RECIPE: Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcake Soap

Fall is in the air. It brings cooler weather, falling leaves, hot cider, craft shows and the forever popular "Pumpkin Spice Latte!"  My customers love pumpkin and coffee soaps. They make a great gift for the coffee lover. Pumpkin Spice Latte cupcakes are always a hit at all my fall craft shows. I put a cute hang tag on them and wrap them in clear cello. In this recipe we are going to use pumpkin flakes, pumpkin seed butter and coffee...what more do you need?

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. This project and these instructions have been written for someone who has experience making soap and knows the potential dangers due to working with sodium hydroxide. It will not outline safety methods of working with dangerous chemicals, it is simply a soap recipe for advanced soapmakers.
  3. Put on your protective gear. This is very important since you will be working with an extremely caustic base that can and will burn you if you touch it. Noxious fumes are also released from the exothermic reaction that occurs when you mix the sodium hydroxide with water. 
  4. Wear a face mask or leave the vicinity quickly after stirring the sodium hydroxide into the water. If you get any lye on your skin just wash it off quickly with copious amounts of cool water.
  5. Measure water and lye in separate containers. Very carefully, pour lye into water and stir until lye is dissolved. Set aside to cool down.
  6. Measure out coconut oil and palm oil into microwave safe dish and melt in 30 second intervals until melted. DO NOT OVERHEAT! Or you can use a double boiler.
  7. Measure olive oil and pumpkin seed butter into a large bowl. Add melted coconut oil and palm oil to the bowl.
  8. Place your stick blender in the oils and tap it on the bottom of the bowl to "burp" it and release any air bubbles. 
  9. Pour the lye water over the shaft of the stick blender. Mix for 30 seconds and then scrap sides with a spatula. Keep going 30 seconds at a time until a light trace.
  10. Pour 1/3 of batter into a medium bowl and add 1 tablespoon of titanium dioxide and stick blend until all blended together. This will be the topping. Set aside.
  11. Add fragrance oil, 1 oz. pumpkin flakes and ground coffee to the remaining soap batter.
  12. Stick blend until it comes to trace. Then pour into round silicone molds, and tap gently on counter top to get all the bubbles out.
  13. Now back to the “topping”. Stick blend until the soap is very thick. Then put tip in piping bag and fill. 
  14. Top each cupcake with a simple star drop design or like a yummy cupcake from your local bakery. Add remaining 1 oz. pumpkin flakes as a topping on each one.
  15. Let cure for a minimum of 4 weeks. Then package in cello bags with a cute tag.
  16. OTHER SUGGESTIONS: Add a cinnamon stick to the bag with a ribbon and a label. Make sure to put on your labels "DO NOT EAT!" You can make others like hazelnut latte, or white peppermint mocha and have them displayed on cake stands. Or, display in large coffee cup planters.
