First CPOP Cut

The excitement from yesterday's experience continues as I sliced the soap a few hours ago.  I am quite happy with the result actually.  The colors black, rose and white are all vivid.  The batter was just too thick that most of the colors did not went through all the layers for a complete spoon swirl.

Some of the bars have cracks.  If I remember correctly, it is due to too much heat during the oven process.  I have to still experiment more on this.  For now, I think the difference is that the colors are more vibrant for the ones that went into the oven than those that did not.

So glad and thankful that these soaps turned out not as bad looking as I was regrettably expecting yesterday. 

Here is a youtube video about CPOP I watched after yesterday's episode in my kitchen.
