(As of this post, the soap is now twice as dark-and delicious)
I intentionally added a white swirl (unscented of course) to this soap because I knew it would turn doo doo brown as it cured. I also added powdered milk to this recipe-my first attempt. I added 2 tbsp to a little bit of my soaping oils, mixed very well, then added that to the main batch at a light trace. It reminds me of a cheesecake brownie, but it smells like a sweet, sticky bun. Since I'm weening myself off of all these sugary delights, I might as well shower with a soap that smell like them instead.
