Snowcakes Soap (semi-whipped)

This batch of soap is a dupe for the wildly popular Lush fragrance "Snow Cake".   The soap was suppose to discolor to a light beige but I really wanted it to stay white, so I used Titanium Dioxide. 

To doubly ensure the whiteness, I also used more hard oils than usual and whipped them up some with an electric hand mixer before adding the liquid oils.  For the "stars" I did a second batch of soap that was completely whipped and pipep them on using Wilton 2D & 21 decorating tips.

While purchasing my tips from Michael's I also grabbed a few flexible rubber molds that are perfect for leftover soap batter.  I can make these cool samples to give away to my awesome customers!

As you can see, the 2D tip is my favorite.

Lime Coconut Pie Soap

I was browsing the net and came across this super yummy recipe for Lime Coconut Cheesecake.

  Right away I start thinking of the soaping possibilities.  I rarely plan batches of soap out, but I worked on this one for a couple of days before settling on a design.  At one point I even considered pulling out my spring form pan do try to mimic the actual dessert. I decided to go with the loaf though...

This batch is scented with a non-discoloring Key Lime Pie (Southern Soapers) fragrance oil. I had some leftover end cuts from a batch of Island Coconut (Brambleberry) CP Soap and since that batch did discolor to a pretty goldenish color, it was perfect for the toasted coconut required for the recipe. I  used Wilton's 2D tip to pipe some whipped CP soap for the whipped cream portion.  Finally, I topped it with real lime zest for garnish.

There was even enough left over to  get 2 soap cupcakes.

Bamboo & Sugar Cane Soap

Awww!  This fragrance is an intoxicating blend of Cane Sugar, Roses, and Jasmine with burst of Citrus.  I love it.  It's the perfect combination of Sweet & Fresh. 

There's a thin layer of ash on top, but this time I actually don't mind.  I like how it made the colors lighter.
