i love this.  It has 3 layers. A cinnamon graham "crust," then an apple cinnamon "filling," and then a layer of fluffed cinnamon vanilla "streusel." A drizzle of vanilla "icing" finishes it up.


TUTORIAL FOR APPLE TART SOAP.

You need:
white MP base. (I used almost a 2 lb block for this)
Cinnamon
Apple FO
Vanilla (non-discoloring)FO
yellow coloring.
Rubbing Alcohol
Bowls, sifter, metal, whisk, butter knife, baking pan (I used 8x8)

First-cut MP into small, same size chunks, separate them into four pilesfor the four layers. You can make each layer as thick as you want, just make sure you don't use very much for the Icing.

Grease baking pan.  Crisco Works well.

CRUST
1.  Melt MP in the microwave, stop before all of it is melted.
2.Swirl the bowl lightly to melt the rest of it.
3. Add sifted cinnamon until you get a "crust" color.
4. Add vanilla FO.
5. Pour into baking pan.  Spritz with Rubbing Alcohol to prevent bubbles.  Let sit while you do the next step.

APPLE FILLING
1. Repeat CRUST steps 1 and 2.
2. Add a little cinnamon.
3. Add Apple FO
4. Add a LITTLE BIT of yellow coloring.
5. By this time you should be able to layer this mixture on top of the crust.  Spritz the crust with rubbing alcohol again, and pour the apple filling on top.  Spritz with Rubbing alcohol. Let firm.

STRUESAL TOPPING
1. Repeat CRUST steps 1 and 2.
2. Add TONS of cinnamon, and Vanilla FO.
3.  Let sit in the bowl.  When it starts to thicken, whisk the heck out of it.
4.  MOVE FAST-get the pan. Spritz the previous layers with Rubbing alcohol.  Glop the struesal on. Spritz. I sprinkled cinnamon on the top, which is just for looks, it will wash off immediately.  Let harden completely.

ICING.
1. Repeat CRUST steps 1+2
2. Add vanilla FO.
3. Spritz layers.
4 Drizzle icing over the whole pan.
5.  Let harden.

This is my first tutorial.
It's probably confusing.
Ask questions, I really want you to get it.

I love baking, and this recipe stemmed from that.  It was really just a spur of the moment thing, and I did what I wanted.

Enjoy!

thanks guys for the feedback.

everyone wants to eat them. i leave all of my yummy soaps in the fridge now with a sign that says "soap. do not eat,." after a minor incident with my little sister.  now she double checks anything that looks like a baked good with me.
oh, and i am planning on making  strawberry cheesecake bars. that and a vanilla pecan cake are my next projects!

You mean Mp soap?
Yeah I kinda just do what i want with that stuff. I don't look up recipes or ideas or anything.

I now moved on to CP.  I learned the basics off of carious site, but do things my own way, with great results.  I have tons and tons of wonderful soaps, that sell like hotcakes around my home town!

Me neither! A small batch per person would make nice christmas presents!

Hey letusplay, did you take the batch out of the pan then cut, or vice versa? And you cut it with a butter knife?

i'm new to soap making so i have some (probably) stupid questions:

FO is fragrance oil-synthetic scents.

MP is melt and pour-the kind of soap you buy at craft stores, ,elt down, and pour into molds.

I wish I had used a little more apple FO in the middle layer, but overall I'm so happy with them! They smell so yummy! Thanks a ton, letusplay, you rock and I can't wait for your next projects!  Cheesy
