The moral of my rather long story is that cute bishōnen
boys and cake are truly a marriage most divine! After discussing Antique Bakery I got home late last night and I remembered my discussion and I started rummaging around in my review box. Inside I finally located what I was looking for...and sadly no it wasn't Kim Jae Wook
but it was the next best thing (the Muse plans on running away to Korea and marrying Kim Jae Wook
and having 2.5 kids but that's a story for another day!)! A cupcake!
Indeed I was feeling inspired to review cupcakes after discussing Antique Bakery! Ummm
Muse why do you have cupcakes in your review box?
Well this cupcake actually isn't edible but more of the bath and body variety! I recently came across Delish Gourment Bath Bakery Bubble Bath Cupcakes
on the Bath and Body Works site. After cruising around BBW
I decided to Google up Delish
and see what the story was!
Glad I did because I came across their rather awesome website which has a pretty extensive array of awesome bath bombs shaped like evil little cuppycakes
that are too tempting for mere words! I actually have three of Delish's Gourment
Bath Bakery Bubble Bath Cupcakes to review for you! Yay
Since I was in the mood for a warm bath last night I decided to slip a Delish
Candy Cane Kisses into my bath tub! Although these promise to sud up they actually don't create masses of bubbles but more of a moisturizing foam. They fizz, pop, and sizzle around your tub while lightly scenting the water with a sweet peppermint fragrance. One of the things that absolutely thrilled me to bits was the fact that it turned my bath water into a ridiculously bright green shade! I felt like a little kid splashing around in all that green water! I was slightly worried all the dye would create a major ring around my tub but it washed away simply and easily. Unlike Lush Bath Bombs these are very subtle in their scent and aren't overpowering. They also last alot
longer and fizz for a good 15-20 minutes before disappearing completely where as Lush Bath Bombs fizz for about 1-2 minutes. It's quite nice to have such a long lasting fizzing treatment in the tub! If you want you can crack them up prior to placing them in the water but I just sunk mine in whole and watched it twirling around as it fizzed. They are pretty big so if you're want to cheap it up a bit you can probably get two baths out of one cupcake!
As I mentioned I tried Candy Cane Kisses last night and it's a very soft, sweet peppermint scent with touches of vanilla and cake! I also have Sugar Plum Fairy which is a warm spicy scent with touches of cake and Birthday Cake which smells exactly like yellow vanilla cake! Mmmm
! Each "cupcake" is decorated with icing, sprinkles, and bright colors eluding to it's scent! For example my Candy Cane Kisses had white frosting, green "cake", and cute red candy cane sprinkles! Each cupcake is themed in color and design to compliment it's scent.
My green bath water hehe
I got a real kick out of these and thought they'd make lovely stocking stuffers
or gifts for the Holidays plus the price isn't at all bad! Bath and Body Works was offering a few separate
sets and single cupcakes but now only has a duo available. I guess they sold out quickly!
The good news is you can still grab them directly from the Delish
Gourmet Bakery website by visiting www.delishbath.com
Each large cupcake is $6 USD
(about the size of my fist) and each mini cupcake is $3 USD
. I haven't tried the mini cupcakes so I can't attest for their size however the large cupcakes are quite large and well worth the $6! The cupcakes are available in a slew of "flavors" like Very Berry and Hot Fudge Sundae, each decorated and looking like a real cupcake!
You can purchase Delish Gourment
Bakery goodies online of course but they also have "bakeries" located in a few locations around the US. Check out this page
for further details about where you can locate a cuppycake
The Muse can't help but Muse Approve these for purchase! She loves the cute details on each cupcake, the inexpensive price tag, the funny little novelty of a cupcake bath bomb, and of course she thinks they'll make an awesome little gift for friends or family!
All the fun of a cupcake without the calories? Likey
! Only problem is I have to keep reminding myself I can't eat these! Sometimes looking at 'em makes me hungry!
