How to Make Petit Four Soap Video

Melt & Pour Petit Four Soap

This is the second video I made with Jeanee Duval of Dirty Laundry (if you missed the first one see it  here). In this video, I show her how to make some cute little Melt & Pour soaps that I designed just for her. As you can see from the outtakes at the end we had a great time making this video! Jeanee is a blast to work with and so talented! Check out her stylish blog and cute Etsy shop to see for yourself. She is also the author of a wonderful e-book on how to sell your handmade goods called How to be a Craft Show Genius. And best of all, she designed a custom box template for this video that fits the cube soaps perfectly; you can find it here.

    I must try these! I am very new to the soap making world & have a couple questions! First, how many individual petit four cubes will one project kit make? (I could do the math myself, but don’t want to mess up!) Second, could someone tell me the difference in color blocks & the powder colorants that you mix with glycerin? I was wondering specifically why and when you would choose one over the other.

    • Hi Kara!

      This recipe makes a little over 16 ounces of soap, which would be about 3-4 individual petit four soaps. But, you can always add an extra bar of White M&P soap base onto your cart to make double the amount.

      We choose to use the color blocks in this recipe because they mix in easier with the melt and pour base then some of the powder colorants do. It basically helps to shave off that extra step of pre-mixing your colorants with glycerin.

      I hope this helps to answer your questions. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. =)

    Oh my, those are so gorgeous! I just loved the cupcake video, and this is one is doubly great. You both are so wonderful! I can’t wait for more :D Bigggggggg hugs! <3

    I have a question, on some of the bath cupcakes Jeannee had sold in her shop I saw cupcakes looked like they had a top (ex:
    http://www.etsy.com/transaction/37213498
    http://www.etsy.com/transaction/39753277

    How does she do that? It looks awesome!
    You aren't kidding about talent, every time I look at these cupcakes..I want to eat one! I haven't made them yet but can't wait to try. The cupcake stands she sold were so perfect too, I can just imagine one in my bathroom with my mini collection of cupcake just waiting to treat me in the tub hehe! Her shop is so wonderful.

    This looks wonderful. Can I replace the colour blocks with liquid colorant or micas as I cannot get colour blocks from the UK.

  7. Cath says:

    Thanks Becky,

    Just another question…. I know a lot of soapers in US uses rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) In the UK it is very difficult to get hold of. I have searched high and low and practically every chemist near where I live but had no luck, even the chemist doesn’t know where I can get them from. Is there a substitute to this item?

    I have also asked UK soapers and a lot of them suggests surgical spirit, but when I asked the chemist, they told me that it is not the same as rubbing alcohol as it contains more other ingredients.

    Does witch hazel work? I am relating to getting rid of the bubbles and making layers stick together.

    Many thanks.
    Cath.

    These are so cute and I’d love to make some however I do not have the melt and pour products I only CP or CPHP can these be turned in to a CP project. If yes what colorant would you recommend?
    Thanks for the video I’m hooked on you!

  9. Cath says:

    Thanks for your advice Becky.
    I wanted to buy some color blocks from your website but postage alone is over $40 so I think I’ll stick to normal non bleed colorant or micas.

    Many thanks
    Cath.

    thanks

    Jade

    • Good morning, Jade!

      I’d definitely see if you can talk to other soapers in your area and see where they purchase their VCS (Vanilla Color Stabilizer) from, or you can also try out YouWish, a Dutch distributor of many of Bramble Berry’s products. You can find her website here:

      http://www.youwish.nl/

      I hope this helps!

      P.S. I’d also check out the Teach Soap Forums to see if there are any UK soapcrafters there that can give you some advice.

    how do you get the sprinkles to stay on the cream topping without bleeding into it? i tried sprinkles on cup cakes, and now i dare not use them again

  12. Beth says:

    Would your 12 bar square silicone mold work for this project or is the 9 cube mold a better option? Thanks for your help! :)

    • Amanda says:

      Hi Beth!

      You could certainly make this recipe with the 12 Bar Square Silicone Mold, just keep in mind that the shape of each bar will be slightly different because the 12 Bar Mold is not as deep. You also may need to adjust the amount of soap to fit into that mold. If you give this recipe a try, I’d love to see pictures on our Facebook page! :)
