On the Curing Rack: Fruit Loops

Here is the photo you’ve all been waiting for:

Fruit Loops Soap by Great Cakes Soapworks

While it isn’t very swirled inside, it is definitely very colorful! I was too chicken to swirl it in the pot, and I did minimal stirring in the mold because I was afraid the colors might run together too much. Now that I’ve got this batch under my belt, I think I might be able to try it again with a bit more movement. I must say, the Fruit Loops fragrance is quite strong and fresh. The lemon-lime is strongest – and apparently there are notes of peach, raspberry, green apple, cherry and some floral nuances to tone down the lemon and lime as well. Supposed to be little to no discoloration, so hopefully the colors remain vibrant and true.

This will be a limited edition Soap of the Week this summer at the Olathe Farmer’s Market!

    That turned out great! I think it fits the fruit loops well without a bunch of swirling. My soap turned dark brown in the scented portion so I really hope you got a good one that doesn’t discolor. I used a different one before and it didn’t discolor much at all. I love this scent! It’s so fun!

    Thanks, gals! Definitely what you would call psychedelic!! Maybe I should call it “Party in a Bar” instead of Fruit Loops – I like that!

    @Emily – At this time they will only be available locally. If I end up making other batches, then I’ll consider selling them online. 🙂

    I’m thinking of making a batch of soap for the first time, so would you be willing to share your instructions/recipe with this novice? This soap looks fantastic and I can clearly imagine how it must smell!!
