So, after some hair-pulling and a little whining and crying on a soap forum....I figured out what I did wrong! I had left out over 500 grams of olive oil! How? A little while ago my lovely husband made me a bigger mold and I in my infinite wisdom decided not to print out a new recipe but to just write the increased amounts beside my smaller recipe. My recipes are printed with pounds, oz, and grams, but I only wrote down the oz. But half-way through my recipe, while measuring the olive oil, I decided to switch from oz. to grams, because it is such a large amount. I didn't even clue in that I was using less oil, grrrrrrr!
So, now I was a little bit frustrated but also happy because at least now I knew what had happened and I could rebatch with no problem.
There you have it, my little 'Soap Drama'. Would you like to see the end result?.......not too bad after all.
