These soaps are coloured with Cappucino mica (surprise, or should I say no surprise given my obsession with this mica) and fragranced with a blend of chocolate and peppermint. Some coloured micas were rubbed on to the trees and the candy canes had just a hint of mica rubbed on to them as well. I just used my finger tip. The mice were left naked, but they don't seem to mind, they know how cute they are:). Here's a little tip from the scrapbooking world to help your mica stay on the soap. Give it a light spray with some hair spray. Just a little though, you don't want sticky soap.
