Have you noticed how popular cupcakes are? There are cupcake bakeries, cupcake reality shows and even cupcake competitions!

Well, cold process soapmakers are certainly not immune to the sweet lure of frosting-topped goodness. 

That's right! Cupcakes have invaded the soap world!

The latest trend in novelty soap are soaps that look (and sometimes, smell!) like cupcakes, cakes and pies.  In this class, Ruth will show you the easily available tools and simple techniques you need to produce the cutest, sweetest, most delicious-looking soaps ever! 

Why let bakers have all the fun?

Watch as Ruth shows you how easy it is to pipe cold process soap, just like real frosting.  She will give you tips and ideas for making your own soap cupcake creations.  Then, have a try at making your own soap cupcake creations that you will take home with you to let cure and enjoy. 

By the end of class, you'll leave with a handout including a soap recipe and complete instructions for making cupcake soaps. Plus the two cupcakes soaps that you made in class, each in their own gift boxes.

What You Need to Bring: Please wear or bring a long-sleeved shirt and closed-toe shoes. You'll also need rubber gloves and safety goggles. There will be several pairs of goggles and gloves to share, but if you prefer your own please bring them to class.
