A Happy and Delicious Accident


Sometimes I flake out while I am working, especially if I am making several soap varieties at once. Yesterday, I meant to make a batch of Java Lava, a lovely mocha soap, but after I blended the cocoa powder into the raw soap, I quickly realized that I was out of that fragrance. What to do, what to do? I had to tap into the creative side of my brain and come up with something ... fast! I decided to make a Bundt cake soap, lightening part of the soap after the cook for a creamy feel and scenting it with a chocolaty Irish Cream. The result? One of my best pieces! I will definitely need to put a caution label on these soaps during my weekend market.

Hi Kim,

That soap looks very edible. Quick thinking on changing this to a Bundt Soap. You sure should be a disclaimer "Not to eat." What a masterpiece. You should feel proud of this art work! I would really like to know the comments you receive about it at the market and from others.

Thanks! I think the most common reaction is that sniffers need to go get some chocolate cake after smelling the soap :)
