A Dash of Cola and a Dash of Cherry Lemonade

Who doesn't like frosting on the top of their cake?  It just makes it all the better.  A couple of weeks ago I decided to get a little more creative with some of the foody fragrances that I use for the bar soaps that I make.   I knew adding a frosting would be tricky but I didn't realize how tricky it would be.  The timing has to be just right or the frosting won't be whippy or won't adhere to the rest of the soap.  Needless to say, I didn't get it quite right the first time.  I had to go back a partially remelt the loaves and the whipped topping and try again.  The second time around turned out to be splendiferous!!! 

Cola Glycerin Soap with Whipped Frosting
Cherry Lemonade Glycerin Soap with Whipped Frosting

I let the loaves sit overnight and pulled them out the next day to cut them.  The first cuts were glorious!!!  There before me I had a gorgeous, fragrant bar of soap with a light and fluffy topping.  The topping was a little squishy just the way it should be.  I was so happy I squeeled and jumped up and down.
What a pleasant way to end the summer!!  :)
