Step 1: Each block of Natures Garden Soya Milk Melt and Pour Soap is perforated into 40 cubes. Cut along the perforation until you have a total of 10 cubes. To make each layer of this cupcake, you will need 3 cubes for the chocolate layer, 3 for the buttercream layer, and 4 for the strawberry layer.
Step 2: Prepare the chocolate: Mix 2 teaspoons of powdered cocoa with 1 teaspoon of liquid canola oil and mix. This will be used to color the chocolate layer brown.
Step 3: Melt the Soap. In a glass container, melt 3 cubes soap in the microwave 20 seconds at a time. Stir gently. Keep melting until all soap is in a liquid state.
Step 4: Moving quickly, add cocoa mixture you prepared. To the melted soap. Then, add 1/8 teaspoon of Natures Garden Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Finally, add 1 teaspoon of chocolate fudge 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 1/3 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. Allow the chocolate layer to completely set up.
Step 8: The Buttercream (White) Layer: You will melt 3 cubes of soap for this layer. No color is added to this. Add 1/8 teaspoon of Natures Garden Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, 1 teaspoon of buttercream cupcake fragrance oil. Stir Gently. Pour this layer on top of the chocolate layer and allow to completely set up.
Step 9: The Strawberry (Pink) Layer: You will melt 4 cubes of soap for this layer. Add Neon pink soap colorant to make the soap pink, 1/8 teaspoon of Natures Garden Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, 1 teaspoon of strawberry preserves fragrance oil. Stir Gently. Pour this layer on top of the buttercream layer and allow to completely set up.
Step 10: 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 11: Making the Decorative Soap Cherry: Melt 2 cubes of soap base. Add red soap dye. When soap begins setting up, roll the soap in your hands until you form a total of 2 soap cherries for decorating your cupcakes. Set aside.
Step 12: Preparing the frosting. Cut 5 cubes of Soya Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base. Transfer them to the microwave safe container.
Step 13: Melt the Soap. In 20 second increments, start melting the soap. When all 5 cubes are liquefied, 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 Buttercream fragrance.
Step 14: Using a mixer, blend until the consistency is a very thick frosting.
Step 15: Frost. Work fast. Frost cupcakes by hand, or place the frosting in a cake decorating bag. Apply generously to cupcake base. Finally, add the soap cherry you made.
