1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Candy Flavorings for Lip Balm? on: September 02, 2007 09:20:34 AM
I completely agree, it could definitely be read both ways. LOL

But looking at those LorAnn oils definitely makes me want to order some. I am just imagining the combos I could make. I mean, how absolutely luscious would a pumpkin cheesecake lip balm be? I am drooling right now! Cheesy

This is how I was reading it: (brackets mine) LOL
I've used LorAnn but they (the flavours) have to be the 100% oil. If they (the flavours) have any water, they (the flavours) don't incorporate in the lip balm and you get gooey pockets.

Hey it could be. I've never ever seen a lip balm recipe with water in it but *have* seen flavours with it. Mind you I've never seen flavour *oils* with water, but definitely flavours themselves, like the kind one might use to flavour a cake or coffee...

I believe what was meant by "make sure it has no water in it" was in reference to the flavouring, not the lip balm recipe. If a flavouring contains water, it will not incorporate into an oil-based lip balm recipe.

That being said, I have never used candy flavours in my lip balms. I have used all kinds of lip balm flavours as well as a few essential oil. I prefer sticking with flavour oils for the most part.

Very nice! Great domes on the balms too. I fill all my lip balms with a syringe. It goes very quickly and is practically mess free.

Thank you for all the lovely comments. I'm beaming! Cheesy

We are located in Saint John, New Brunswick (not Nova Scotia I'm afraid). Our MLA is Roly McIntyre.

The soaps are NOT made in a cake pan but simply in a 5 gallon ice cream bucket. I made up a cutting template in Avery Design Pro and I slice the cakes up with a wire soap cutter that is wide enough to clear the whole cake at once.

We have a nice step display in the shop window that fits four cakes perfectly. I LOVE how people stop in their tracks to look at the cakes. LOL
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / More Soap Cakes Anybody? on: May 23, 2007 03:31:20 PM
We've been making soap cakes for a while now and thought I would share them with you all. Smiley

This one that's being cut was from when we had the grand opening of our shop. (That's my hubby in the hot pink along with the deputy mayor in back and our MLA in front).

Here is one of three chocolate cakes we did for a volunteers' tea. We sliced them and "served" them in the clear bakery clamshell containers, on a hot pink napkin (our signature colour, if you couldn't tell. LOL)

This is a Butter Rum Candy Cake topped with Red Rosebuds.

We just sold this Apple Pear Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Soap Curls. It left by plane for a wedding in Montreal last Friday.

This one is Tart Cranberry & Lemon topped with dried Lemon Slices. It's currently in my shop window along with the Butter Rum Candy Cake, a Spice Cake "cake" and another one that I forget right now.

That's all the pics I have here. The camera is at the shop with the newest cake pics on it.

I hope you enjoyed looking!

Maybe a paste made from baking soda and water? That always removes the rust and lime drips all over my car when I park in underground parking so maybe it will work on your weathered glass too.
