I’ve been working on a new technique lately – Soap Frosting. It’s both extremely easy and harder than it looks.
I’ve done my share of cake decorating since my teens. (I am very proud of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cake top that I piped for my cousin Dale’s 4th birthday. It had Michelangelo’s head and bandana. Kind of <a href=\”http://ideas.coolest-birthday-cakes.com/2015/03/12/coolest-ninja-turtle-face-cake/\”>like this</a>.) I’ve frosted cupcakes with a piping bag. I found a blog post for <a href=\”http://www.sprinklebakes.com/2014/04/easy-piping-techniques-for-cupcakes.html\”>Easy Piping Techniques for Cupcakes</a> to try my hand at a few new or less practiced (by me) styles of frosting. I even practiced some with frosting (Holiday Colors from Aldi’s) first, to my husband’s delight.
However, this is a bit different. Working out the recipe that I want, the right consistency, speed and feel is a little different. I’ve seen so many beautiful bath cupcakes – cold process soaps, glycerin soaps, bath fizzies. I’m also working out how I want these to look, and if I want a different type of “icing” on my fizzies (I think so). I think this is going to be a new project added into my repertoire and offerings for sale in my gift boxes and baskets.
Now, I just have to remember that however heavenly and tempting they smell, they aren’t edible. That’s good for my diet at least.
