Y’all make me laugh!Heart.
Yesterday I went home at lunch to unmold the first batch of cupcake soaps so I could wash and reuse the molds for round 2! After work, I made between 24-30 new cupcake bases (can't remember exactly how many off the top of my head), did more soap dishes (they never seem to end!), melted a jug of coconut oil to pour into a bowl with a larger opening so its easier to access, and then portioned out three batches worth of my hard oils for my next three rounds of soap!
Tonight I'm hoping to frost my newly made cupcake bases. I have two different scents I'm planning to do for these holiday cupcakes, so tonight I should finish the first scent batch, and then I'll move on to making the second scent batches this weekend!
Pretty! I love the gradients!
That's a nice smooth gradient, very pretty!
Just gorgeous - very pretty colours.Well I cut my soap just now from my wall pour 2 days ago. Not what I was envisioning but I am a HAPPY CAMPER with it!! I can't stop staring at them...View attachment 39973
Maybe you could call it “Ethyl” after the ethyl alcohol in adult beverages. Or ETOH which is the chemical name for ethyl alcohol. That way you don’t have to guess if it’s beer or wine. Of course it probably wouldn’t mean anything to a non-medical type.I've been rummaging through the freezer to find some beer i put in there, for beer soap. Brought out what I thought was it, but now I'm not convinced. I think it might be sparkling rose? I've licked it, but it doesn't taste like either. What to do? Make a beer soap with it anyway and just call it beer soap even though it might be wine?
Yes, I know, I should label my stuff in the freezer.

ETA: Just clicked that it was sitting on a metal rack - get it off there and store it on wood, plastic or paper, lined with paper if need be. Metal can react with the lye.
Most definitely. Preferably something thicker. Have a read of Micky Rat's thread in the Beginner Forum.OH! I had no idea about that!!! I have literally all of my batches sitting on stainless steel baking racks...should I get paper under all of them?
Still making more ugly sweater embeds. I must be getting better because last night's embeds were extremely ugly!
Making another batch of ugly sweater soaps (I have a total of 4 to do so I'm halfway done!) if I get my mold washed.
Making a batch of sugar scrub - still trying to decide on the fragrance though...
Calling a lady about a three day show in October.
Nice texture!I went to the shop and bought a bottle of beer. I'm sure they thought I was mad buying one bottle of beer at 11am! Anyway, my soap is made and now setting up:
