Christmas spice M&P soap

This is a melt and pour soap I've prepared more than a year ago just before Xmas time. Before this, I have been using a wooden loaf mould and I have been slicing the the soap to make nice 1-cm-deep chunks.
Anyway, I wanted to try different shapes, and bought a silicon cookie mould for my Xmas spice cakes. You can also recycle old cookie moulds you have in your kitchen, but don't use them for cooking ever again!
As always, I used  the SLS and SLES-Free Stephensons 'Crystal' soap base I bought from The Soap Kitchen. This is a vegetable based M&P base that is glycerin rich and that is made from 100% natural ingredients. To make the soap cake more sparkling I've added plenty of Cristallina glitters and grated on top some pink soap I've prepared in advance.

Recipe (slow moving trace):
Olive oil (pomace) 70% Coconut oil 22.25% Palm oil (organic) 7.75%
Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'
