I have had good experiences with every vendor I have tried so far, but there is something about Wahm's that is special. Not only are the scents amazing and of incredible quality, but you can see the care and craftmanship that goes into everything. The cookies, loafs, and scoops, are clear evidence she has a talent for creativity and aesthetics. Even the packaging inside the box, from the pink, red, and blue tissue paper, to the star printed bag my wax loaf came in, the attention to detail really makes you feel as if every order is special.
Now on to my goodies! :)
Some of the items I ordered specifically, and the others I asked to be surprised.
I got a bunch of individual tarts, requested in random scents. The scents she chose for me were Cake Mix, Gummy Bears, Pink Peeps, Pumpkin Souffle, Christmas Wish, Banana Berry Zucchini, Zucchini Fluff, and Cranberry Apple Marmalade.
Cranberry Apple Marmalade is red on the bottom with a layer of white on the top and red sugar sprinkles. I wasn't expecting a double colored tart and I have to say that I'm very impressed, it looks beautiful.
She also gave me 2 Hello Kitty shaped tarts. One in Sage & Citrus (very strong, smells fresh!) and Berry Scones (very very berry!) Never had cartoon shaped tarts before, I hope I don't get sad when the face melts away :)
I ordered my first loaf in one of my favorite scents ever, Pink Noel!
Not only does it smell great, look at how beautiful it is! Its covered in pink sugar sprinkles, little wax strawberries, and gumdrops (I think they're gumdrops anyway). Presliced in 8 pieces with a pink layer on the bottom, and white layer on the top.
I requested the frosted cookies in Ice Cream Scoop Bread per her recommendation. They look so real it's almost eerie. The details on the frosting are great, as well as the green sugar sprinkles. (I LOVE these kinds of sprinkles). The cold scent is pretty good, so I can't wait to see how much I like them melted.
It would be a mean trick to put them in the kitchen cabinet. My husband would likely mistake them for real cookies, until the first bite that is. :)
I asked Julie to choose the scent for my scoop melt, and she chose Vanilla Pumpkin Pie. It is literally a scoop made of wax, filled with more wax, in more of the same scent, but in tiny pumpkin shapes. It's almost too beautiful to melt. It smells (and looks) just like Thanksgiving to me.
The second freebie I got was the mini pie. It came in Pink Strawberry Shake. Presliced just like the loaf, and covered with pink sprinkles and little wax strawberries.
I love ordering from Wahm's, out of all the items I recieved the only scents I requested was for the loaf (Pink Noel) and cookies (Ice Cream Scoop Bread). I haven't tried any of these scents before, and some of them I wouldn't have ordered on my own, but just like last time, I will likely discover a new favorite and break my normal scented boundaries. Still not sure how much I care for bakery, (except for cake, I love cake) and haven't been brave enough to try anything zucchini scented (although I have heard a lot of people rave about them). But that's the whole reason I ask to be surprised. If you are ever brave enough I would recommend trying it at least once.
I was lucky enough to win one of her comment contests during Bingo game night. So with my next purchase of $25.00 I get a free large slicable pie! So I suppose you can expect to see another Wahm's order in the near future!
