My oh my does this wax melt smell like the real deal! Delicious white cake topped with fresh picked strawberries and whipped cream!

    I have those little bee molds! And they are SUPER cute. I bought them for soap-making and made some little bathroom soaps for my mom, who’s into bees. They’re a great little size for wax, too, for those smaller tealight burners. Those cookies sound great, but then again, you had me at cream cheese frosting. 🙂
