Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Preparations Prior to Starting
Prior to preparing for your Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe, really focus on making sure your work space is prepared and ready to begin. Make sure all your equipment is clean and sanitized. Get all of the ingredients and supplies out and in your work station prior to starting as well. We also recommend putting on protective clothing, such as a soap making apron and gloves along with a hair net when making your homemade soap recipe. Finally, fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol and place a sprayer on top. Rubbing alcohol not only helps with adhesion between the layers of soap but also to release any air bubbles in the soap before it sets up.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 1: Creating the Embeds
First, you are going to create the cute little blackberry embeds that go on top of the Blackberry Cupcake Soap’s frosting. First, you will need a microwave safe small bowl. Now, you will use your scale to weigh out 75 grams of SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap. Cut your clear melt and pour soap into small sections before you begin to melt the base.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 2: Melting Your Clear Soap
Once you have weighed out your SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap, you are going to melt it in your microwave. You are going to want to melt the clear mp soap base in 30-second intervals until it is completely fluid. Also, you will want to make sure you stir the SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap while you are melting it. You need to continue to heat the base until it is in a liquid state, be careful not to overheat the soap base.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 3: Coloring and Scenting the Blackberry Embeds
Next, remove the SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap from the microwave and add your soap colorants and fragrance oil. You will need to add 2 grams of Natures Garden Blackberry Jam Fragrance Oil along with 1 drop of black oxide FUN Soap Colorant. Also, add 4 drops of the Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant. Lastly, you are going to want to incorporate the ingredients fully into your melted SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap. Mix slowly until everything you added is blended thoroughly and evenly.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 4: Pouring the Blackberry Embeds
Finally, pour the SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap into 10 cavities of the raspberries and blackberries mold. We recommend getting this mold from www.flexiblemolds.com. Once you pour the soap, be sure to spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles in your melted soap base that may have been created while mixing and pouring your melt and pour soap into the mold. Allow the soap to completely setup before removing the blackberries from the mold.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 5: Preparing the Cupcake Bases
Now, you are going to start preparing your cupcake bases. Again, you are going to need the SLS Free Clear Soap Base. At this time you will also need the cupcake mold market mold. Next, in a small microwave-safe bowl, weigh out and melt 200 grams of your SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base. Remember to heat up your SLS Fee Melt and Pour Soap in the microwave in 30 second intervals so you do not overheat the clear soap. In addition, you will want to stir your soap base in between each 30 second burst to help it melt evenly.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 6: Adding Fragrance Oil and Soap Colorant
Once you melted your 200 grams of SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap base, you are going to add 6 grams of your Blackberry Jam Fragrance Oil and make sure it is mixed completely into your melted soap base. Next, add 15 drops of Natures Garden Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant to your melted soap base and 2 drops of your Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant to your melted soap base. Lastly, mix both FUN Soap Colorants completely to incorporate the colors into your melted detergent-free soap base.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 7: Pouring Your Cupcake Bases
Now, you are ready to pour your SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap into your the cupcake base cavities of the cupcake mold. You will notice that this mold has four cavities, two cupcake bases and two cupcake tops. You will only need to pour the cupcake bases of the mold, not the cupcake top cavities. So, slowly pour the purple soap to fill the two cavities. Next, you are going to want to spray the purple soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles that may have formed. Air bubbles can get trapped in the soap as it is setting up, so make sure you spray the homemade soap as soon as you pour it. Finally, you will want to let the soap setup completely before moving on to the next step.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 8: Preparing the Whipped Soap Base for the Cupcakes
Next, you are going to prepare the whipped topping portion for your Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe. First, you are going to want to prepare the whipped soap base. For this you will need a medium size mixing bowl ready. Then, weigh out 215 grams of whipped soap base. Now, to the bowl containing the whipped soap base, add 21 grams of vegetable glycerin. Also, you are going to want to add 14 grams of Blackberry Jam Fragrance. Finally, use your hand mixer to whip the soap to a fluffy frosting like consistency. Then, set the bowl aside, you will come back to it shortly.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 9: Preparing the Goat Milk Melt and Pour
Now, in a separate bowl, we will be weighing out your Goat’s Milk MP Soap. This soap is going to be mixed with the whipped soap base. By adding mp soap to the whipped soap base it hardens the whipped soap a bit. While it will still look like frosting it won’t be super soft. This means it can be easily packaged while still maintaining its cupcake appearance. So, in a deep bowl, weigh out 215 grams of goat milk melt and pour soap. Once again, you are going to want to melt the goat milk melt and pour soap in the microwave in 30 second intervals. Once the soap base is completely melted, we can move on and put everything together. You will need to move quickly through the next few steps as the base can setup rather fast.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 10: Putting Everything Together
Next, we will complete the whipped soap frosting. This means it is time to put everything together. You will need to move quickly as the soap frosting does tend to setup quickly. You are going to add your melted goat milk melt and pour soap to your whipped soap base. Again, while using your hand mixer, combine the melt and pour and whipped soap base ingredients until you have a fluffy whipped frosting consistency. Be careful not to over mix. Over mixing can cause your frosting to setup before you are able to frost the soap cupcakes.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 11: Topping Your Cupcakes
Now, quickly scoop some of the soap frosting onto each cupcake base you created earlier. Next, you will need the blackberry embeds you prepared earlier. You are finally ready to use those cute blackberry embeds you made! Place the blackberries on the top of each homemade soap cupcake. Push it slightly into the soap frosting so it stays in place. You should have about 10 blackberries to top both cupcakes. This blackberry soap recipe makes two cupcakes. So, this allows you to add up to 5 blackberries per soap cupcake.
Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Step 12: Finishing Touches
Finally, you are going to prepare the light purple drizzle that you are going to put on top of your homemade blackberry cupcake soap! First, you will want to lay down a piece of wax paper. The wax paper will help keep your area clean and protected while drizzling. Then, remove your cupcakes from the molds and place them on the wax paper. Next, go ahead and melt about 50 grams of goat’s milk melt and pour soap in the microwave. Once that is melted, you can add 1 gram of Natures Garden Blackberry Jam Fragrance Oil. Also, you are going to add 10 drops of FUN soap colorant- Ultramarine Violet. Be sure to mix the two well so you have a consistent color. Once you have created the purple drizzle, use a spoon to drizzle the melted light purple soap over the top of each cupcake. Once you have allowed the drizzle to setup, your soap cupcakes are ready to use!
