This was my first time entering a Great Cakes Soapworks Challenge, hosted by Amy Warden. I must say that I picked a hard one to start out with! It was so much fun to attempt the Tall & Skinny Shimmy. I’d never done any design like it. I thought for days what colors I would use, what scent I could use, what could I do to make it a bit different. After several tries and fails, this is the best I came up with. A few of my other tries did have a bit more shimmy, but they weren’t quite right. In the end, I have chosen to enter this soap because out of all of the soaps I made with this technique, I love the colors in this one the most.
I chose a Black Raspberry Vanilla Fragrance. My color scheme (front bottom to top of the soap) is Sky Blue, Turquoise, Purple, Pink, Magenta and Black. To give the black a bit more pizzazz, I added Fairy Dust mica to the mix. My soap batter got a little too thick on me, but I just went with it. I got in some pretty swirls on the top and added a touch of glitter.
Good luck to all who entered this challenge. I hope to enter more challenges in the future!
