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!
