Soap Making

I had a book on soap making for Christmas last year and all 2011 I had been meaning to give it a go - I finally got around to making some soap just before this Christmas!
I used melt and pour soap base which was actually trickier than I thought it would be.  Before this block was finished one of the layers went completely wrong - melting the base really slowly seems to be key!  For my first soap I tried a layered block to cut into bars.  The only things added to the base were orange scent and orange colour, the first layer also has some powdered cinnamon in.
