Melt & Pour Tutorial: How to Frost A Cupcake Soap

How to Frost a Cupcake Soap
GoPlanet now offers two different decorator kits for soap frosting. The Decorator Plus is our most recent addition. It is made of plastic and contains 5 decorating tips. The clear plastic allows you to see just how much soap frosting you have left in the tube.

The Decorator Pro kit is made of stainless steel and is very durable and comes with six different tips. I've been using this particular kit for many years with great success. Below is a short tutorial on how to use the "Star" tip to create a nicely frosted cupcake soap. We suggest using the Mold Market Original Cupcake base. Place a paper cupcake liner in the mold before pouring the soap if you want the look of a "real" cupcake.


Hold Open Star Decorating Tip 1M approximately 1/4" above cupcake top at a 90° angle to cupcake surface. Pipe a spiral of icing, beginning at the outer edge and working inward.


Stop pressure; pull tip away.


Pipe a second spiral, smaller (not as wide) on top. End spiral at center. Stop pressure; pull tip straight up and away.
