Whipped-Cupcake-SoapMaking Whipped Cupcake Soap

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




Mixing Bowls

Mixing Spoons

Rubbing Alcohol

Pam or other cooking spray

Paper Towels





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.






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








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.






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!







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.






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.






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.





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.






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.






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!

QUICK ORDER FUN Soap Colorants 1 oz.
4 oz. Clear PET JAR
White Straight Lid Smooth 58/400
Powdered Sugar
Bowls (5)
Spoons (5)
Hand Held Mixer

The Steps:
Clean & Sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Step 1:  Using your scale, weigh out 454 grams of Whipped Soap Base and place it into your mixing bowl.  Set aside.

Step 2:  In a separate bowl, weigh out 250 grams of powdered sugar.

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 4:  Next, add 35 grams of any body safe fragrance oil.  Using your spatula, fold the fragrance oil into the whipped soap base.  Make sure you clean the sides of the bowl with a spatula.

Step 5:  Start whipping the mixture again. Make sure the mixture is well blended.  When the mixture begins to look like whipped frosting again, stop beating.

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.

A perfect mom and me project, the foaming body frosting recipe is super easy to make and doesn’t take a very long time either.  Just make sure that when you make the recipe, you save a foaming body frosting for yourself.

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  Layla Colegrove & Kathy Colegrove / Flowering Tree Botanicals

Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  My mother (Kathy) and I started our business in 2008 and originally only sold botanical supplies. We experimented with using those botanicals in bath products and the rest is history. This month marks our 5th year in business and going strong!

What products do you make and sell?  We still sell a wide variety of botanicals along with bar soap, whipped soap, our signature Bubble Crumbles™ bubble bath, bath crystals, body mist, sugar scrub, whipped soap, lip “quenchies”, tub truffles, bath bombs and more! We’re always adding new products to our lineup to keep things interesting.

What are your business goals?  Primarily, we’ll be focusing on expanding our presence in retail stores. We’ve got a few other things in the works but we have to keep those secret – for now!

What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  The fragrance oils are fantastic and we especially love the lip balm base!
