How To Make Cake Soap: V-day Special

Hi all, wondering how to pamper yourself this Valentine’s before Date Night? You’ve come to the right place ;)  Today’s recipe is something you wish you’ll be eating yourself, inspired by…. CAKE! 

We make our own cold process soap this time, using our tried and tested method of course. The instructions in the video are super easy to follow, so don’t get intimidated.  

For the fragrance, we chose Dark Chocolate Fragrance oil, which smells exactly like dark chocolate..yummy!  Next we use Synstar Red and Titanium Dioxide for coloring. Finally, we add in Almond Oil, for a nutty scent but most importantly to nourish your skin with vitamin E and protect it from aging. 

Excited? We are! Let us know when you try it .

  3. To bring lye solution to room temperature, place container in a water bath. 

  4. Separately, pour your Oil Mix into a heat resistant mixing container. Add in room temperature Lye Water. 

  5. Next, use a whisk and mix until it reaches thin trace. Timing of this may vary as the faster you mix, the faster solution will saponify and reaches thin trace.

  11. Next, pour in half of the white soap mixture on top of the red soap mixture in the mold.

  12. Spread the soap using a spatula. 

  13. Next, pour in the rest of the red soap mixture. 

  14. Also using a spatula, spread the soap evenly.

  15. With the rest of the white soap mixture, pour in 2/3rd of them on top to top it all off. 

  16. With the rest of the soap, place in a disposable piping bag with the piping tip of your choice. 

  17. Pipe on the “cream” to your cake. 

  18. Add on heart shaped soap on top for decoration. Leave soap to harden for 24 hours.
