Here’s what you need:
One pound whipped soap base
1.2 pounds Opaque (white) melt and pour soap
2 Tablespoons vegetable glycerine
Digital Soap Scale
Mixing bowl (aluminum preferred, you don’t want plastic as the fragrance will penetrate the plastic and the bowl will no longer be food safe)
Hand-held electric mixer
Decorator Pro frosting dispenser
Glass measuring cup (a 4-cup is best)
Add 2 tablespoons of liquid vegetable glycerine to mixing bowl.
Using digital scale, measure 1 pound of whipped soap base and add to mixing bowl.
Using digital scale, measure 1.2 pounds of white soap base. Cut the soap base into cubes and place in glass measuring cup.
Place measuring cup with soap in microwave and heat in short bursts until melted.
Pour melted soap base into the mixing bowl. Add 4 teaspoons of desired fragrance oil to mixture (that’s about 6 pipette transfers) and any color (optional). If adding color, start with just a few drops. You can always add more if needed. You can use any of our liquid gel colors or DWP colors.
Slowly mix the ingredients together with an electric mixer. Increase speed of mixer once all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. Continue mixing until mixture is the consistency of cake frosting.
