Last week, I suggested to Chelsea (one of our staffers) that we should do a cookie monster cupcake soap. I suggested a few ideas and this was her take. They turned out soooo cute!
Here's what you need:
- Mold Market Cookie Mold
- Mold Market Cupcake base
- Body Butter Whip
- White and Clear Melt & Pour Soap Base
- Decorator Pro to pipe the whipped body butter
- Soap Colors (liquid gel colors work very well)
- Circle cutters or a knife to cut out the eye shapes
- Soap Fragrance Oil
- Your Imagination
Make and assemble the cookies. Use melted clear soap base to secure the cookie pieces. Pour the cupcake bases. Once they set up, remove from the mold and prepare the soap frosting. You can color and scent the frosting as desired.
You will need to work quickly when piping the frosting. You don't want it to set up and harden in the piping tool. I suggest working in small batches. It doesn't take long to whip the body butter. Once the frosting is piped onto the cupcake base, insert the cookie and eyes.
Note: Before piping frosting, spread a layer of clear melted soap onto the top of cupcake base. Once it hardens, it will keep the frosting from sliding around.
