  • With an ingredient list that includes cinnamon, oatmeal, cranberries and chocolate, Doug Burkett's handmade soap recipes might be mistaken for a dessert.

    But while the soap smells appetizing, the taste will still likely discourage youngsters from saying words they shouldn't.

    Burkett, who was taught how to make soap from scratch by his aunt Bannie when he was six, has nearly 50 years of experience in making soap.

    Some of his earliest memories are of being in his aunt's house watching his family make soap.
