The Yorkshire Soap Company

As one of my leaving gifts from my last job, my friend Zoe kindly brought me a gift from the The Yorkshire Soap Company which came beautifully wrapped up in their packaging. I had never heard of the company so I didn't really know what to except when I opened the box and inside was this beautiful cake slice. I had never seen anything so pretty in my whole life and because I love baking it was just such a thoughtful gift.  Not only did the cake slice look amazing but it smells incredible, this one smelt of Apple Blossom. It is so pretty I don't really want to use it!

I was showing everyone at worked the photo of the cake slice on my phone and they all thought it was real until I told them it was made completely out of soap! A few of them mentioned they been to The Yorkshire Soap Company in my local town York so I decided I had to go and see for myself what all the fuss was about. I went around Christmas time and the store was full of Christmas decorated cupcakes and soap gingerbread men. It was like being in a winter wonderland of things made of soap. Everything smelled amazing and they had whole cakes in different scents cut up into slices that you can buy. It is one of them shops that you really need to experience in person.

I have now fallen so in love with this brand that for my birthday my sister even brought me a birthday cupcake in the scent Rhubarb and Custard, with a birthday candle which was really sweet of her.
