I got to soaping today. I wanted to try and use up my tallow. I don't think I'll purchase more tallow. I'll probably just stick with vegetable fats and oils. But I had some tallow left. I still have a small amount left. I have some lard left over in the fridge as well. I'll have to weight those out and make a batch that uses those up. I have a small amount of palm kernel oil as well. I also wanted to use up rice bran oil. I used about 2 lbs, but still have about 1lb left. Rice Bran Oil is supposed to be a good alternative to Olive Oil. But I personally didn't notice a huge difference so I'll just stick with OO. I'm trying to narrow down the oils and butters that I have lying around. I'm trying to simplify!
I wanted to make another soap cake. But this time it won't be a round cake, more like a rectangular log cake. So I poured 1 inch into 2 of my loaf molds. Tomorrow I'll unmold them and "frost" them. I mixed Orange Peel FO and Champagne FO. So they will be Mimosa cakes. I had a little extra today so I made a couple of cupcakes.
I also used Love Spell FO to make another soap loaf. I divided the batter into 6 and mixed them with 6 mica colors which I plopped into the mold a little at a time. I also embedded white hearts and stars. I'm really excited to see what this soap will look like when I cut it!
