To introduce you to some of our favorites (but it’s hard to pick your favorite when they’re all your babies!), I have put together this easy and super adorable project. The scalloped rectangle mold is used to look like yummy old fashioned cookies and can be made in two “flavors”: vanilla/strawberry, and chocolate/vanilla!

1 lb. Naturally Clear Soap Base, cut into small cubes
1 lb. Bright White Soap Base, cut into small cubes
Scalloped Rectangle Mold
Rubbing alcohol in spray bottle
Cutting board and knife
For the strawberry/vanilla combo, for each soap you are making, melt 3 ounces of clear soap base (20 seconds on high in microwave). Stir in a few drops of Buttercream Yellow colorant. Then add a few drops of Vanilla Frosting fragrance oil and a few drops of Vanilla Stabilizer.
Pour in a layer of this soap, just to 1/4″ thickness. Allow to harden at room temperature.
Now melt 3 more ounces of clear soap base and color with a few drops of Pink Frosting colorant. If you would like a softer shade, you can stir in a drop or two of the White Icing colorant. Now add a few drops each of Strawberry Jam and Vanilla Stabilizer.
Check soap temperature to make sure it is no hotter than 120 degrees. Now spray your Vanilla layer in the mold with alcohol and pour in the Strawberry soap until 1/4″ from the top of the mold. Allow to harden completely.
Briefly reheat the Vanilla soap for 10 seconds or so in the microwave. Check the temperature again, spray the Strawberry layer, and top off the mold with soap. Allow to harden.
Gently pull sides of mold away from the hardened soap, invert and unmold. Voila!
For the Chocolate version, use clear soap base with Bakery Beige for the “cookies”, then white soap base or clear base colored with White Icing colorant for the center. I recommend the Chocolate Fudge and Vanilla Frosting fragrance oils.
