Yesterday I made the coolest soap. The bottom layer has coffee with coffee and biscotti fragrances. I also imbeded light brown biscotti looking sticks. The second layer I used titanium dioxide and sprinkled cinamon on top to make it look like the whipped cream on top of my favorite starbucks.

The problem: My white layer didn't fully gel!! The middle part did, but most of it didn't. What do I do? Can I force it to gel by sticking it in a warm oven? Or do I have to just wait for it to get hard on its own?

I'm so bummed...this was such a masterpiece = (
I have read that you can force gel in the oven several days after you initially make it. Worth a shot!
Thanks for the info! I just popped it in the oven and am crossing my fingers and toes :D
