Frosted Fruit Loops

Have you noticed how I dilly daddle if I'm not excited about my soap? I made this last Wednesday, cut it this last Saturday, and took pictures on Monday. This soap is just OK. It smells good and I'm sure the piped colors will be pretty once I use the soap and wash the ash off. For now, there really isn't much to see here. I think the soap will darken a bit more still. That is the influence of the frosted lime cupcake fragrance in it.




I love all the extra little soaps I made from the leftover colors!



Be sure to go check out all of the other participants.

I think I've come up with a plan for my alcohol soap. I'm pretty sure it's going to seize on me but I'm going to try anyway! My husband is determined that I try. I'm being heavily influenced to try one thing in particular. So try I will!

I think it looks great, Holly--not the kind to dilly-dally about! I like the pastel blended colors of the tops. Reminds me of mother-of-pearl.

Holly,

Your soap looks lovely and I like the sparkly top.
I sometimes use sodium lactate but not very often. I find you have to be careful with ratios.

I'm totally the same way!! I dilly-dallied on cutting the Mokalata soap, and had some issues which will be revealed on Saturday. :P I still think your piping turned out really gorgeous - like mother of pearl is an excellent comparison!

That is a pretty top! I just saw a mother of pearl soap dish. It was the real shell with holes drilled in the bottom for drainage. They would look lovely together. Your little soaps are very cute too.

I think it is beautiful! The piping is so nicely done and I totally agree with the mother-of-pearl comparison :)

Thank you! I can see the mother of pearl comparison. I love how soap makers can see the beauty in all soaps. :-) I can't wait to see your soap Amy!
