I buy a transparant or white liquid soap for this, it shows the honey color when made. You could also use a neutral bubble bath as a base. I now sell this at craft fairs and for the packaging I bought old fashioned glass milk bottles. If you plan to give this as a gift, save up small salad dressing bottles, that is what I used to use. My favorite fragrances for this are: patchouli with orange, jasmin, honey or lavender. The oil is good if you have a dry skin, you can half the amount or leave it out because it will reduce the bubbles, and don't forget to tie your hair up otherwise it gets greasy from the oil!

Recipes for Cakes Baked In Jars Ever baked cakes in canning jars? It's neat! ANY quick bread-type cake can be baked in canning jars. Lighter cakes tend to fall once the jar seals. I usually bake one jar first -- you have to know how high the batter rises. I usually fill ONE jar 1/2 full then bake it to see how high it rises, then go from there. You don't want the cake to come out of the top of the jar, only to within 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the lip of the jar. Write it down on your recipe (how far you filled the jars)! Once you've established how high the cake rises, you can go from there. The first time around is a bit tricky because you won't know how many jars you'll need. MOST of the recipes I've tried I end up using around 8. Sterilize as many jars as you think you'll need and go from there. Make sure your LIDS are new, the rings don't ha ve to be As the jars do seal, the cakes are as moist as the day you put them into the jars--sometimes MORE SO. The baking times will vary.

Recipe #3212

Give 1 of each rice mixture to one person or individual recipes to different people. Tie a festive ribbon around each jar or baggie and a tag or card with a message that includes THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS: "To cook, combine the rice mixture, 2 cups of cold water and 1 Tbs butter in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and cook over low heat 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Makes 4-6 servings." I got this recipe years ago from a book of "gifts from the kitchen" from the 1970s or 1980s. One recipe each of all 4 mixtures makes 2 gifts yielding 4-6 servings, so the way I came up with total servings is 4 x 2 x (4 to 6) = 32 to 48. (Also good to keep for yourself for when you're in a hurry or to take camping.)

Recipe #201118

Get ready for the holidays!! I know a company that sells these for $7 each but I like to include them in holiday baskets. I like to make these for the kids to have cider during the fall and winter holidays as a tradition in our very new household. They are very cute and great as a gift. Tie with a festive ribbon and attached to a bottle of apple juice along with the directions. Also these can be made inexpensively if you purchase your spices from a store selling them in bulk by weight.

Recipe #201116

I used Coffee Mate vanilla-flavor powdered creamer and Nestle Nesquick, I am not certain if they sell this in the States, if not use similar products, also plain powdered cream can be used in place of vanilla, but the vanilla is better lol! Here's what to do to give as a gift; divide the mixture between two 1-quart glass jars, seal and decorate as desired, attach a tag with 1 cinnamon stick (if desired for stirring) with the following instruction...For hot cocoa, dissolve 1/3-cup mix in 1 cup (or more) boiling water, stir with cinnamon stick and enjoy!

My daughters and I make these every year. You can change the look of the crystals by using different color and textures of pipe cleaners (chenille stems). Just choose your color and choose your shape: stars, snowflakes, trees, gingerbread men. The girls especially love using glittery white and silver ones to make 'snowflakes'. We don't just do these at Christmas, either We've used them on our Christmas tree, to hang in our windows, to decorate packages and gift baskets, for grandparents, initials (fun to spell out the kids' names), mobiles, etc. One year we found red and white striped pipe cleaners and made really cute hearts for Valentine's Day to take with a plate of cookies to some shut-in's. They make darling flowers, too. The only limit is your imagination. :o) They are fairly sturdy but the crystals can be knocked off if hit too hard so we spray ours with clear acrylic spray paint/shellac when they're dry (especially the ornaments that we want to use year after year). We haven't tried adding food color to the water yet, but that's on our list of possible variations to see if it works the same. We have also tried reheating and reusing the solution, but with mixed results and you would need to dissolve more Borax in if you do that.

These NON-EDIBLE Ornaments where made often when my children where young. These make great bows for gifts that can be kept forever. You can use any cookie cutter shape and make them all year. Great for bridal shower favors or place cards with names attached to pretty ribbon. Have fun and don't for you children would love to help with this one as well. You can speed up the drying in a very low oven. Decorate with glue and glitter, feathers, ribbon, buttons whatever you find that won't attack bugs! No sugar. Make these as gift tags and wright names on them with the glue and glitter. Or use the decorative glues. When fragrance fades use just a drop or two of Essential Oils placed right on the back. Then

Recipe #137024

Make for yourself or as a gift. If you don't like the strawberry try Peaches & Cream or Lemon Meringue, adjusting the fragrance and the color, or make a blue and white version using a fragrance of your own choice. Note: Regarding to the review that uses Kool-aid I would like to say that I have never used that and I am not sure or it will leave stains.
