Cake soaps are some of the best examples of creative Melt and Pour soap making. The finished results can be quite stunning and can easily be tailored to different occasions, seasons, or simply made to mimic the real thing in virtually any style. For the purpose of this recipe we have created a classic 'Christmas cake' soap, but there will be many other variations you can think of. It really is not that difficult to master these techniques. The main point to always remember is that to avoid colours bleeding into each other, care should be taken to use the correct combination of dyes and pigments.
