Step 1:  Prepare the buttermilk ice cubes.  You will need 2 ounces of the powdered buttermilk.  Then, add 16 ounces of warm water.  Stir until the powder is dissolved.  Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray.  Freeze the milk. 
Step 2:  Weigh out and melt your oils.  Allow them to come to room temperature.

Step 3:  Prepare your titanium dioxide.  In a small bowl, weigh out 3 grams of titanium dioxide, add a small amount of your oils.  Mix.
Step 4:   Next, we will prepare the lye solution.  You will need the ice cubes that you prepared.  Instead of using water, we will use the buttermilk ice.  So, in a mixing bowl, add 409 grams of the buttermilk ice.  Then, slowly add the lye.  Mix until the lye is dissolved and ice has melted.
Step 5:  Combine the lye solution with your soaping oils.  Use a stick blender to emulsify.  Then, add the essential oils.  Stick blend to a light trace.
Step 6:  Now, separate your soap batter.  In a small bowl, add 2 ounces of the batter.  To this batter, add the titanium dioxide.  Stick blend to incorporate the colorant.  Set this aside, for now.
Step 7:  To the remaining batter, add 3 drops of the red soap colorant.  Once again, stick blend to incorporate the colorant.  

Step 8:  Pour the pink soap batter into your mold.  Place your mold in front of you vertically.  To the right half, place rose petals.
Step 9:  For this step, you will need the remaining white soap batter.  It needs to be at a thick consistency.  Place the white soap batter in your decorating bag with a round tip.
Step 10:  Pipe circles to look like pearls down the left half of the loaf.
Step 11:  After 48 hours, remove the soap from the mold.  When ready, cut the soap.  Allow them to further cure before using.
