Once again, I am awestruck at the ingenious, creative ways individuals find to elevate soap to an art form. In this case, a culinary art form (OK, you can't eat it, but it sure looks like the real thing).
Carolyn and Selena Shillito are a mother and daughter team in Australia who make exquisite cake and cupcake soaps. Each soap is individually handmade in their home kitchen. I can't even begin to guess how long it takes to make just one let alone an entire cupcake tray. Take a peek at their web site, you'll be amazed at their work. I'm certain they're not willing to divulge a cupcake how-to; but, should they ever offer an online class, I'll be the first to sign up.
There are other talented cupcake soap divas right here in our own neck of the woods (pictured below). I sure hope this post offers inspiration and gives food for thought (no pun intended) on what you (yes, YOU) can do with soap.
