Blackberry Cupcake Soap Recipe Preparations Prior to StartingBlackberry 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 EmbedsBlackberry 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: Melt in MicrowaveBlackberry 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: Add Fragrance Oil and Soap ColorantBlackberry 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 BaseBlackberry 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: Add Fragrance Oil and Soap Colorant 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: Pour in MoldBlackberry 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 9: Adding liquids to Goat Milk Melt and PourBlackberry 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: Add Melted and Whipped Soap BaseBlackberry 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: Scoop and PlaceBlackberry 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 TouchesBlackberry 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!

Peppermint Fluff Fragrance OilPeppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil is a sweet scent by Natures Garden. This aroma is perfect for the holidays or even just day to day products for peppermint lovers and anyone with a sweet tooth. Regardless of your reasons for using this scent, we just hope that you truly love it!  Also, to go right along with the fragrance, I suggest trying this peppermint fluff recipe.  Not only will your holiday guest love it, so will you!

What Does Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This is a fun, fluffy fragrance oil by Natures Garden that embraces lightheartedness and femininity all in one!  A fabulous blend of fresh essential oil of peppermint and huckleberries, hints of violet and white florals, with creamy base notes of vanilla marshmallow. Due to the peppermint essential oil in this blend, your skin will be provided with a slight cool sensation when using in soap or bath products.  Very fun! NG Original Scent! 

Top:  Peppermint, Huckleberries, Apricot, Strawberries
Mid: Peach, Violet, White Lily
Base:  Vanilla, Sandalwood, Marshmallow

How Do Our Customers Use Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil in Room Scenting Recipes?

Our customers can create all sorts of different kinds of room scenting products with this sweet peppermint fragrance oil. First of all, potpourri and incense can include up to 50% of this vanilla scent. Any homemade cleaning supplies can be scented with this aroma at no more than 5% overall. Any aroma beads that are made with this scent will retain a strong scent. Further, various wax product creations can be made with this peppermint fragrance.

Candles and wax tarts can both include up to 10% of this sugary scent. Further, we found Joy Wax and WOW Wax will both perform perfectly for this fragrance oil. Also, soy wax will retain a nice, strong scent for this scent. We suggest that you use either two drops of red liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or a shredded red color block in an ample amount. Even if you choose to not follow our recommendation, just don’t use any crayons in the candle products or you will likely have your wick clogged.

How Do Our Customers Use Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Recipes?

Our Peppermint Fluff Fragrance Oil is a great scent for all kinds of bath and body products. First, products that rinse off the skin like bath gels, bath oils, bath teas, and bath bombs can use up to 5% of this fragrance oil.  Additionally, lotions, perfume oils, body sprays, and many other kinds of related products that remain on the skin can also use up to 5% of this peppermint fragrance oil.

Not only can this scent be used in soap, but its addition into cold process soap works wonderfully. In fact, our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have revealed this scent to have no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. The final product will have a milk chocolate discoloration and the bar will have a very strong scent retained. Due to the 6% vanillin content, it is likely that all or part of the discoloration in these soaps can be prevented by including vanilla white color stabilizer. If you wish to color any of your bath and body products, then we suggest using red soap dye in the amount that satisfies you.  Just remember that you should never use candle dye in any body products as it is not body safe.

It’s Autumn and that is the time for pumpkins to shine- and not just the jack-o-lanterns- pumpkin-flavored and -scented products are popping up everywhere this time of year. They seem to be falling out of the sky like the leaves off of trees. But what scent better embodies Fall than a combination of pumpkin and spices? Indulge yourself in everything Autumn with this decadent scent.

What Does Pumpkin Eggnog Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

A magical combination of creamy vanilla custard, fresh pumpkin and apple, hints of cinnamon and clove, with subtle base notes of cedar and musk.

How Do Our Customers Use Pumpkin Eggnog Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This fall fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. It is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this spicy scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 2 drops orange plus a tiny bit of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or a shred a small amount of orange and brown color block into your melted wax. Never color candles with crayons; it will clog the wick!

Room scents! This delicious scent comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%.

Soaps! The maximum usage percentage for this alluring autumn aroma in bath oils, bath gels, and soaps is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this fragrance performed well in CP soap: no acceleration, no ricing, no separation, and strong scent retention. It did discolor to a brown color. This is likely due to the 4.66% vanillin content of the fragrance. Vanillin has a tendency to discolor bath and body products, the more vanillin, the darker brown the finished product. You’re welcome to try Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to combat discoloration; you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions are to use orange soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Maybe you could even split your batch in half- one half with color stabilizer and orange colorant and leave the other the unaltered beautiful brown. What a beautiful swirled soap that would make! Perfect fall colors. Never color bath and body products with candle dye; you’ll end up coloring yourself!

We’ve also got a wonderful recipe for a Pumpkin Eggnog Foaming Sugar Scrub. You’ll need Pumpkin Eggnog Fragrance Oil, Whipped Soap Base, Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, Orange Soap Colorant, some jars and lids, and, of course, sugar. If you follow our directions carefully, you’ll have a delicious-smelling scrub that looks like a big jar of pumpkin eggnog with whipped topping. As tempted as you may be- do not eat it! Use it to exfoliate your skin: wet your skin and then gently massage the mixture on the area you wish to target. No need for additional soap- this recipe has soap in it! Be sure to rinse your skin thoroughly afterwards and your skin will feel amazing!

