I was thinking your kitchen must smell yummy ~ but now I know it does! Sorry to hear about the crack but at least it's a sweet smelling mishapIssues and observations of my soapy cupcakes.
The chocolate fudge fo is supposed to discolor to a dark brown. That is great, but I added cocoa powder anyway. After I poured the base it is a light beige color. So I hope it darkens to match the fragrance.
I couldn't understand why the raspberry fo seemed so strong. Well here the container I measured it in had a hairline crack and that fo was all over the kitchen island. So I had to clean that up and weigh out some more.
It took me so long to pipe the raspberry soap with my sultan tip that the lavender soap was too thick to do what I wanted with my 6B tip. It was the perfect thickness for soaping roses, but not the right fragrance.
I have always frozen my goat's milk and used it to make the lye solution to prevent scotch ~ but lately I've been curious about trying it this way and adding it to my oils & butters to see if it makes it any creamier or maybe adding a bit of powdered GM to boost the creaminess or adding more shea butter so many possibilitiesGoats Milk soap. I used NG Misbehavin FO. It turned yellow when added but has a nice dark cream color now. I haven't bevelled or steamed the bars yet. I really like the fragrance. I half my liquid using distilled water to dissolve my lye, and the other half room temp goats milk that I stick blend in my oils before adding the lye solution. I find this method works best for me.

That happens to me more often than I care to admit! If I had a dollar for every time I told my family it tastes better than it looks I wouldn't need a lottery win!
