Making soap doesn't have to be boring. Get creative with the moulds you're using and turn out soaps in funky and fun shapes. The classic loaf soap mould isn't the only option you have for creating fabulous homemade soap. Give a "soap cake" as a beautiful gift or make round soaps and put them in your bathroom for an elegant look.
To make perfectly round gift soaps, pour your soap mixture into a Pringles chips can. Once the soap is ready to cut, create thick, round soaps from the circular loaf. Just leave an inch or more of space when you pour your soap in, so you will have room to pull the chips container away from the soap when it's hardened.
Use silicon cake moulds to create amazing soap cakes. Create a bundt soap cake and slice it up to make gifts for friends. Drizzle soap "icing" over the top of the cake so it looks realistic. Swirl two different colours of soap to make a marble cake effect. A brownie pan can be used to create soap "brownies" from dark brown coloured soap and chocolate scent. In fact, any type of cake mould can be used and sliced up to make interesting shaped soaps.
Clean out real seashells to make seashell-shaped soap. Pour the liquid soap mix into large, clean shells. Before the soap is completely hardened, lift it from the shells and allow it to firm up on a rack.
Use mini loaf pans instead of full size pans to make cute, small loaves of soap. Wrap them with cellophane paper, tie them with bows and give them as Christmas presents. Slice your "loaf" before you package it to make small slices that are easier to use.
