This came out smelling absolutely delicious smelling. I wish it was edible! I used it with the MP Goats Milk Soap from Bramble Berry and the Raspberry Porter & Hot Chocolate fragrances also from the site. I LOVE how it came out. So smelly good.... *grins*

Here's a photo of the before, and a slice from after. Smiley Was just testing it out so it wasn't a huge amount I made - but I will definitely be trying this again later with Strawberry scent with chocolate, and maybe some of the other ones I have. So delicious.

Edit: And does anyone have a better way of cutting soap besides a knife? :\ I have a block of 25lbs of Goat Milk MP soap, and I have the hardest time cutting away pieces to use. And even with little pieces. A lot of the soap I see on here is cut really nicely... so I was wondering what ideas you have or what you use?

Looks good!

You can buy a mitre box at a hardware store and that makes slicing straight pretty easy.

That would work for the smaller ones, but I also have a giant block of MP soap from Bramble Berry... xD I can't figure out how to cut it ;_; and it's driving me crazy. I tried a knife, but it took FOREVER still. Sad

You mean just to chop pieces off to melt down? I've never found a really good way Sad Some people use a wire but I haven't been able to find or make one that had good enough grips on the end so I could use it very effectively. I pretty much just hack at my giant block until I get enough off. Maybe someone else has a good idea.

That looks good enough to eat. I wish we could smell the nice stuff over the internet.

So, hacking it is... xD I thought about the wire idea - but alas I have no idea about grips. Might have to try some stuff out. I have realized that a block of soap will break a steak knife... hahahahahaha. Go figure. Tongue

and yeah, I wish we could smell stuff over the interwebs too. Smiley cause the soap smells so good.

What about getting some of the wire cutters people use for cutting clay? Or those cheese slicers that are wire?

If you plan on making more and more soap that way and need to cut it you could always buy a Pizza Cutter the kind that is one long blade with two handles they work great for cutting large projects like that. I use one for cutting fudge and chocolate bars and such from my 16 x16 pan I paid $20 for mine online about three years ago and really it was worth it. I make homemade pizza a lot and it's great to have.

Love the soap ... it was like I could almost smell it. Cheesy

Love the swirls!  I've never had any luck with clay wire, to be honest... I just go at it with a big sharp knife--a winning approach in any craft project.  Grin  Bet it smells great!
