Macaron Soaps

Have been wanting to make macaron soaps for ages and finally had a chance. I bought a few macarons and cast them in silicon, made lots of wax copies and then made trays of silicone moulds. Have been busy making them since then. From left to right: Chocolate, Pistachio, Mint, Blackberry, Raspberry, Mango and Passionfruit. More photos, including packaging later

This is my friend Bonnie, she helps me a day or two a week. She is a great help, she cuts and wraps soaps and assists me making the cupcake soaps which are very labour intensive.

Bonnie is pretending to be shy and not looking at the camera.

GHA Gift Fair 2010

Once again Elysium exhibited at the GHA Gift Fair at Homebush. Although it seemed quieter than last year, orders were good with many of last years clients reordering.

The mini cupcakes were a big hit, they look gorgeous in their box of six cakes with a pretty pink ribbon. As usual, the big cupcakes were very popular as were the bath products.

Clients were very impressed with our new range of luxury soaps. They are exquistely boxed in frosted polypropylene boxes and look very classy.

Meet Millie, my new shadow. She is a 4 month old standard schnauzer. We got her before Christmas as a present for the kids, but she seems to spend most of her time following me or sleeping. Millie comes to the factory with me and has her own play area and knows what areas are out of bounds. I enjoy her companionship and having something other than the wall to talk to when there is there is no one else here.
