Recipe Directions

  2. Lay out 12 silicone cupcake liners on a cookie sheet or if available, place in a regular metal cupcake tin to give the silicone molds more stability when pouring.
  3. Weigh 3 lbs. of Extra Clear MP Soap Base. Cut up into medium sized chunks and place into a large glass bowl.
  4. Place bowl in microwave and heat until soap has melted. Start at 1 minute. Remove and then stir. Continue heating at 30 second intervals until all the soap has melted. Stir to make sure all chunks have melted.
  5. Add 10-20 drops of Sunflower Yellow Stained Glass Liquid Dye to melted soap. Stir until the color is completely blended in.
  6. In plastic beaker, add 1.5 oz. of fragrance oil. Pour into melted soap and stir slowly.
  7. Pour soap into all the 12 cupcake liners. Let soap cool until it is solid.
  8. When soap has completely hardened, carefully remove from cupcake molds. Place soap cupcakes on a cookie sheet and set aside.
  9. Re-melt the remaining soap and pour into citrus wax tart molds, fill only half-way.
  10. Place citrus wax mold into freezer for 5 minutes or until soap has solidified.
  11. Unmold. Using a straight soap cutter, slice off the citrus detail.
  12. Repeat steps 9-11 until you have 16 citrus slices.
  13. Re-melt any remaining soap and fill 4 cupcake molds to complete 16 cupcakes
  14. Let soap set up. When soap has completely hardened, carefully remove from cupcake molds.
  16. Weigh and cut up 8 oz. of Extra Clear Soap Base. Place in glass bowl.
  17. Place in microwave and heat until soap has melted. Remove and stir to be sure that there are no chunks that have not melted.
  18. Weigh the 1.5 oz. of palm kernel flakes and 1 oz. glycerin and place in a bowl.  Heat in microwave until completely melted.
  19. Add 1/2 lb. of Foaming Bath Whip to melted soap. Gently stir, the consistency will soften up slightly.
  20. Using a hand mixer start to whip. Add palm kernel/glycerin mixture while whipping. 
  21. Add 10-20 drops of Forest Green Stained Glass Liquid Dye along with 0.5 oz of fragrance oil.
  22. Continue to mix until frosting thickens. If frosting seems too thin, place in refrigerator for 15 minutes then whip again.
  23. Immediately put frosting into a pastry bag with a decorating tip. A Decorator Pro works well.
  24. Pipe the frosting onto cupcakes. Top with a piece of citrus soap. Continue until all cupcakes are frosted.
  25. Frosting will take about 24 hours to harden up before it is safe to package.
  26. Package in cello bags and tie with ribbon. Label accordingly.
