Ok. The bubble bars. Just before Christmas every soap group was all about these things. What are they???
And I love the colours of your soap bars! They be fancy! What are they? How do you use them? How do you make them?
I want lemon curd. Since I don’t have the patience for making lemon curd, I’m just going to make a key lime cheesecake! Less stirring.
I’ll only stir for eyeliner.February 7, 2017 at 5:41 am #19873SimplySheParticipant
I never found much stirring was involved. It comes together quick, the pastry part is what I hate….finicky 🙁 . I believe I scratched a recipe down off of soapqueen and used micas to colour. Just the tiniest sprinkle. I have a friend that is closing out a health food store and got a whopping load of cream of tartar from her. Its one of the main ingredients. I used this basic recipe, coloured it my way and used essential oils to fragrance. https://www.soapqueen.com/bath-and-body-tutorials/lovespell-solid-bubble-bath-diy/February 7, 2017 at 6:07 am #19874
Seriously? The last time I made lemon curd it was whisking for what felt like ever. But, it could be the stove. I’ve said it before,we’ve got two settings, flame thrower and off.
So looking at the link! New things! Tra la la la!February 7, 2017 at 8:20 am #19880
What is modified Tapioca powder? Is that the same as Tapioca starch? And I don’t know about anywhere else, but cream of tartar is expensive here! I have a tiny one ounce jar and it was over $10! So, that would make bubble bars reeeeeeeeally expensive to make. Didn’t SQ’s recipe call for 7 ounces?
I thought lemon curd was a lot of whisking too. 10 minutes seems like forever when your whisking😫February 7, 2017 at 5:44 pm #19898
Yeah. Modified tapioca powder is tapioca starch. No biggie. I don’t get the weirdness either. Bubble bars are just…neat. Bubble bath without the liquid spills.February 21, 2017 at 9:50 pm #20496
Omg, Ariane just made a new cupcake soap video. I am in hungry but need it mode.

I saw where she had posted this but I haven’t watched it yet. I was catching up on Marie’s videos that I haven’t watched. Just looking at the picture made me want cupcakes….and banana bread….another strawberry cream Ritter bar sounds good too…..and must try Tim Tams…..I must be hungry!!!February 21, 2017 at 11:15 pm #20498
I want to make this. You will need to help. Lmao. And I like the music.February 22, 2017 at 6:54 am #20500
Wow, that’s really pretty soap! I’m going to come back and watch the whole thing after I get the little missy off to school. Is that piping on the top? I can’t do piping. I can’t even frost a cake! I suck at cake making, well, not making a cake but putting the frosting on a cake. This skill somehow eludes me……and, I appreciate the compliment towards my soap making skills, but I have yet to make a soap that looks like that! Just sayin’…..I, still a newbie too when it comes to designs in soap. Sooooo a newbie!!February 22, 2017 at 10:51 am #20521
Yeah. Me too. But maybe with soap it might be easier. I can only hope.February 22, 2017 at 2:37 pm #20527
Piping soaps is pretty easy. And, it’s VERY forgiving. These were my first two and probably will be my last other than Christmas soaps in the future. I’m not really a fan of how it looks. In the mold I think pipped soaps look amazing. But once cut, I’ve rarely seen piped soaps that I like the look of.
And when it comes to cup cake soaps? I loathe them! They are so hard to hold onto in the shower and a lot of the time the pipped top falls off and it’s a pain. I do get the selling feature of them ad if you’ve got the candied fragrance oils I get it.
I bought some new piping tips to practice with as I want to make some speciality embeds.February 22, 2017 at 7:40 pm #20538
Ooh, they’re gorgeous! The pearled colour ones just made me want swirly soap! But I love the look. I’m glad to know there are down sides. I’m so new, I have no clue.February 22, 2017 at 9:24 pm #20551
I see Barb’s point. I’ve often wondered about how well a piped soap does, functionally speaking. I don’t like awkward shaped soaps. Give me a good square, rectangle, oval, or round soap and I’m happy! And smooth! I’ve got a wavy cutter that I sometimes use to cut soaps and I’m not a huge fan of that texture either.February 22, 2017 at 9:25 pm #20553
Your piped soaps are beautiful, though, Barb! You have such great talent in Soapmaking!! You make such beautiful creations!February 22, 2017 at 9:27 pm #20554
Lol. I still like it. I don’t mind oddish shapes. As long as it’s holdable. If it’s not, we got a problem. I also think I realize I like measured piping. So things are cut evenly between the piping. Yeah, I’m picky. 😛
