You can make soap "frosting" using glycerin-based soap. With a few instructions, special considerations, and suggestions for projects, you'll be on your way to making soap frosting.
What You Need
To make soap frosting, you need whipped soap base, a melt-and-pour soap block, and vegetable glycerin. In addition, you can add your favorite color or fragrance. Use a hand mixer to fluff your ingredients into a frosting-like foam. You can use any ordinary frosting pipe and tips to create your designs.
When mixing your soap, it may be helpful to warm your mixing bowl first. This will help ensure that the soap stays workable and does not harden before you can use it. Fill your bowl with hot water, and let it stand for a few minutes. Then pour out the water and dry the bowl thoroughly before use. Also make sure that the melted soap is liquid before adding it to the mix, since chunks will make the frosting harder to pipe.
What You Can Make
Smooth your frosting on the top of soap cupcakes. Pipe frosting on loaf soaps to create decorative tops. Use cookie tips and pipe out small hand soaps for use in guest bathrooms.
