This is what happens if you don’t do a clear pour first. It’s difficult to push the citrus slices firmly through to the bottom of the white soap, causing sloppy looking citrus slices.
If you do the full steps, with a clear soap pour first, this is what your soap will turn out to look like:
Starting tomorrow, I’ll be finishing up the Citrus Slice Tutorial with the way I stumbled upon to create realistic looking citrus soaps.
No, I haven’t seen America’s Test Kitchen. It sounds amazing! And you’re right – it’s a lot of work to perfect many recipes (as any small home crafter knows) but half the fun is in sharing the journey.

Trial and error- the only way to go. Great job, Anne-Marie. Have you ever seen America’s Test Kitchen? They cook something using every imaginable variation until they come across the best possible way to make something. Then they explain why the other methods fell short….just like you did. (they also have cookbooks – I love’m) I like to know WHY I should do something a particular way. Thanks for all the insight into the other methods you tried along your journey to success.
This is great! Thanks so much for doing it!
I have been anxiously awaiting the details on how you did those realistic looking soap slices. It has been interesting seeing the process you went through. I have been trying to figure out how you did it. Will just have to be patient for one more day.
