Saturday ... busy as ...

What a fun day!

Made my first batch of 'No Calorie' chocolate soap.  It's made with my favourite recipe of Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Castor Oil and Cocoa Butter.  The fragrance is 'Italian Spiced Chocolate', so added a little melted dark chocolate to the mix.  Smells divine!

Then I made my first batch of whipped soap.  I think I melted the hard oils too much, as it took ages to thicken, but it was exciting when it did.  I only have a hand held beater ... so I was starting to get over the idea when finally it thickened and the excitement returned.

When the soap was ready, the batch was split and one lot coloured with grape pop mica.  The coloured part was put in silicon cup cakes moulds and then came the fun of learning how to pipe happened!  I'm going to need loads of practise, but I was quite happy with the outcome.

Now the wait ... I'm looking forward to trying this again!

These look fabulous! I must try the whipped soap method one day.. not that I know how to do it? Do you have a tutorial?

I am going to add your blog to my blog list too.

Thanks for the blog list Celine!

Here's where I got my information - Nizzy's Whipped Soap - http://nizzymoulds.com/Whipped/index.htm
I had to use palm oil ... something I was refusing to do, but I hope my supplier is being honest when they say it's from sustainable sources.
