Melt & Pour Soap Making: Cupcake Brain Soaps

While my honey-man was at the Detroit Tigers game seated behind home plate, I was busy making cupcake brain soaps. First and foremost.... GO TIGERS!!! awesome game. Looking forward to the world's series.

These cupcakes were made with Mold Market's cupcake mold (only the bottom portion). The brain topping was made with our Decorator Pro piping tool and soap frosting recipe.

Pipe the brain with one of the tips included in the Decorator Pro kit. The soap frosting recipe can be found here. Take a peek at my post about using liquid latex for added effects. The "gory stuff in the brain is made from liquid latex.

This is such an easy project. Pour the cupcake base, then pipe out the soap frosting onto the top of the cupcake base. A thin layer of clear soap is used to seat the piped brain onto the top of the cupcake. Brush red lipstick colors into the brain crevices and then insert the liquid latex part.

The liquid latex can be removed before using the soap in the bath or shower. Kids will love applying the latex wounds to their body while in the tub.

WARNING: These should not be used with people who have a latex allergy and the soap labels should clearly indicate this warning.
