Brown Sugar Baby Cakes and Special Packaging

 

 I'm starting to like my alligator-textured soaps. While it does take away from the colors, it's different, and cpop'ing seems to intensify the fragrance. I made these little cakes with leftover batter from a log batch made on the same day. I absolutely love this scent! It's a Bath and Body Works dupe of Brown Sugar & Fig, and it's fragrance heaven. It's almost raisin-y, but the brown sugar and the fig really compliment each other well.  Here's a pic of the loaf I made. I haven't sliced it yet because I can't decide if I want to make these a thick limited edition or slice them regularly. I need to order more oils, I'm almost out-Yikes!


I'm also experimenting with packaging, and I think I've found something I finally like. Here's a look/see. At first I just wrapped them in this cute paper and slapped a label on it, but then I decided to add a strip of hot pink cardstock to make the package POP! The label also doesn't get lost in the busy background. Whatcha think?

The fragrance does sound incredible - but man, that texture looks just to-die-for - very unique and different. Agree with the other commenters that the packaging is really swell too.
