Okay, here they come. It's the wedding anniversary of my cousin and her husband today and when I asked them what food I should bring to the party, he answered: an aspic-preseverd hippo. So I thought of how I might surprise them and bring something that looks like a hippo in aspic and came up with this idea: selfmade (glycerin) soap with plastic hippos (from the toys department) sitting in them. They don't wobble, but they're still quite cool!
a note from today:
self-made glycerin soap is easily done and with some little shells, toys or jewelry inside they make a great gift! all you need is some glycerin soap (from a craft store). melt it, and pour it into a form (i used cleaned out yoghurt cups) and place the embellishment where you want it. let it cool so that it gets hard. i later placed the soaps into cellophane bags (muslin works great too!)
these particular ones were just made with glycerin soap, but the possibilities are endless!! you can add color or essential oils to get the scent you love.
