I love the way this little gingerbread man soap turned out! I’ve been obsessed with making round soaps lately, and I have been on a Pringles-buying spree trying to collect enough cans to make lots of round soap. So far we have eaten Pringles cookies, Pringles brownies, Pringles chicken and Pringles-topped macaroni and cheese. I’m only kidding, I haven’t had to stoop that far yet…but I have the recipes, and I’m not afraid to use them.
For this soap, I used the 74g-size Pringles containers. The gingerbread embeds were about 3.5 inches long after they were trimmed, so stood about ¾ of the way up these cans. I filled the container with just enough soap to cover the embeds, and I was able to get 4 soaps out of each snack-sized Pringles can. The gingerbread men in the soap will still darken a bit, matching the color of the embed on the left.
The soap smells so yummy, it’s fragranced with Caramel Apple and the gingerbread men are fragranced with Gingersnap, the last of my Gingersnap :(
I have a few gingerbread men embeds left, so I am going to try to embedding them into some MP soap; I haven’t embedded CP soap into MP soap yet, so this will be a good experiment.
I haven’t been able to get cleanly cut edges on my round soap yet, they seem to crumble regardless of whether or not I use sodium lactate. I end up having to bevel them, which I don’t particularly enjoy...any tips for getting smoother cut edges on round soaps?
