tangerine

It's been a while since I made round bars. I had stopped using my pvc pipe mold because I'm cutting challenged...my round bars ended up uneven-out of the whole loaf, maybe two looked really nice and even.  I've since been using a cheese slicer and getting good results (was using a soap/pastry cutter before). Here are the cut pics:

  1. Beautiful Tangerine soaps, Kalla! I love the peachy-pink with the swirl of white. The round shape is very pretty, too. I haven't tried using PVC pipe as a mold yet, but I like the idea. Glad you found a cutting method that works for you - I'm cutting-challenged, too, so the cheese slicer tip is good to know.

    1. thank you Jenny! I got my cheese slicer for free, otherwise I probably wouldn't have thought to use one for cutting soap. But the one I use has a marble base, with the swing-down wire slicer.

  2. Very pretty. At least you can get your soap in the pipe. I can't figure out how to cap the bottoms of the PVC pipe. I have 2 of them and I have caps for them but when I put the caps on I cant get them off without using a hammer.. lol

    1. thanks Kim! I don't bother with a cap...I take a plastic garbage bag and cut part of it the size I need, fold it to make it thicker..and then tape it to an end. I've been using wide painters tape and it's been working great...I cover up all of the bottom (the garbage bag) with the tape, then go around the base of the pvc pipe to seal it off so no soap batter leaks up from the bottom. Then after I pour the soap, I put the pipe in a box. hth :)
