How to Make a Soap Cupcake With a Bath Puff

I used to make these years ago when I was selling soap.  The kids really loved them, and they are easy to make.  I hadn't made one in a while, and I thought my daughter would love it.  I was right; she loves it!  I love it because you can hang it up in the shower, which reduces clutter and helps the soap last longer because it's not sitting in water.  These only take a few minutes to make, so it's a perfect project for a weekend if you have a spare half an hour.  Then let the soap set up, unmold it, and enjoy.  Since it uses melt and pour soap, you don't have to wait for it to cure.

Soap Cupcake With a Bath Puff

What You Need

1.  To determine how much soap you need, fill the cupcake tins almost full with water.  Measure the water in ounces.  That is how many ounces by weight of soap that you will need.  I used about 4 ounces of soap to make two cupcakes.   Chunk the soap up and melt in the Pyrex measuring cup in the microwave.  Mine took 30 seconds.

2.  Add a drop of colorant and fragrance oil.  Use 1 teaspoon fragrance oil per pound of soap.  Since I used 4 ounces, I used 1/4 teaspoon fragrance oil.

3.  Pour the soap in to the cupcake tin.  You want fill it almost to the top, but you want to leave room for the puff too.

4.  Gently place the bath puff in the soap, making sure that the string is at the top.  Let it sit until cool.  If it won't pop out of the muffin tin, place it in the freezer for 10 minutes and try again.

This is one of my favorite melt and pour soap projects because it is so easy, yet it looks so cute.
