Step 1: Each block of Natures Garden Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap is perforated into 40
cubes. Cut along the perforation until you have a total of 10 cubes. Place your 10 cubes into the microwave safe container. This is approximately 10 ounces of soap.
Step 2: Prepare the chocolate: Mix 2 1/2 Tablespoons of powdered cocoa with 1 1/2
Tablespoon of liquid canola oil and mix. This will be used to color the cupcake base brown, and the frosting a light brown color. Set aside.
Step 3: Melt the Soap. In a glass container, melt soap in the microwave 30 seconds at a time. Stir gently. Keep melting until all soap is in a liquid state.
Step 4: Moving quickly, add the chocolate mixture you made earlier; reserve about 1/8 tsp. of the chocolate mixture to color the frosting you will make later. Then, add 1/2 teaspoon of Natures Garden Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Finally, add 1 Tablespoon Natures Garden Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcake fragrance oil. Stir Gently.
Step 5: Pour your molds. Slowly pour the mixture into the cupcake base portions of the mold. Stop pouring when the cavities are full.
Step 6: Air Bubbles. If this occurs, take the alcohol and spray lightly, misting the top of the soap.
Step 7: Cooling the soap. Either leave the cupcake mold where it is to cool, or you may place your molds in the refrigerator/ freezer.
Step 8: Removing the soap. Place the mold upside down. Using your thumbs, apply
gentle pressure to the center of the cavity. When the soap releases, set it aside.
Step 9: Preparing the Decorative Toppings: Shred one cube of yogurt melt and pour
soap base with a cheese grater. This will look like shredded coconut. Set this aside.
Step 10: Preparing the frosting. Cut 5 cubes of yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base.
Transfer them to the microwave safe container.
Step 11: Melt the Soap. In 20 second increments, start melting the soap. When all 5
cubes are liquefied, add the remaining chocolate mixture you set aside. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Add 4 Tablespoons of vegetable glycerin, 2 Tablespoons of Natures Garden Imagine Base, and 1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Add 1 teaspoon Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcake fragrance oil.
Step 12: Using a mixer, blend until the consistency is a very thick frosting.
Step 13: Frost. Work fast. Frost cupcakes by hand, or place the frosting in a cake
decorating bag. Apply generously to cupcake base. Finally, add the shredded coconut
decorations you made.
