Prepare Your Strawberry Embeds:
You will need to melt 330 grams of your Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap for the strawberry embeds.  Then, add 16 grams Strawberries and Champagne Type Fragrance Oil, 5 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant, and 2 drops Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant.  Mix to incorporate the fragrance oil and colorants. Pour the mp soap into the strawberries soap mold.  Allow them to setup before removing them from the mold.
 
Prepare Your Champagne Bottles Embeds:
You will need to melt 180 grams of your Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap for the champagne bottle embeds.  Then, add 9 grams Strawberries and Champagne Type Fragrance Oil, then add a pinch of the 24K gold mixed with about 5 grams of Vegetable Glycerin.  Mix to incorporate the fragrance oil and colorants. Pour the mp soap into the champagne bottles embed soap mold.  Allow them to setup before removing them from the mold.
 
Prepare the Cold Process Soap:
Step 1:  First, prepare your lye solution. Weigh out 517 grams of distilled water.
Slowly add 196 grams of lye.  Mix well to dissolve the lye.  Also, remember to always add the lye to the water.  Never add the water to the lye.  Allow your lye temperature to drop to room temperature. 
 
Step 2: Prepare your oils and butters.  Weigh out and melt 272 grams Sunflower Oil, 272 grams Mango Butter, 244 grams Fractionated Coconut Oil, 136 grams Apricot Kernel Oil, 136 grams Shea Butter, 136 grams Macadamia Nut Oil, 136 Sweet Almond Oil, and 27 grams Lanolin Oil USP Liquid.  Allow the temperature to drop to room temperature.
 
Step 3:  While you are waiting, prepare the cp soap colorants.  You will need 5 bowls.  You will later be adding about 225 grams of soap batter to each bowl.  Make sure the bowls are large enough to add this amount.  Below will outline the colorants we used for this recipe.
 
     Bowl 1:  14 grams Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant
                    4 grams Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant
 
     Bowl 2:  10 grams Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant
                    1 gram Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant
 
     Bowl 3:  10 grams Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant
                    5 grams Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant
 
     Bowl 4:  2 grams 24K Gold Mica Pigment
                   (mixed with a little bit of your oils)
 
     Bowl 5:  20 grams Titanium Dioxide Oil Dispersible
                    (mixed with a little bit of your oils)
 
 
Step 4:  Once both the lye solution and oils have come to room temperature, pour the lye solution into the bowl containing the oils.  Stick blend to emulsify them.  Then, add 103 grams of Strawberry and Champagne Type Fragrance Oil.  Again, stick blend to emulsify.

Step 5:  Now, you will need to separate your batter.  You will need the five bowls containing the colorants. Add about 225 grams of cp soap batter to four of the colorant bowls you prepared.  The only exception is the bowl containing the titanium dioxide.  Once you have separated the four colors, prepare your white batter.  The batter remaining in your large bowl will be white.  Add the titanium dioxide to this bowl.  Stick blend to incorporate the titanium dioxide. 

Step 6:  Next, separate out 225 grams of the white soap batter.  This small amount will be used for the swirled portion of your soap.  The larger portion will be used to top your soap.  Set the larger bowl of white soap aside for now.
 
Step 7:  Begin mixing the other colorants.  Start with your lightest color and mix each bowl using your stick blender.
 
Step 8:  For this step, you will need an empty bowl.  Pour the contents of the five small bowls into the larger bowl.  You want to pour one color in the bowl.  Then, pour the next color right on top of it.  Continue until you have all five colors in the bowl.  Then, use your rubber spatula to swirl the soap.  Start in the center of the bowl and move your spatula in a clockwise manner.
 
Step 9:  Now, pour the soap batter into the silicone four loaf mold.  Then, place the remaining white soap batter on top.  You want it to look like marshmallow fluff.  Then, place your strawberries and champagne bottles on top.  Keep in mind you will be slicing your soap loaves so place them strategically.
 
Step 10:  After 24 hours remove the soap from the mold.  Once it has hardened a bit, slice the soap.  Once it has cured, it is ready to use!
