Hubby's co-worker is expecting a baby girl in four months, and what gift is better than 100% olive oil handmade soap?
Since I've been planning on making swiss roll soaps, I figured that I could give it a try. It should be easy, right? After all, it's just rolling up CP soap.
Oh I couldn't be more wrong!
This is my first attempt. My original plan is simply to make 2 layers and roll them up - one with cocoa powder ("chocolate cake") and one with pink clay ("raspberry cream"). But they're both too thick for rolling, and the end result doesn't look like a swiss roll at all. Rather, it looks like ... I can't even describe what it looks like.
And then there's my second attempt.
I've learned my lesson: keep the layers thin and wait for the soap to set up properly before rolling.
They look a lot like swiss rolls this time, but rolling is still not easy. I have a hard time keeping the whole thing round, and the surface is not as smooth as I'd like to see. I'm happy with my second try though. At least I know what I can do next time to make it even better!
