Garden Path


This was supposed to look like a meandering garden path surrounded by pretty flowers, not like a garden shed collapsed and flattened any flowers along the way. The base is actually green in reality - not sure why it looks yellow in the pic. I'm not gelling this one in the hope that the embeds don't move (although maybe I should gel it and it'd cover up the topping). I used lots of avocado oil in this one so hopefully the soap itself will be lovely and conditioning. We'll see what happens when I attempt to cut it later in the week.

Good name! That's exactly where you've had us all...up the garden path. Croaper my eye.
This is gorgeous Jo, can I book a slice?

Of course you can Corrie - not sure how long it'll take to cure, but given the speed I post things.......
I checked on it earlier, and it has gone more yellow than green which is odd given the amount of avocado oil in it. And it was definitely green when it went into the mould.

I like the yellow. When you slice 'em up, will you post more pics? The green sounds wonderful!

Still too soft to cut and definitely yellow, which is odd as the last one I made with avocado was greener than I wanted. I'll take more pics when it's cut.

It looks absolutely charming! (I would never actually say that, only write it!) How are you going to cut it?

Thanks Nicki, and I'm going to cut it with difficulty I think! I tried a couple of days ago and it was too soft still. I might have another go tomorrow.
