Vespa Melt & Pour

Have you ever been to Rome and rode around the city on a Vespa? Even if you have not here is an adorable melt and pour soap project from The Soap Queen called Vespa Melt and Pour.  This is an advanced project.  I guess what makes it an advanced project is that you need to create the scooter shaped mold with Flexy Fast Molding Putt.  It is a fast drying and easy product to work with. It perfect for creating a wide variety of mold shapes.

Melon Cupcake Soaps

Cupcakes are still hot.  I love the idea of a cupcake soap ever since I took Ruth Esteves' class on how to make cold process cupcake soaps a year or so ago.  But if you are not a cold process soap maker, here is a melt and pour tutorial from Wholesale Supplies Plus called Melon Cupcake Soaps. Melon scents are always a summer favorite so it would be the perfect party favor to give out or give out as gifts to friends and family.
