Step 3:  Next, using your hand held mixer, start to whip the whipped soap base.  You will notice the base will start to appear like whipped frosting.  When you have reached this point, add the powdered sugar to the whipped soap base.  Using a spatula,  begin to fold the powdered sugar into the whipped soap base.  You want to thoroughly mix this to incorporate it well.

Step 6:  Now, get your 5 bowls and spoons.  To each bowl, add approximately 140 grams of the body frosting mixture.

Step 7:  Depending on the depth of color you are looking to achieve, add anywhere from 5-15 drops of Fun Soap Colorant to each bowl.  Stir well with a spoon to fully incorporate.

Step 8:  Finally, using your spoon scoop the foaming body frosting into your 4 oz clear PET jars and lid.
