Out of these 454k notes how many of them waited for the number to reach to zero?
you know how scared i was when it was almost zero
wait for zero
I got fucking scared and held my breath when it hit zero then i read it and was like “IM DROPPING EVERYTHING AND REBLOGGING”
I have been admiring all the past challenges and entries of the Great Cakes Soapworks Challenges and I finally was able to remember to sign up!
The challenge for October is to make Petal Soap, which is inspired by a cake decorating technique. Through a little research I decided I wanted to try something similar to a Ombre Petal decorating style. I love how soft the colors move acorss the cakes. Can I make a soap that looks like that? We shall see!
I decided to try to make my soap look like rose petals. I have had a Victorian Rose fragrance sitting on my shelf forever, as I was a little nervous about using a floral fragrance, since I know they move fast and I am new to all this, I need time to work, swap up spills, move the hair our of my face with my elbow etc.
I completely cut my recipe in half and added my fragrance oil to my “base” and it started ricing, so I quickly had to pour that into my mold and it firmed up rather quickly.
I made the second batch, my “petals” batch and took Amy’s advice and did not add any fragrance oil. I am so glad I did not, I had plenty of time to work!
I have to be honest, this technique was a challenge to me because I tend to soap like I paint, kinda all over the place and this technique takes some planning and finesse. But once I got the flow going, it was quite fun! And I was happy with how my Victorian Rose Petal Soap came out :)
