How do you make the uneven top on loaf soaps?

If you mean the frosting type look, you would keep mushing the soap around on top until it starts to set up. If you mean the look of being cut with the crinkle or wavy type soap cutter- I believe there are silicone loaf pans that come with a wavy bottom. I have seen them at my local grocery store and that looks to be what makes that pattern :)

Here's a tutorial on making cold process soap frosting:

Since we're in the melt and pour section, I'm assuming you want a frothy melt and pour look.

I would recommend experimenting either with Foaming Bath Butter

or trying 2 parts melt and pour to 1 part liquid soap or liquid glycerin and whipping that with an egg beater until fluffy. It will get fluffy and if you time it right, you can pour it and it'll set up with the fluffy peaks. It requires some work to get the timing right, but you can make lovely floofy peaks that way.

There was another tutorial on A-M's blog done by Soapy Love on how to get the frosting top that I've used with great success a lot. Do a search on the blog for "birthday cake" and you'll see it. Good luck! :)
