Raspberry Truffle Soap Projecthttps://www.brambleberry.com/in-the-studio/projects/cold-process/raspberry-truffle-soap-project/PS000077.html
This Raspberry Truffle Soap looks and smells like a decadent treat. It's scented with Raspberry Truffle Fragrance Oil, which smells just like the real thing. Because of the vanilla content, it does discolor dark brown. To prevent that in the pink swirl, the fragrance oil is only added to soap colored with Brown Oxide Pigment.
This project combines several different techniques, including a hanger swirl, piping soap frosting, and creating melt and pour embeds. It requires a good understanding of trace and it's meant for more advanced soap makers.
The melt and pour embeds need to be prepped first. We recommend using LCP Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. It doesn't sweat as much as regular soap bases so it's perfect for embedding in cold process soap.
- Skill Level: Advanced
- Time to Complete: 2 hours

Raspberry Truffle Soap Project
Made with Raspberry Truffle Fragrance Oil, this soap looks and smells like a decadent treat. Remember to give yourself time to prep the raspberry embeds.
Make the Embeds
Create the Base
COLOR PREP: Disperse 1 teaspoon of the titanium dioxide into 1 tablespoon of sunflower or sweet almond oil (or any other liquid oil). Use a mini mixer to get rid of any clumps. In a separate container, mix 1 teaspoon of Brown Oxide into 1 tablespoon of lightweight liquid oil. Finally, disperse 1/2 teaspoon of Raspberry Mica into 1/2 tablespoon of liquid oil. Use a mini mixer to get rid of any clumps. Fill the Powder Sprayer with Gold Sparkle Mica.
FRAGRANCE PREP: Measure 2 ounces of Raspberry Truffle Fragrance Oil into a small glass container and set aside.
FROSTING BAG & HANGER SWIRL TOOL PREP: Cut off the tip of the disposable frosting bag and insert the frosting tip. Set aside. Bend the Hanger Swirl Tool to fit inside the 10" Silicone Loaf Mold.
SAFETY FIRST: Suit up for safe handling practices. That means goggles, gloves, and long sleeves. Make sure kids, pets, other distractions, and tripping hazards are out of the house or don’t have access to your soaping space. Always soap in a well-ventilated area.
