Project Description

These melt and pour soap donuts are easy to customize with your favorite colors and scents.

Soap donuts are easy to make and they look good enough to eat. This variation is made with Black Raspberry Vanilla Fragrance Oil. Melted soap is drizzled on top to look like frosting, and White Bursting Beads are added to look like sprinkles. 

This project is easy to customize with different colors, scents, and toppings. The donuts look great with dried flowers, glitters, and exfoliants on top. It's a great project for kids as well.

The 4 Cavity Donut Silicone Mold creates 4 soaps that are glued together with melted soap to create 2 bars total.

Donut Soap Project

  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Time: 2 hours
  • Yield: 3 soaps

Soap donuts are easy to make and they look good enough to eat. This variation is made with Black Raspberry Vanilla Fragrance Oil. Melted soap is drizzled on top to look like frosting, and White Bursting Beads are added to look like sprinkles. 

This project is easy to customize with different colors, scents, and toppings. The donuts look great with dried flowers, glitters, and exfoliants on top. It's a great project for kids as well.

The 4 Cavity Donut Silicone Mold creates 4 soaps that are glued together with melted soap to create 2 bars total.

You will need:

  • Base:
  • Donut Silicone Mold
  • 11 oz. Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
  • 1 oz. White Melt and Pour Soap Base
  • 6 mL Black Raspberry Vanilla Fragrance Oil
  • 6 mL Vanilla Color Stabilizer
  • Brown Oxide Color Block
  • 99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a Spray Bottle
  • Soap Frosting:
  • 3 oz. White Melt and Pour Soap Base
  • Electric Bubble Gum Color Block
  • Perfect Red Color Block
  • White Bursting Beads
  • 99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a Spray Bottle

Follow these steps:

1

Chop 11 ounces of Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base and 1 ounce of White Melt and Pour Soap Base into small uniform pieces. Place the soap in a heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 15-20 second bursts.

2

Add a small chunk of Brown Oxide Color Block to the melted soap and stir. Tip: If the soap hardens during this process, put it back in the microwave and heat using 5 second bursts. 

3

Add 6 mL of Black Raspberry Vanilla Fragrance Oil and 6 mL of Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Use a spoon to thoroughly mix.

4

Pour the soap into the Donut Silicone Mold. Spritz with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow to cool and harden for several hours. There will be some leftover soap - this is to remelt later and glue the donut halves together. 

5

Once the soap is completely cool and hard, remove it from the mold. Tip: If the soap is sticking in the mold, place it in the freezer for about 5 minutes and try again. The cold temperature causes the soap to constrict, which makes it easier to unmold. 

6

Remelt the remaining brown soap using 5 second bursts. Spray one donut half with 99% isopropyl alcohol and carefully pour the melted brown soap on top. Quickly press another donut half on top and squeeze the 2 sides together. Repeat with the remaining halves. Allow them to cool and harden - this will only take a few minutes. 

7

Chop 3 ounces of White Melt and Pour Soap Base into small uniform pieces. Place the soap into a heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 5-10 second bursts.

8

Add shavings of the Electric Bubble Gum Color Block until you have a bright pink shade. Add a few shavings of the Perfect Red Color Block to give it some depth. Once you're happy with the color, it's time to decorate.

9

Take the temperature of the pink soap - it should be about 110-120° F. Lightly spritz a donut with 99% isopropyl alcohol and use a spoon to drizzle pink soap on top. Quickly sprinkle the White Bursting Beads on and spray with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Tip: You can also carefully pour the pink soap - it's a personal preference. 

10

Repeat this process with the remaining 2 donuts. 

11

Allow the soaps to fully cool and harden. To prevent glycerin dew, cover them in plastic wrap. Enjoy!
