Soap flowers and cupcakes

I made some cupcake soaps this week. It’s been a looong time since I’ve made any, and I was fretting about how to decorate them.

My very first soap cupcakes were decorated with non-soap, regular cake decorations. They looked pretty, but not really practical 😀

I moved on to piping decorations with leftover soap from other projects. Much more appropriate for bathing with, but I still wasn’t happy with the result:


So I had a root around Pinterest and found a tutorial for making soap roses here on the French SoapSession blog. I have a bit of French (but to be honest the pictures speak for themselves) so I gave it a go. I didn’t think to take any photos (oops!) as I made them but here’s what I came up with:

What do you think?

  6. is it possible to share how u made the pink and white frosting that looked like yoghurt. it looks so good.

    1. Hi Elaine. It’s just my normal soap recipe, but I colour half of it pink and half white with TD. Once it’s thickened up enough I spoon the white and the pink into the same piping bag. It’s just a standard star shaped piping nozzle. Hope that helps – there’s no real secret to it (though I think the lighting in the photograph adds to the effect too 😀 )
