|Finished "Peep" Bars|
|As you can see it is pretty stiff.|
|4 "Peeps" on a bar|
|Rows of individually piped bars|
I made the mistake of making this batch too large and my batter was too high in my widest container. This prevented me from being able to whip as much air as I wanted into the batter. The soap will still float it just won't float as high in the water. It took a while but I got the soap stiff enough that it would stay in the piping bag without pouring out.
|It really does float although not as well as I would like.|
I brought everything into the house so that I could work in the warmth. I neatened up the bars that had ended up looking a little too rough for my taste. I also pulled out the sugar. I coated the top and sides of each bar with sugar to get the same appearance as peeps. These should be ready for purchase from my Etsy shop by March 3rd in plenty of time for Easter baskets.
It is so nice to work on something for spring when it is cold and nasty outside. I hope that you are all staying warm and cozy where ever you are.
