Thank you to Dave and Jude at Aussie Soap Supplies for trying out some of Bramble Berry’s latest additions. They even sent photos and testing notes! If you’re in Australia and you want to buy soapmaking supplies, Dave and Jude have a great company so check them out here.
This is Wasabi fragrance in a discount water batch – just the small sample – works a treat and fragrance is top notch. It’s the blue swirl in the pot soap attached. I actually added an ester (*Smack = dumb) so that was why it was accelerated before I even added the FO!
Snickerdoodle in full gel phase
Jude notes: Buttercream and Snickerdoodle morphs slightly IMHO, still pleasant, but more like Warm Vanilla Sugar. It seems to lose the caramel sugar notes in CP. HOT gel, quite quickly. Discolouration tan/caramel colour. Not unpleasant.
Review from Jude: Rhubarb – will *bite* ? You mean seize? Attached are pics – and yes, it was pretty hot and although I had a 20% discount water, it was workable as you’ll see in the picture. It of course set up, so I would put a warning about water discounting, but it didn’t superheat or anything – its luscious stuff. Oh, BTW, warning warning – I made a bright custard yellow background to stand out against the purple/red of the rhubarb, and when the FO hit it, it turned sort of mucous green!!! I touched up the yellow, but it wasn’t looking good, but CP miracle, its as you see the picture. It hasn’t faded out, but its not quite as milk-shaky now. Delish just the same
