I’ve always wanted to make soap cupcakes but stopped at the frosting. Due to my own laziness, I didn’t want to use many special ingredients, and I find pastry bags totally intimidating! So I decided to do a little experimenting and have come up with an extremely simple and fun recipe that requires 2 ingredients and no fancy frosting tips. I hope you’ll give it a try!
1 lb Naturally Clear melt and pour soap
Sweet Treats colorant set
Delectable Desserts fragrance oil set
Whisk or hand mixer
Directions: 1. Cut up soap base and reserve 4 oz for frosting. Melt the rest of the soap and color any way you like. I used Buttercream Yellow for the vanilla cupcakes, and Bakery Beige for the chocolate ones. Experiment with a few drops of White Icing color to lighten the shade if you like. Choose any of the yummy scents for your soaps.
2. Fill each mold and allow to harden. Unmold. 3. To make the frosting, melt the 4 oz of clear soap base in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in 2 tablespoons of liquid soap, a few drops of pink colorant, and any fragrance oil you like . Using a whisk or hand mixer, beat mixture until it forms soft peaks. Add 1 teaspoon of the Rainbow Sprinkles from the Sweet Treats kit. Mix until incorporated.
4. Spoon frosting onto soaps (turn soaps upside down so you’re frosting the backs), piling up as much as possible. Allow to air dry. It’s totally touchable and won’t crack! The frosting has a range of textures that you can achieve, from very soft peaks to dry, stiff peaks. It’s kind of like shaving cream. If you have added frosting to your soaps and you don’t like it, you can scrape it off, put it back in your bowl, and warm it up in the microwave again for 15 seconds. Mix again until you get a good texture. Try again and again – the frosting keeps re-fluffing! Sprinkle on extra sprinkles for added cuteness! Have fun! -Debbie, Soapylove
