|Fresh in the mold|
So, after some thought, I decided to make some cupcakes because all my friends and family seem to like them a lot. I'm on the fence about this because only one person has actually used the soap. I appreciate that they all think they are pretty but if they don't use the soap then it kind of defeats the purpose of making soap.
Anywho, here are the pictures of my cupcakes. I have never piped more than one color so I decided that would be my challenge, to pipe two colors and hope they don't muddle together.
These cupcakes are scented with a dupe of Rock Star. They smell really nice. I love sweet smelling fragrance so it's all good :)
The base of the cupcake is colored with a light yellow and the "frosting" is colored with orange and purple. Wasn't sure how that was gonna turn out but I think they look pretty cool.
I went out and purchased these silicone cupcake cups that have the ridges around the bottom like as if they had a cupcake paper on them. I did not use cupcake paper cups because my first set up cupcakes shrunk up during the drying process and the paper fell off. And, the paper color bled onto my white based cupcake.
I also video taped myself making these cupcakes. This will be my first, hopfully not my last, video. I was really nervous! I had to turn off the camera a couple times because I had to wait for the soap to set up some more before I could pipe it. Now if I can just find the stupid cord that transfers the video to my computer so I can share it with you all.
A couple of the cupcakes look a little funky. I was trying out a new tip too. I can't ever try just one thing at a time.. lol
My soap wasn't as set up as I would of liked so I couldn't get a really tall top. Oh well.
Here they are out of the mold... pretty :)
