Have you ever heard of Whipped Soap? If you like to try to create these beautiful soaps that actually floats then check out this Whipped Soap tutorial from Magdoline (the original post was from Bittercreek).
According to the author of Bittercreek says that she had alot of fun making these soaps. One important factor in making these types of soaps is that you will need a heavy duty stand mixer such as a Kitchen Aid brand or a similiar brand. The author used an inherited 1960's Sunbeam because she did not want to get her good mixer messy. I would bet that now her Sunbeam mixer is now dedicated to making soap only. So it may be a good idea to try to find a mixer that you can use soley for your soap making needs. It should have a whipping attachment. Anyone have any suggestions on where to find a good inexpensive mixer to use for this process?
