so energizing! The smell is wonderful and I think this one will sell fast.I wanted to make peppermint & lemon for my friend Tammy (it's her favorite scent-she's so sassy) but I ran out of lemon. I will make it as soon as it comes in.
These little mini mouth-watering cupcakes smell of chocolate mint! I will have to put a non-edible sign on these.
Apple Jack & Orange is going to be ready for fall. You know it's everyone's favorite. Fall is my favorite time of year. Cozy sweatshirts, cool breezy walks, and warm tea or coffee by the fire.Yes, and hot chocolate too!
This is straight up PATCHOULI made with organic patchouli essential oil. It smells a little different from the spicy patchouli everyone is used to. You know what they say- You either love it or hate it.I also made it in soap balls.
Sweet Lilac cupcakes should be in a victorian tea room. I can't say enough. Look for yourself. Picture these at a shower! I would be so happy to get one.
This most beautiful soap cake is made with Sandalwood. This has got to be the most romantic scent. I can't stop smelling it.
Citrus Balsam. I made it more beautiful than before and in a smaller bar for those who don't want to spend the money for the larger Forest Fairy or the cake slice.
Lavender cupcake. I love the flower on top. Smells wonderful and made with lavender essential oil- the real stuff.
So that's what I've been working on so far. I've got a lot to do. I have a wedding shower I'm working on and I'll post pics when I'm finished. We have doubled up on the farmers markets on the weekends. My Mr. Happypants will be doing Gross Point, MI on Saturdays and Clawson on Sundays. My daughter and I will be doing Shelby Township on Saturdays and Warren on Sundays. My husband and I also do Howarth, Auburn Hills on Weds., Oxford on Thurs., and Allen Park on Fridays. We will also be at Frontier town in Romeo for the Peach festival. My soaps are also for sale at the Village Trading Post at Frontier Town in Romeo.See you at the markets.

This heat is so unbearable! I'm not doing any farmers markets until it cools down. I don't know anyone in their right mind that would even shop at one in this heat. But that gives me more time to get a lot done. My sister just highlighted my hair and I hope it comes out o.k.. 15 more min. till I have to rinse my head. I went to the Christmas Store today to get some things for my table display at the farmers markets and I bought some silicone round cake molds for the soap cakes, then I went to Michaels and bought papers and embellishments for packaging the soaps.Gotta go rinse my hair. Talk with you soon!

Hedgeway Cottage Soaps: New additions and what to do!: "Oatmeal & Honey facial bar (requested by a salon in Lapeer.It smells amazing! I made a full size bar of Cranberry fig and piped it on top. ..."
I made a full size bar of Cranberry fig and piped it on top. It looks like a twice baked potato lol! Still smells wonderful!
This is Mud Pie Tootsie Toe soap. I forgot what scent I put in it but it has a whole lot of scrubby stuff to exfoliate the most calloused feet!
Grapefruit Jasmin cupcake soap looks so sweet with a fabric rose on top and makes a perfect "just because" gift.
This soap was supposed to be blue & green but because I made this a guy soap with an Axe (Phoenix) scent, it decided to trick me and turn a pinkish purple & green. But the scent is so sexy!
This soap is so light and airy and made with beer which is so good for you "don'tcha know". No added scent but has it's own mild yeasty smell.
Two days of packaging till 2am while Mr. Happypants snores so sweetly on the couch. I never feel lonely with that sound.
Luscious Lavender looks so beautiful. I am soo pleased with it. Made with real lavender essential oil, it smells so nice.
I named this soap Forest Fairy because it was so pretty and the scent name that I used just wasn't special enough. It's scented with everyone's favorite Citrus Balsam!
Moonlit path has a strong ozone-floral scent (at least I think so) it's hard to describe. Awesome lather!
I love the look of this orangeberry cream soap! The scent is very soft, not strong (which I heard a customer say that the soap was all about the look and not the scent) and I kept sniffing it and was considering re-cooking it and adding more scent but decided against it. Not everyone likes a really strong scent and this scent goes with it's soft look.
Here are the soaps that are displayed for shower or wedding favors. They are sooo pretty. This picture is from the Gross Point Farmers Market.

you could order a whole cake and give guests a slice of soap of your choice of scent and color to match your theme.
Soap favors all dressed up in their finery, waiting to be displayed at your shower or wedding.They are really beautiful.
I'm very excited with my newest soap creations! I think they look awesome! I started piping soap frosting (cold process) and I just love the look. It dresses up ordinary soap and takes it to another level. Check them out. I will post how they look packaged soon. They're sooo cute!http://hedgewaycottagesoaps.blogspot.com/ .We're at the Warren Farmers market today. Come on out and see us and stock up on some great soaps. There's a great big shooting water fountain for the kids to play in and great music and a lot of vendors! Have a great day!.
