Beach Combing... Soapy Inspiration

I know I've mentioned this before, but I love beach combing!  Leave your shoes at the edge of the surf and stroll up and down the beach in search of treasures from the sea.

This is my soapy take on beach combing...

The flip flops are actually mini erasers embedded in the soap... I love them!  I created the "sand" by adding a bit of ground apricot seed to some goat's milk soap.  Pretty cute, huh?

Hill Country Peaches- Soapy Inspiration

It's peach season here in the Texas Hill Country!

Between droughts and late freezes, this is the first year we've had a good crop in a while.  A friend of mine dropped off a basket full today...

Aren't they gorgeous?

And they inspired these Peaches and Cream soaps:

Scented with Ginger Peach and a bit of Vanilla- fruity and scrumptious!

Soapy Inspirations- Birthday Carrot Cake

Hubby was out of town this weekend on business, and it was his birthday!  So this is how we celebrated last night at midnight when he got home:

Birthday carrot cake with lemon cream cheese frosting!  I know I won't win any cake decorating contests, but it tasted soooooo good.

I made the cake on Saturday, and then had to sit in the house by myself and NOT eat it.  For like 24 hours.  So instead of snitching a piece, I used it for a soapy inspiration:

And it's actually made with Carrot Cake and Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting scents, just like the real thing!

If you're drooling over the first picture, here's the recipe:

Birthday Carrot Cake

2 1/4 C. flour
2 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
4 eggs
2 C. sugar
1 1/2 C. grated carrot
3/4 C. vegetable oil
3/4 C. applesauce

Mix first 4 ingredients.  Beat eggs with sugar until fluffy.  Add carrots, applesauce and oil; mix well.  Add flour mixture and mix well.  Pour equal amounts into two 8" round pans and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Cool and frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting

9 oz. softened cream cheese
3/4 C. softened butter
6 3/4 C. powdered sugar
3 tsp. grated lemon peel
3 T. milk

Beat cream cheese and butter, then add lemon peel and powdered sugar.  Slowly add in milk until you reach desired consistency (you may need a little more or less milk, depending).

And if you're drooling over the second and third pictures, get yourself some here at Bean Street Market!

Back to the Real World

Can you guess where we spent the holiday weekend?

If you haven't guessed yet, here's a hint...

Yep!  We were at Disney World!  And we had a fantastic time.  But all the roller coasters, amazing food, and  Mouse fun means I haven't made much soap lately!  I'm making up for that this weekend, so stay tuned for some brand new soapy inspirations!

And for some Friday fun, check out the blog hops we're participating in this Friday:
