Here’s a peek of my Mint Chocolate Chip swirls from yesterday. See the blog post HERE if you missed it. The soap is pretty soft at this point (Olive Oil, 5% superfat, no gel phase) but they were still easy to unmold from the ‘World’s Best’ Baltic Birchwood Mold. These “sweet” soaps will be ready to use in 4-6 weeks!
On a painfully sad note, there was a casualty during the unmolding process. I was so giddy and excited about my swirls that the soap just bobbled out of my hand. I guess this will be the “tester” soap. Sigh…poor little guy. He didn’t deserve this!
We’re having the Bramble Berry Bridge Building Contest today + BBQ Fundsday! I can’t wait to have a rematch and hopefully redeem myself (and my popsicle stick bridge building abilities).
