Christmas is a time for treats and sweets and holiday cheer. Here's a Christmas treat that you don't want to eat, though it may look good enough to.

These Christmas Cupcakes use regular cold process (or even melt and pour) soap for the "cake" base, and then use whipped soap for the frosting. To make them, you'll need:

  • A basic cold process soap recipe for the "cake" bases. You'll need about 3 ounces of soap for each cupcake.
  • A batch of whipped soap - for this soap frosting I made the whipped soap with:
    • 10.5 oz. (298g) palm oil
    • 10.5 oz. (298g) coconut oil
    • 3.3 oz. (94g) sodium hydroxide
    • 8 oz. (227g) water
    Notice, I used only hard oils for this batch - I wanted the frosting to be extra stiff. I also did not add any fragrance to the frosting, but you could - as long as you know that the fragrance is not going to add any color (whether by the color of the fragrance or by it having some vanilla in it!)
  • Spatula and/or cake/cookie frosting tools
  • Muffin tin (stainless steel or teflon coated - not aluminum) and muffin papers
  • jojoba beads for sprinkles, if desired
