tiramisu soap – my first try in soap making

so here it comes, my first try in soap making. a lovely tiramisu soap. it was so hard not to try and eat the stuff :)

this is what i did: dived my melt and pour soap into two parts.
part 1 – mixed it with coffee oil, coconut oil and brown food coloring
part 2 – mixed it with vanilla oil, coconut oil, one drop of yellow food coloring and real amaretto

then i poured it in layers into a cake tin. on the top i sprinkled a little cocoa.

it just smells incredible!

and this is what it looks like:
