What to do with all of the excess soap from the cut outs? It’s a shame to let anything go to waste.
Make sure you have a wide, flat mold available to pour the soap into. I like to use silicone baking molds because the soap pops out easily. Hold one color in each hand and pour a little into the mold. Since the mold is so shallow, the soap will harden quickly. Pick up the third color and start alternativng colors until the pattern starts appearing.
Pour thinly enough to ensure you can easily push through the soap. These soaps end up unique and different. Each flower has a varied color pattern and look.
Check back tomorrow to learn about embedding.
It’s a toss-up – they’re both totally cute options but labor-wise, the swirled marbled soaps are less labor.
Michelle, the Etsy founder totally is cute! =)
And Ms. Cakespy, we’ve had kids bite into soap before and it’s been a very unpleasant surprise for them. =)

Definitely think I like the swirled flowers better then the filled flowers, they look so unique.
Ooh, looks like you’re cooking up some sweet concoctions here! They look delicious (although I might be unpleasantly surprised by the taste). 😉
I love these and the cut out ones. I hear the Esty founder was on OW. I missed it but I hear he is REAL cute! and young.

Yep, a great idea to do with the little pieces. Now why didn’t I think of that. Thanks!
I think I like these swirly ones even better than the cut-out ones!
