On the Curing Rack - "Sweet Thang" handmade Soap

Oh man does this soap smell gooood!  

London Lemon Curd whipped with pure Sugar Cane on a delectable Shortbread crust

This was my first time soaping this fragrance and I wasn't sure how bad it was discolor.  So far, almost 2 weeks into the cure, the bars are a dark beige color.  Which isn't bad at all.  I thought they might turn fully brown.  This color reminds me more of a dessert crust.

Now, I know that I have a brand new jar of yellow oxide, but couldn't find it.  So, I used Bramble Berry's Fizzy Lemonade to color the topping and Wilton's 1M piping tip. 

I swear, when I was taking these photos, the bluish evening light made them seem to glow!
Kind of weird, lol.  I wonder if they actually will glow under florescent light.  I'll have to check that out.
I think adding a wispy white swirl in the base will help that yellow swirl pop more next time...


  1. Gorgeous soaps, Kia! They look good enough to eat! I'll bet they smell great, too. I love BB's neon oxides. Great job on the piping!

    1. Thanks Jenny! I love how reliable BB's neons are. No problems with them at all.

  2. I love your soap and your topping ist wonderful!
