New Soap Stamp with my Logo

A few weeks back i decided to order a soap stamp with my logo from 
The stamp is made from acrylic (perspex) which gives it good compressibility. 

The soap came through the post a few days back and i have only tried it on my new batch of 'Rose & Geranium' Soap but I'm already in LOVE with it!!! 

These are a few pictures taken soon as i sliced the soap.  I was instructed to make a batch test and stamp at different stages throughout the curing process, however my first attempt proved success full so i just stamped away.

Honey Oat Fingers

'Honey Oat Fingers' are one of my childhood favourite recipes, i have always loved making and eating them and at times i have had terrible cravings for them. They are really quick and easy to make (within 30 minutes, if you have all your ingredients ready)

1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup dessicated coconut
1/4 cup raisins
125g sugar
1 tbsp honey
125g butter
1 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt

mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl 
melt butter and add to the dry ingredients
thoroughly mix the ingredients together and press firmly into a lined tray 
bake in a moderate oven (gas mark 4, 180C) for 15 minutes
remove from oven and cut into slices whilst hot
allow to cool
....and enjoy with a nice cup of tea :)
