Another fun challenge, and the best of all – we got to play with different type of piping techniques. I have done a lot of (cake) piping but I have never used Russian piping tips, so I decided to try them for this soap challenge. I chose to do roses with two different rose nozzels. I also used a smal leaf nozzel and a tiny calligraphy nozzel. The idea was to make a «basket» and fill it with roses. I guess I got carryed away with the flowers, and leaf – well, I had to use all the soap in my pipingbags, or….?
I used a knitting needle to bend the rose petals so they wouldn’t all look the same.
This is my first attempt at soap piping and I must say I enjoyed «slow soaping» for a change.
I used my standard soap recipe and added some beeswax. Soaping at 38 degrees celcius to thick trace, then poured the soap in my pipingbag and put them to rest for aprox one hour. As recomended I didn’t use any fragrance in the flowers. The «basket» is scented with BB’s Black Amber And Lavender FO.
