I made my peace with it, and started to cut into it....
That's when I entered...dun dun DUHHHNNNN....
The Twilight Zone.
What the heck happened to the ORANGE???? Inside the loaf of soap, it completely disappeared! Now, I know ya'll saw how dark it was in the bowl! It only colored a tiny layer on the outside of the soap and the inside is completely devoid of color. GAH!
My first thought was that it was a result of air oxidation, but the outside of it was stuffed down in a mold with freezer paper all around it, so that didn't get any air either.
I'm stumped. If anyone has ideas about my soap gremlins, please comment below. All is not lost though - I'll pretty it up with some sweet Valentines hearts or something, and it will be just as pretty. It smells incredible.
Let me know what ya think, and thanks for reading!