Body products! This seasonal scent performed perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in body sprays and lotions is 5%.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this fall fragrance in cleaning products is 5%.

Be sure to check out our array of Unscented Bases for an easy way to create a variety of products with this rich aroma- just be sure to follow the guidelines above!

It’s almost spring time, and we’ve all been in the spring mindset here at Nature’s Garden! So we’re bringing you another wonderful free recipe, perfect for the upcoming spring season! We will be making Whipped Cupcake Soap with our Daisy Type Fragrance! This is a unique soap that looks delicious enough to eat, but smells just like a lovely spring morning! This is the perfect twist for anyone who is more into the floral scents but loves yummy looking soaps!

 

Ingredients for the Base:

1370 grams of Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap

69 grams of Daisy Type Fragrance Oil

Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

 

Ingredients for the Whipped Top:

300 grams of Whipped Soap Base

300 grams of Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap

34 grams of Vegetable Glycerin

31 grams of Daisy Type Fragrance Oil

10 drops of Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant

Other Ingredients Needed:

Square Loaf Mold Market Mold

8 oz. Bullet Bottle

Fine Mist Sprayer

Decorating Sprinkles

Toothpicks

Scale

Mixer

Mixing Bowls

Mixing Spoons

Rubbing Alcohol

Pam or other cooking spray

Paper Towels

 

Directions:

022

 

You can start to make your soap base by measuring and weighing out 1370 grams of Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour Soap into a mixing bowl. Then spray just a little bit of cooking oil onto a paper towel and wipe it around the inside of your mold. This will make it easier for you to remove the soap in the end. Go ahead and begin to melt down your soap in the microwave, stirring occasionally.

 

 

025

 

 

When your soap is completely melted, add 69 grams of Daisy Type Fragrance Oil and mix it in thoroughly.

 

 

 

 

027

 

 

Using a toothpick, carefully add just a little bit of the Brown Oxide colorant to your soap, just enough for it to reach a cream color. Mix thoroughly.

 

 

 

030

 

Once your soap is cream colored and thoroughly mixed, go ahead and carefully pour your soap into your mold. Pour it into the middle of the mold, this will allow the soap to spread more evenly throughout the entire mold. However, make sure your soap is not too hot! If it is too hot, it can warp and ruin your mold!

 

 

 

031

 

 

Once you have finished pouring, make sure to spray your soap with rubbing alcohol! The alcohol will work to get rid of any air bubbles that may form. Leave your soap to sit until it has cooled down and hardened.

 

 

067

 

 

After the soap has hardened, you can weigh out 300 grams of your Whipped Soap Base, and 300 grams of Cocoa Butter Melt and Pour in a separate bowl.

 

 

 

078

 

Then, take the bowl with the whipped soap and add 34 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 31 grams of your fragrance oil, and 10 drops of Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. Using a hand mixer, mix this all thoroughly together until it becomes very fluffy. Putting the fragrance and glycerin in at this point will make it easier once you are ready to add the melt and pour soap.

 

083

 

 

Then go ahead and melt down your melt and pour soap. Once it is fully melted, add it to the bowl with the whipped base. You will need to move very fast at this point as this sets up extremely fast.

 

 

091

 

 

Again, using a hand mixer, mix it all together thoroughly and then work fast to pour it onto the top of your soap. Once you have it all on top of your soap, go ahead and sprinkle as many sprinkles as you want across the top.

 

 

104

 

 

After you have let your soap completely set up and harden, your new Whipped Cupcake Soap is ready to be removed from the mold and cut!  Once cut, it is ready for you to use and enjoy! This deliciously feminine soap is one that all of your friends and family are sure to love! Make sure to check out all the rest of our free recipes and classes!

Whipped Soap Base


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, foaming, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies, whipped soap base' and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

whipped soap baseThe wait is finally over; Natures Garden received a new product last week that we know you are just going to love:  Whipped Soap Base.  This product will have your creative juices flowing with all of the fun possibilities you can produce.  The bright white whipped soap base is quite an amazing product and has a shelf life of 1 year.  The base alone has a rich, foaming lather with bubbles great and small. Who knew washing could be so much fun!

The whipped soap base is a great by itself, but it is even better when it is scented with body safe fragrance oil and colored.  But, the fun doesn’t stop there.  Whipped Soap Base has a variety of uses when other ingredients like sugar or melt and pour soap are added to the mix.

Whipped Soap Base can be used to make an array of finished products.  Treat your product line with new delightful body goodies like foaming body frosting, foaming sugar scrubs, whipped shaving creams, and even soap frostings.  The list could go on and on.

To use Natures Garden’s whipped soap base, simply weigh out the amount you need.  Whip it with a hand held mixer.  Add fragrance oil and soap colorants if desired.  Then, easily spoon it right into the jars you are packaging it in.  It really is just that simple.

There are two points that should be mentioned.  When mixing the whipped soap base, you will want to make sure you have a nice deep mixing bowl.  Also, if you selected to scent your whipped soap base with a fragrance oil that has a high vanillin content, you will want to also use Vanilla White Color Stabilizer to help reduce discoloration in your end product.

The finished bath and body products feel incredible!  The luxurious lather leaves your skin feeling moisturized and silky smooth.  And, one of the greatest attributes of this product is that once packaged, it does not extensively deflate over time. 

To view any of the recipes using this product, simply click on the links, or view Natures Garden’s website.  In the free recipes and classes area, you will find a variety of recipes and steps to create fabulously fun projects.
