There's no accounting for taste
I have also experimented with whipped soap in muffin forms and soap on a rope (that was all the rage in the 70's for those who remember back that far :) as well as piping soap from a piping bag used for icing cakes and using a round cake tin to make cake slices. All of these look good in their own way and I guess I'm still looking for a look that is mine, so to speak.
somehow I think that swirling looks better with the clear crisp colours that I am a bit reluctant to use. But maybe it'll look exactly the way I like it, we'll see.
But to get back to the heading of this post, I thought it was a bit amusing when my husband walked past the rebatch leftovers that I had hurriedly made into balls and went: Oh wow, those look really good, did you just make those? I really like those!
Huh, there really is no accounting for taste.
The photos: Soap balls. Very easy to make, but they look nice in this French iron soapdish from Comptoir de famille. I have been crocheting a border for bedlinen like I remember from my childhood. The other photo: This soapcake is very basic and perhaps not the prettiest, but it was fun to make. I am collecting cake dishes for the wedding. this one I bought new and it is a bit small.
