This is my first post in the Bath and Beauty section, I think. Anyway, I just haaave to share my favorite soap I've made so far. It's inspired by Paula Deen's recipe "Not Yo' Mama's Banana Pudding"

Made with a melt and pour (sshhhh!) shea butter base; I added apricot seeds (for exfoliation and decoration), and it has a banana and vanilla scent. It smells just like banana pudding! And it looks like a chessmen cookie - 'cause that's what Paula tops her puddin' with.  I love it! Smiley

I sprinkled apricot seeds on the edges of my rectangle mold, poured in the soap and also sprinkle apricot seeds into a chess-piece candy mold and soap base followed that.  After they'd both hardened, I melted a little bit of soap to use like "glue" and affixed the chess piece on top of the rectangle bar. Voila! Super neat and super delicious smelling soap. Yummmm.

Thanks for looking!  Kiss

I remember that one Smiley  Hehe thats such a great idea.  You should send Paula Deen some and tell her about how you got the idea.  I bet she would love it and talk about it on the show.

Add me to the Paula Deen worshipers. Being a Southern girl myself, I appreciate anyone who wraps bread sticks in bacon.  Grin

That is a neat soap mold! I really the soap itself, and the scent sounds dreamy. I'd be down with smelling banana pudding in the shower!  Smiley
