    I tried making what would look like a little cactus heart topped with a cactus flower on top for the embed. I think it came out pretty good! Was my first time doing diagonal layers too so I really put myself to the challenge on this one! Smells good too so win win! :D It’s too bad we can’t share videos on here. I been having so much fun making these cutting videos! Lol!

    It’s so cute and I love the little prickly detail you did on the top.

    LOL! No worries Nanooo. Now I'm even more impressed knowing the flower top wasn't connected to the heart embed. Very clever of you! I think what draws my eye most is the dark green and pink contrast with dark green embed in the lighter pink. Very striking!

    A Very cute soap--I love the prickly top, perfect colors too...real cactus and tuna colors! A tuna is what prickly pear cactus fruit is called, I believe.

    Well holy smokes, @Nanette. I've lived in AZ for 40 years surrounded by prickly pear and have NEVER heard anyone refer to the fruit as tuna. Learn something new everyday! People in my area just call them cactus apples. I can see the jelly and jam shelves now "Get your local Tuna Jelly here!":rolling:

    Strange but true...all the things we dont know...scary sometimes. I speak for myself, not trying to be snarky at all.


    The word 'tuna' is Spanish for the fruit of a plant. That's why it's used to describe the fruit of the prickly pear cactus [Opuntia spp]. The word for 'tuna fish' in Spanish is 'atun'. :thumbs:
