So, inspired by Mandyhello's cappucino soap, I decided to bite the bullet - and I made a Vanilla/Chocolate soap. I'm so happy with the way it turned out. There's ground Double Dutch Chocolate Coffee on the top. It looks and smells like cake.

i think i should have put it on its' side to cut through it - the coffee sort of 'dragged' down the surface of the soap. I really like this technique, though.

we grated up a few bars of leftover soap (unscented in this case), then added a few spritzes of water. We took a little bit, squished it a few times to make it pliable and cohesive, then rolled them into little balls. I poured the dark brown layer, put a random layer of balls on top, then poured the white layer over top. It was fun!
