I see some soap loafs that have beautiful designs on the top that look like the swirls on a frosted cake (and I'm talking about texture, not colors).

How is that effect achieved? It looks great.

And has anyone ever heard of soap frosting? What is it and where do you get it?

About the swirls...I used to get these "peeks" all the time...I pour at a very thick trace and use a rubber spatula and move it through the soap like frosting a cake.

I like my soap flat so I pour at a thin trace now :lol:

I wait until thick trace, then take a plastic spatula and "flip" the top with the wide side. It pulls up a little soap and makes curly "Q" tops. I'll take a picture next time I pour a log of soap.
