If soap could have a theme song, this Couture Confetti Cold Process Soap would sing, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper. Featuring a hot pink top layer, confetti-filled bottom layer and lots of sparkle, this soap is the epitome of fun and girly. The confetti layer is created by grating cold process soap with a cheese grater and stirring it into the soap batter. I used equal amounts of pink, purple and yellow soap, but you can use whatever colors you’d like. If you like the confetti effect, check out the Cherry Blossom Glitter Cold Process.
To match the feminine colors in this soap, I used Bramble Berry’s Juicy Couture Type Fragrance Oil. Inspired by the popular women’s perfume, these bars have a unique combination of floral and fruity notes. This fragrance oil does mildly accelerate trace, so I used it to my advantage. The acceleration made it easy to create layers and a dramatic textured top. If you’d like to learn more about trace in cold process soap making, click here.
