I thought I would be making my challenge soap in the new house, but our move in date got pushed back a week. :D Looks like I get to unpack my supplies and make one more soap in this kitchen after all

So I made my first attempt yesterday and the batter accelerated so quickly I don't think it is going to come out anything like I wanted it too. I unmold later but, I see another attempt in my future.

edited to add one bar sort of looks like I envisioned so if my second attempt fails I have one bar to enter.

M&P would be great for this challenge! Per the challenge outline:

You can use any MP that you prefer - I don't know alot about MP so I defined it as "does not need to be lye based soap"... I probably should have just said MP :D

my eyes must have glazed over that part. Most challenges don’t specify but occasionally there is a technique that doesn’t work with m&p.

Omg, I love your challenge theme! I've been under the weather and my family decided to fall apart a week before Thanksgiving (not horrible, just injuries and illness), I havent made more soap. I wish I could've entered my dragon (GOT) from great cakes challenge yrs ago! Ahh! I've read so many books now, however, I can think of a million other ideas now. I dont have it in me but I will dream about it and watch this challenge!!!

First and probably only attempt has been made! I'm running low on most of my ingredients and need to reorder, I'm not sure they would arrive before the challenge closes. Let's see if my vision and my execution are anywhere near each other.

My new soaping scale arrived today!! (At least a week earlier than I expected) so I need to start thinking if I'm happy with what I have or if I want to have another try:D

Yeah... not at all happy with my design for the book I had chosen. Last night I came up with a new idea and think I have enough ingredients for one more batch of soap. I'm going to make one more batch tomorrow and hope for the best!
