My blog post yesterday I talked about how easy it was to pipe soap, well perhaps I spoke too soon. I made some coconut lime soap cupcakes the day after I made the chocolate raspberry cupcakes. The fragrance must have sped up the soap reaction because the soap got thick very fast. I was able to plop in the uncolored cake part of the soap and push it down to fill the cups. Then I had to add some green oxide to get the color for the frosting. I barely whipped that color in, but by then it was so thick that I could hardly pipe it. I had to change the soap frosting into another bag and use a larger circular tip, but even then it took all my strength to get the soap out. In the end, I think they look good, but boy was it a process! I pressed in some soap shavings to give the look of coconut and then topped that off with my favorite--glitter! I think they look a bit like Christmas trees, so maybe I should make them again for next Christmas and decorate them with little colored balls of soap to look like ornaments!
