Ok, was it pukey yellow? Or or nice dark gingerbread color? I am getting confused lolKat said:Paprika works really well for that gingerbread look. I used 2 1/2 tbsp of Paprika for a 3 lb batch. I added at light trace, stirred with a whisk to incorporate, this took a few minutes, I didn't want clumps of the spice, then I used my stick blender, and good good trace, then poured it in a wooden mold. I used 3 oz peppercorn fo, and it turned the soap a pukey (is that a word?) yellow, but the batch looks awesome. A nice dark pumpkin/gingerbread color, with itty bitty specks all thru.
