How to Make Oatmeal Cream Pie Soap Cupcakes

How to make soap cupcakes.  These adorable oatmeal cream pie soap cupcakes are easy to make with a cupcake mold.  They smell amazing with a natural scent from essential oils.

Melt and pour soap is my favorite kind to make.  It's quick, easy, and fairly inexpensive to make.  I like that you can really get creative with different scents, additives, and molds.

I like making food inspired soap because it looks cute and is fun to use.  My kids really like the food inspired soaps, too.

One that had been on my to do list was to learn how to make soap cupcakes.  Most soap cupcake recipes or tutorials call for whipped soap on the top.  

I do have a how to make whipped soap from melt and pour soap recipe that works great.  However, I am not the best at piping and this soap doesn't fully harden.  It's not great for making soap cupcakes.

So I found an adorable soap cupcake mold, and it's perfect for these oatmeal cream pie soap cupcakes.

These cute soaps are perfect to use as a body soap, hand soap, or give as a gift.  They make great handmade gifts for teachers, coworkers, or anyone you want to thank with a gift but can't spend a lot of money on gifts.  

How to Make Oatmeal Cream Pie Soap Cupcakes

Melt and pour soap is a fairly easy craft to make, and these are very easy.  You just need soap, the mold, a scent, and some oatmeal and cinnamon if you want to add it.

Melt and Pour Soap


I used Crafty Bubbles white melt and pour soap.  You can use any white melt and pour soap base for these soap cupcakes.  You could use a goat's milk or a shea butter soap if you want it more moisturizing.

Oatmeal


I added ground oatmeal because it's an oatmeal cream pie soap.  I grind oatmeal in my Ninja and keep it in a container to use later.   You can also use colloidal oatmeal in soaps.

The oatmeal will sink to the bottom if you pour the soap too soon.  It's important to let it cool to 120 degrees and use a laser thermometer to check the temperature.

If you don't have a laser thermometer, let the soap sit until a skin forms on top.  Stir it to dissolve the skin, then pour quickly.  

Pouring the soap at a cooler temperature will help stop the oatmeal and cinnamon from falling to the bottom.

Cinnamon


Adding cinnamon is optional.  It can irritate those with sensitive skin, so omit it if small children are using this oatmeal cream pie soap cupcake.  

Vanilla Essential Oil


I used the Right Note/Crafty Bubbles Vanilla essential oil.  It has a pure vanilla scent that's lovely in these soap cupcakes.

You can also use a vanilla oleoserin essential oil.  It's a semi-solid concentrate made by removing the solvent from vanilla extract.  

Cupcake Soap Mold


I love this cupcake soap mold! I do a whipped soap from melt and pour soap recipe that I love, but it's not suitable for soap cupcakes.  It is soft, almost like a drier shaving cream.  It will get dented and smooshed if you use it for the icing on these soap cupcakes.

Instead, I bought this cupcake soap mold.  It makes 4 cupcakes at a time.


I'm pretty crafty, but cake decorating is not in my list of skills.  I wouldn't be able to pipe a soap icing and have it look pretty.  With the mold, the icing always looks perfect.  

Mica


I added a little bit of brown mica to get the bottoms darker.  This is optional.  The oatmeal and cinnamon will also make it darker, but I wanted a more uniform color.  

You can also use a liquid soap colorant or a solid soap color block.  I do recommend buying an actual brown color.  It can be hard to find, but I never have much luck mixing colors to make brown.

Ingredients


  • 19 ounces white melt and pour soap divided
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground oatmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essential Oil divided
  • Brown Mica

Tools


Directions


Step #1


Cut 8 ounce of white melt and pour soap into 1 inch cubes.  Melt in the microwave 30 seconds at a time.  Stir at each interval.



Step #2


When it's fully melted, add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essential oil and stir well.  Let cool to 120 degrees and pour into the cupcake top part of the mold.  Spray with rubbing alcohol to remove air bubbles.



Step #3


Cut 10 ounces of white melt and pour soap and melt in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval.

Step #4


Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essential oil, cinnamon, ground oatmeal, and mica.  Stir well.

Step #6


When both the tops and the bottoms are cool and fully hardened, remove them from the mold.  Use a knife to score them so you can "glue" them together with melted soap.



Step #7


Melt one ounce of white melt and pour soap.  Carefully spoon it on top of the scored bottoms of the cupcakes.  Set the tops on and press down firmly.  Let sit until the soap is cooled.
