Smells like...

Hmmm, wonder what I made this time? :) I'll reveal the mystery soap in my next post. I'm really happy with how this turned out! Hope everything goes according to plan *fingers crossed*. It smells pretty :D

This is a close-up of a chocolate scrub I made for Dan's aunt. It has chocolate soap pieces and a sprinkling of cappuccino mica although I went a little insane with the cocoa powder. It soaked up the oil and went a little hard. Softens up under warm water but I think I'll just go easy on cocoa next time :)

Today, the one day I decide to spend outdoors in the city away from my busy schedule and it rains on me :(

Oh, well! I get to spend another day out tomorrow. Please, please don't rain!

That soap looks divine! Yes, cocoa is known for drying. I learned that in cake decorating class when someone added cocoa to their frosting and it hardened up and it couldn't be "piped". I also learned it the hard way with my bath bombs. They all cracked. :(

Thank you! I was hoping the base would be whiter :(

I've made bath bombs with cocoa and they cracked too! To counter the problem I wet the powders with oil instead of water and no cracking :)
