Icing Colour Chart

I came across this 'Icing Colour Chart' on Pinterest and had to share it with you. 
The original chart was posted on Anne and Blue Paperie blog.

The colours are amazing and i am dying to try out some of these colours.  The colours are made up of standard yellow, red, blue and green food colourings. 

Has anyone tried this chart?

Breakfast at the Blue Legume

One of my favourite places to have breakfast on a lazy Sunday morning is at the 'Blue Legume' on Stoke Newington Church Street, London.  When I'm in one of my more healthier moods i like to go for the fruit platter with 3 waffle biscuits, greek yogurt and maple syrup....YUM !!

Pink Salt Soap

I have tonnes of pink himalayan salt in stock and thought i would make a floral soap topped with it.

This is a cocoa butter based recipe, pink clay has been swirled through the soap to give it a feminine appearance.  Essential oils of ylang ylang, bergamot and grapefruit were added.  The essential oil combination made the mixture seize slightly so i had to quickly pour the mixture into the mould. Lastly the soap was sprinkles with a genourous amount of pink hymalyan salt.
