I never thought I'd see another "soaper" idea that I'd not seen before, but MY GOODMESS!! And to think, I've been embedding FOREVER and this NEVER crossed my mind!!  

>beats foread on floor in embarrassment<

Something I've had to resort to when trying to get the bitty embedding soaps out of non-soap molds -- put 3 inches of hotter-than-you-can-touch water (put it on the stove if you have to), then dunk the soap-containing mold into that hot water (up to the top edge, don't let the water splash over the top of the mold) for one-one thousand one, one-one thousand-two, then pull it out and immediately slam the mold upside-down on your countertop/cookie sheet/cutting board/whatever.  If the soaps are still stuck, slam it once more.  If the soaps are still stuck, your water isn't hot enough for the thickness of the mold *or* you need to dunk the mold for another second or two.  

CAUTION -- Err on the side of caution with the temperature of the water because if it's too hot and the soaps melt too much, they will lose detail when the wax resolidifies on your countertop.  Err on the side of caution until you get a feel for how hot your water needs to be for YOUR molds.  

Happy "Soaping"!

oh along the lines of the advent calendar moulds, you could make your own calendar (next year of course  Wink) with a soap behind each door- seen as they're single use soaps you could use a different one each day!

You guys must've gone crazy on eBay since this got posted because I just looked for an hour and couldn't find a single mini-mold I thought was cute!

Try cake and candy supply stores.  We have several near where I live and they carry all sorts of molds in different sizes.  Also, many of them now have websites.  Just do a search for cake and candy supplies or candy molds.  Should come up with a ton of them.  :-)
