DIY Pumpkin Spice Cupcake Soap

No need for flour and sugar here, this recipe makes a dozen miniature pumpkin pie soaps that look too cute for words. I’m fairly certain that if I tried to make a batch of actual pumpkin spice cupcakes, they would not turn out looking so sweet. But since crafting is more up my alley, these soaps are a perfect DIY for the Fall.

We’ve previously made our own soap here on the blog and the first time it didn’t go so well! However, we did learn three mistakes to avoid when mkaing glycerin soap. Oh well! Live and learn and then try again 🙂

Materials Needed:

These proportionals will make 12 mini “pies” and enough “frosting” for each.

Materials needed to make pumpkin spice soap.

Using alternative soap bases:

Suspension soap is a bit thicker when melted compared to regular melt and pour soaps, allowing additives such as glitter and jojoba beads to be suspended within the soap mixture instead of sinking to the bottom of the soap. You do not have to use this soap if you don’t have it. Just double up on the regular melt and pour soap base.

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Hand Soap:

Add 1/2 pound of the melt and pour soap to a microwavable bowl or measuring cup. Melt in the microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring and repeating until completely melted.

Add argan oil, scented oil and 1-2 drops of color to melted soap. Mix well.

Spray your soap mold with the rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles on the bottom of the soap.

melted soap with argan oil, scented oil and orange soap dyed mixed in.

Pour the soap mixture into your mold. Spray top of mixture with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubble on the top of the soap. Allow the soap to harden at least 3 hours or until completely firm and then gently remove them from the molds.
