I found these 2 pound loaf molds on Wholesale Supplies Plus (and they ship for free!) and they have these sturdy edges so the soap doesn't get all lean-y and lopsided.

I made this batch of olive-scented soap-cpop of course. It's made mainly with olive and avocado oils. This is a very rustic-looking soap. I'm not going to touch it at all. I like how it looks.
