Yes It’s Soap!

Good enough to eat. Handcrafted soaps by KateE’s Craftworks

Kathryn Esh of KateE’s Craftworks has lost count of the number of people who pick her soap products up to eat.

But she says men seem most fooled by the eye-catching displays.

“It’s more the men than the kids that tend to eat them,’ Kathryn says with a broad smile.

The hand-crafted novelty soaps are so convincing Kathryn hangs a ‘Yes It’s Soap!’ warning sign.

Kathryn moulds and then shapes each soap piece individually.

It is a laborious process, with  cup-cakes alone taking  2 to 3 weeks to dry.

Kathryn says the soaps attract buyers for their novelty value, and are  popular as business displays and for home decorating.
