Step 1: Each block of Natures Garden Goat's Milk 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: 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 3: Moving quickly, add several drops of Natures Garden Neon Orange soap colorant first. Then, add 1/2 teaspoon of Natures Garden Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Finally, add 1 Tablespoon Natures Garden Orange Cream Cupcake fragrance oil. Stir Gently.
Step 4: Pour your molds. Slowly pour the mixture into the cupcake base portions of the mold. Stop pouring when the cavities are full.
Step 5: Air Bubbles. If this occurs, take the alcohol and spray lightly, misting the top of the soap.
Step 6: Use the leftover soap. Remelt the leftover orange soap in the microwave (15 seconds). Add a few extra drop of Neon orange soap colorant. Stir. Pour a thin layer of soap directly onto sheet of wax paper. Allow to set up. Using a knife, cut the thin soap layer into small strips. Roll these strips of soap into curly decorations. You will be using these curly decorations later.
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 frosting. Cut 5 cubes of Goat's Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base. Transfer them to the microwave safe container.
Step 10: 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 11: Using a mixer, blend until the consistency is a very thick frosting.
Step 12: Frost. Work fast. Frost cupcakes by hand, or place the frosting in a cake decorating bag. Apply generously to cupcake base. Finally, add the curly orange decorations.
