A friend of mine came over and we made soap last week. We experimented with several different kinds of soaps and styles of soaps.
We added lavendar buds (that turned brown).
We made Amber Must, Lavender and Pina Colada scents. (The last was my favorite, the first was hers.)
We used metal molds and plastic ones.
We made soap 'cupcakes' using honey scent for the 'cupcake' and mixing pure cocoa for the frosting. (They look so real!)
We swirled in special soap pearly powder. (I LOVE that powder!)
We mixed coloring into half the soap 'custard' and swirled it in. (Pretty)
We added straight color to the already poured soap and swirled it in. (I'm afraid we are going to wind up with purple hands when we use these bars. Oops.)
The best part was that we found the most awesome soap recipe that is easier than making most dinners...you don't even have to monkey with temperatures! (Score!)
Scratch that- the best part was the hours of laughter coming from the kitchen.
That is always the best part.
