    Cream/whipped soap confusion

    Hey Clarice, Well I did like it at first, but I think I was just pleased with it being my first cream soap effort. But I will not be making it again. Mine too seems to be full of air but rather than a cool whip consistently it’s more like a ‘dessert mousse’ I can barely get a lather from it all...

    Whipped frosting frustration!

    made my first m & p soaps for kiddies and I had so much fun with them! (usually I only do cp) But now I’m struggling to make a little frosting for the top to use as a ‘glue’ to get my toy duckies to stick. It goes from liquid to thick melted marshmallow type disgustingness in 0-2 seconds...

    Cream/whipped soap confusion

    I just wanted to let you know DeeAnna that the cream soap turned out really lovely in the end. I used some just on my hands and they felt super moistured afterwards. I’m really pleased with the results! I have packed away the majority of it in a Tupperware container and shall peek in on it in 4...
