Go Fudge Yourself!


I promised myself that I would not wait until the middle and end of fall to make new soaps because they take so dang long to cure! I've got lye. I've got fragrance oils, and I've got soaping oils (a minor miracle that I have all three at once!) so I'm on a mission: to have at least 10 new batches made by the end of summer. That may sound like a lot to the big batch pro, but that's a major task for me. I've already got 3 down: the orange and ginger, Bad-Ass Cousin, and now Go Fudge Yourself! I am feeling this soap ya'll! It really smells like fudge, and I just want to bite a big ole chunk out of it. I made this batch really simply: olive, palm kernel, coconut, and castor oils. I was trying to give it a cool marble effect, but my swirls leave little to the imagination, so we have these "bald' patches. The color of this soap will progressively get darker. I wonder if the bald patch will grow in. I left that part un-scented intentionally in hopes that it wouldn't go dark. Who knows? Who cares? I just want this one to be ready. I've reserved my own special bar so when I have company, I can tell them "Go fudge yourself...."
