Step 1: Melt 4 oz of clear melt and pour soap base. Add a pinch of light gold mica (or whatever colorant you’re using) and mix together. With your injector tool (droppers will work), fill each little flower on the wedding cake mold with your colored soap. Let the flowers cool.
Tip: When using oxides, to avoid spots and speckles, mix your powdered colorant with a little rubbing alcohol before adding it to the soap base.
Step 2: Melt approximately 8-10 oz of white melt and pour soap base. Mix in ¼ oz White Tea and Ginger fragrance oil and 1/2 tablespoon oflight gold mica (adding the mica is optional, it will give the wedding cake a slight shimmer).
Step 3: Let your soap cool to 120 degrees before pouring your second layer. Spritz the flowers with rubbing alcohol before pouring the second layer to make sure the layers will adhere. Pour your second layer and spritz again with rubbing alcohol to eliminate bubbles. Let the soaps cool for 4-6 hours before popping out of the molds.
Note: If the soap does not cool to 120 degrees, it will melt your flowers in the mold. This would be a shame since getting the flowers perfect takes a bit of effort. So make sure to control the temperature of your soap by heating in 30 second intervals in the microwave.
Hint: For the Pink Wedding Cake Soaps, use the liquid non-bleeding red in the clear soap base for the flowers and the non-bleeding red in the white soap base for the cake. You will only need 1 drop. A little goes a long way when using the non-bleeding red!
Interested in making these favors in a larger quantity? No problem! Just keep in mind that 16 oz of soap base makes roughly 8 bars of soap (with thisspecific wedding cake mold). We recommend 1/2 oz of fragrance oil per pound of soap base. And for the colorants? It’s really up to you. Add as much or as little as you want to create your perfect shade.
