Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. Cut up 1 lb. of white soap into chunks and place in a large, deep glass bowl.    
  3. Place in microwave and heat soap until melted, about 1-2 minutes until soap has completely melted.  To help with next step, the soap can be heated to around 160°F.
  4. To melted soap, add 3 oz. of shea butter. Stir until butter has completely dissolved into melted soap. If needed, place in microwave and heat a little more until melted.
  5. Add the 1 lb. jar of Foaming Bath Whip to melted soap/butter mixture and gently stir in. Bath whip will not completely melt but will soften and break up into smaller pieces.
  6. On slow speed, start mixing with hand mixer. It is best to use a deep bowl as the soap will splatter very easily.
  7. Once the soap starts to thicken, turn off mixer.
  8. Add 2 oz. of glycerin and 1 oz. of fragrance.
  9. Start mixing again. If mixture starts to thicken and collect on beaters, turn off mixer, remove soap from beaters and add back to bowl.
  10. On medium to high, quickly whip mixture for another 15 seconds.
  11. Using a pastry bag or Decorator Pro with desired decorating tip added to it, fill with soap frosting and decorate the top of each soap cupcake.
  12. Let product sit for about 24 hours to completely harden. Your soap will then be ready to package.
  13. Should your frosting start to harden up a bit before you have finished piping, whip slightly with hand mixer to soften it.
  14. NOTE: To color your frosting, add small amount of liquid dye after adding glycerin and fragrance. Liquid dye can thin out product if too much is used. Powder dyes can also be used.
  15. NOTE: Unused product can be kept in air-tight container. When ready to use, whip with hand mixer to desired consistency. Product can also be heated slightly to soften.

WSP Questions And Answers

"I'm looking for a sugar-free frosting for my cupcake bath bombs that will harden enough to package and ship, but are oil-free to avoid causing slippery tubs and showers for my customers. Will this recipe work without shea butter and glycerin? If the shea butter and glycerin are required, is there an oil-free substitute for both of them? "

"I made 1/2 of the receipt and it harden up to point that I could not use it. Not sure what I did wrong. It started to harden as soon as I started mixing on low and I could not get a useable consistency. Can I save my batch?? "
