Experiment Challenge for You
I have an experiment for you or call it a challenge. I challenge you to make presentable cold process soap in a week. Think it’s impossible?
The next time you make your normal cold process soap cut a slice off and leave it. Just leave and count the days until you feel you can use it. I should take about a week.
When you use it, does it bubble? Is it hard? The thicker the soap cookie the longer it will take to cure, but the thinner it is, the shorter the time.
Now, the next time you are under a deadline for a gift, or a time crunch, make a soap cookie.
Use a cookie cutter and push it into that slice of soap. Do it a few times and you have many gifts. (Embellishments are a bonus, like decorating a great tasting cookie.)
If you take this a bit further and prepare to make soap cookies by making soap dough you will have many soap cookies, just like a batch of cookies.
This is a quick way to share cold process soap with friends and family that collapses those 4-6 weeks of normal cure time for a bar of soap.
If you want to see more ways to make soap cookies, take a look at this video and others I’ve made.
