Whipped Soap

Whipped anything makes me drool. In fact, I am a total confection nut! I love cupcakes with whipped frosting, I love homemade whipped cream, meringue, fudge..... oh, I could go on and on. So knowing this, it makes sense that I've been on a whipped soap kick lately. Cold process whipped soap. Something that's been around, but I've never seen or heard of before. Now look at these great bars of fluffy soap!

I found Nizzymoulds by accident. Nizzy, the Australian soap maker started the website and has shared her whole process of making whipped cold process soap. It's really a tutorial with photos. The pictures make it look so luscious and makes you practically want to lick the bowl. I have no idea how the final cured soap would feel like or act like, so I can't say too much about it....yet. Since I found Nizzy, the whipped soap seems to be everywhere!

The soap floats, of course, and looks so light and airy. I think my favorite looking one is the "Pink Aquolina Type Luxury Whipped Soap" on sale for $3.00 at Soaps and Such . It looks like really delicious thick graham cracker crust with pink whipped cream on top (below).

Soaps and Such just opened their site and haven't yet set up their ecommerce end of things, but I emailed and I will hopefully hear from them soon and get a review up as quickly as possible. This last photo I just couldn't leave out because, again, it just deserves to be published here with the other things I love the look of. It was made by David Fisher from the article in about.com here.

So if you make whipped cold process soap, send me some of your pictures and I can post them....we can have a whole series on the whipped soap and the soapers who make them. Or you can comment here and tell me all about it. Also, if you want me to have a small slice, I'd love to get one to try.

Now, I need to eat something sweet and cakey.

Hi There, whipped soap is so much fun!!! Firstly though - Nizzy is a guy :-) He was a pastry chef by trade so that explains the genesis of the whipped soap to a degree - when his passion for the two (chefing and soaping) came together.

I was lucky to be personally taught by Nizzy and I think the whole process is incredibly fascinating. There is so many variables ... you can make it as straight bar soap ... or you can add a layer of whipped to CP or HP soap or you can just use it to make piped decorations to add to other creations, or you can make fancy shapes and things like pies, snowmen and so on.

The only limit is your imagination.

It does work differently to CP soap and you do go through it a bit quicker when using it ... but when you've got your head around it I think it's a great idea and has such great scope.

I am FASCINATED with Nizzy. I found him through a link earlier today and I can't wait to try his technique! The background as a chef makes perfect sense because his soap looks good enough to eat!
