On the Curing Rack: COCO MINT Soap Cake Slices

My experience with the Rainbow Cake, got me itching to try my hand at soap cake making again.  For so long, I've been content just admiring the beautiful creations from other soap-makers.  Once you get the hang of it, it's really not that hard.

Hot Cocoa with a delicious blend of Hazelnut, Toffee and Vanilla with a cooling swirl of sweet Peppermint Leaf

I haven't had a lot of success finding a chocolate that I love, so this time I blended one and I'm very happy with the results.  I blended several oils in there but the main key was the touch of Vanilla. It warmed the chocolate and gave it just the right amount of buttery notes.
 

The brown portion was colored using Hershey's cocoa powder with a pinch of black oxide to keep it dark.  This green is a mica from Nurture Soap Supplies and it is a little tricky.  I've used it several times now and find that it starts green, then slowly turns to a odd grayish/green before slowly coming back to itself.  So, if you're using it for the first time and experience some fading, don't be scared.  The color will most likely return during the cure.
