Waiting to u mold and cut a loaf of soap is the equivalent or worse of waiting for Santa to come on Christmas morning!

And can be just as disappointing when you don't get what you wished for! Still neat but not what was expected.

Really, it's the worst part (even more so than cleaning up). It's weird that I have plenty of patience when it comes to curing but have mushed many an edge by peeking too soon. :)

This will be me when I retire. Right now I make the soap on the weekend and sometimes it is the next weekend before I even think about unmolding. My job takes too much out of an old lady.

It's very tempting indded. I made the horrible mistake of cutting early on my last batch ... and ugh. It was kind of a mess. Super mad at myself for not waiting another day or two.

All the dang time. I have three loaf molds so each time I make soap I make three batches and fill every mold. The anticipation to unmold is not only to see what's inside but also to soap more!
