Piping Soap Tutorial

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.

Olive oil 50%

Coconut oil 30%

Sheabutter 10%

Cocoabutter 10%

10 gr beeswax

superfat 5 %

Dessert soaps!

DESSERT SOAPS

I love all variations of cake and when I’m not making soap I’m baking. This months challenge had all my favorite «ingredient» and I had a really great time in my soap cottage planning and making dessert soaps.

Everything you see in my pictures are made of soap, exept from the two rosebuds on top of the macarone and the straws in the cherry. My food item is grounded coffe & oat (in my «almond pie crust»), cocoa powder, and some infused paprika/Olive Oil (to get the right color on my «vanilla custard»). My CP soap is based on Olive Oil, Coconut Oli, Shea Butter & Cocoa Butter

All garnish are made of rebatch soap; roses, berries, pearls, pie crust and leaf  – for best result I used my zester to get that fine grated soap. It’s a good way to use some of that soap-leftovers and it’s also ok to work with when you just get into it. No need for cornstarch just plain soap and some water.

The «pearls» are rolled in Super Pearly White mica.

Color used for berrys; BB’s Merlot Sparkle Mica. 

For making roses, roll out rebacth soap between two plastic sheet and use a round cookie cutter – see pictures!
