In my yoga class today, the instructor had cupcakes on the brain. She made 300 cupcakes this morning and talked about them … a lot. I’m saving myself for wedding cake tomorrow (one of my friends is getting married), so I am satisfying my current sweet tooth craving with soap.
From LilyBay Soap, this cupcake looks good enough to eat. $3.95
Sweet and Tranquil has done an admirable job of making me drool on my keyboard. $4.50
Cupcake N Kisses has a great idea for keeping little boys interested in bathing. $5
You Go Girl Soaps designed a Creme Brule cupcake to rival most real desserts. $5.50
Soap Kitchen lives up to their name with this luscious cupcake soap, made with real peanut butter. $6.00
On the first one, the cake even looks spongy under the icing. Wow…they are awesome.
Love these so real looking cupcakes! Thanks for sharing (I think) my daughter now wants them for her bathroom! : )
Yes, I think those candy sprinkles are real candy sprinkles on the first cupcake. And, I also think that the first cupcake is a piped Hot Process soap so yes, you could definitely try this with HP or CP.
Ensuring that you have a really good product with comprehensive safety testing is always important but it is impossible to test for *everything* that people can be allergic to (peanut allergies included). That’s why it’s imperative that you check out product liability insurance to protect yourself should the worst happen.
To answer your specific question, if you are using any nut based oils in your products, yes, a general nut allergy notation would be appropriate. Most people with nut allergies are experts at reading labels and will catch the Sweet Almond Oil in your labeling but it’s always better to be safe than make someone else sorry.
Those all look so great! I have yet to try making my own soap cupcakes. You think you could make them with cold process? You think those are real candy sprinkles in the fist soap?

Absolutely yummy looking…I had to reread your comments to make sure they were actually soap and not real cupcakes. How creative!
LOVE the cupcake soaps! Looking forward to my own cupcake encounter this afternoon at a baby shower.
The peanut butter cupcake got me thinking about allergies and the soapmaker’s liability. I have read the article on TeachSoap about insurance but was wondering if you include a ‘use at your own risk’ statement on your packaging are you covered if someone has a reaction to your products?
I can’t even tell those are soap! That last one looks especially yummy… I love how creative people are with soap = )

I got my own yummy cupcake soaps today from Heather at Twin Birch – satisfies my craving for now! 🙂
Soap tastes yucky! But these cupcakes are so yummy looking especially the first one 🙂

They look so real! I wonder if anyone tried to take a bite?
OMG, I can’t believe you put up all of these tantalizing finds right before my rent check is due! Shame on you!
..well, OK, maybe just one or two wouldn’t hurt…
