Doughnut Melt & Pour

We’ve made sweet soapy cupcakes and piled-high macarons, and now these adorable doughnuts are joining the foodie soap family. Use the Doughnut Mold to make 6 doughnut halves, and then ‘glue’ the halves together with a little extra melt and pour. The tutorial below is for a Strawberry/Vanilla combo, but we also made mint chocolate ones too. There are lots of color and flavor combinations; be creative!

What You’ll Need:

11.5 oz. Goat Milk Melt and Pour
3 mL Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil
3 mL Strawberry Fragrance Oil
3 mL Vanilla Color Stabilizer
Yellow Oxide Color Block
Fired up Fuschia Color Block
1 tsp. Medium White Jojoba Beads
1 tsp. Red Jojoba Beads
Doughnut Mold

ONE: Combine one teaspoon of each jojoba bead color in a container and mix well. Set aside.

TWO: Cut 9.5 oz. Goat Milk Melt and Pour into small cubes. In a heat safe container, melt the soap on 10 second bursts, stirring between each burst.

THREE: Shave or cut a very small amount of the Yellow Oxide Color Block and add to the melt and pour. We cut a small corner chunk of the color block, but you can add small amounts until desired color is reached (a little goes a long way). Stir well to combine.

FOUR: Add 3 mL of Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil and 3 mL of Vanilla Color Stabilizer. The Vanilla Color Stabilizer will prevent the Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil from discoloring the soap. Stir well to incorporate.

FIVE: Pour melt and pour into the mold, and spray with 99% isopropyl alcohol to disperse bubbles. Keep about .5 ounce for step 7.

SIX: Allow the doughnuts to dry for 30 – 60 minutes until firm. Remove from the mold.

SEVEN: Remember that .5 oz. of base you saved from step five? Re-melt it and place a small amount on the flat side of a doughnut. Place another half-doughnut on top, and press down gently. Repeat this process until you have “glued” six doughnut halves together to make three complete doughnuts.

EIGHT: Cut 2 oz. Goat Milk Melt and Pour into small cubes. In a heat safe container, melt the soap on 5 second bursts, stirring between each burst. Add small amounts of the Fired Up Fuschia Color Block until you obtain a soft pink color. This is a very strong color so use it sparingly!

NINE: Add 3 mL Strawberry Fragrance Oil and stir to combine. Let the soap cool to 120 degrees or below.

TEN: Lay down a sheet of parchment paper or place your doughnut on a surface that you don’t mind getting some melt and pour on. Using a spoon, drizzle about a third of the pink soap onto the doughnut until completely covered. The melt and pour will dribble down the side and into the center of the doughnut to form the frosting.

ELEVEN: While the pink soap is still liquid, sprinkle a pinch of Jojoba Beads on the top. When dry, you may need to wedge a spatula underneath the doughnut because the frosting may have adhered it to your table surface or parchment paper.

TWELVE: Repeat this process with the two remaining dougnuts. Let cool for another 30 – 60 minutes and enjoy!

    I have been making the donut soaps for a few months now and they are always a hit. I would just make one suggestion, instead of dumping the “frosting” on top, put it in a shallow bowl and dip the donut instead, it allows it to have a full even coating and drips just enough down the sides for a more “cartoon like” effect. Of course it’s up to the creator to decide how their pastry is frosted, but this way is really fast and less messy!

      Hi Dar!

      I believe that should be fine! You’ll want to pour that Melt and Pour when it’s cooler, around 120 degrees, so it doesn’t morph your bath fizzy. :)

    Thank you for this great project. These were a hit among some friends and we just received a request to make another home and school donation basket.

    We seem to have developed a fruit fly problem since we last ordered supplies and soaped. Is this a common occurrence with sweet smelling FO.?

    Thanks for any tips.

      Hi Marissa!

      So glad you like the project!

      We are also having quite a few fruit flies here in Washington state. They do seem to like the sweeter scents in the warehouse. To keep them away, I would recommend wrapping those soaps nice and tightly and maybe storing them in a closed area, like a cabinet. :)
