 Yay! Christmas is right around the corner! I've made melt and pour soap before http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323071.msg3727661#msg3727661 with easy molds. But this year I wanted to give soaps as a gift (mostly because im so broke >_<)

I bought 1lb of goats milk soap from Micheals Craft store for $9.99



 Then I bought scents from Save on scents http://saveonscents.com/ Which is amazing by the way. I bought:
Trix cereal
Banana nut bread
Cotton Candy
Bubble gum
Victoria Secret Love Spell
Hazlenut Cappuccino
French toast

All of them in 1 oz bottles, and SOS except the Trix I bought as a super concentrated formula. The cost + S&H was $23.61, and they were here in four days. I love SaveOnScents!! By the way, the 1 oz bottles last forever!! I use about a half a cap full of the scent in each batch of soap, so it lasts longer.

I cut three cubes out of the brick of soap (which is already lightly preferated)


Then melted them in a cup. And added some food dye for color. One cup was a tan color, the other was pink.



Then I bought a donut mold from eBay user Flexiblemolds.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230400634586&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT It costs $13.45 (S&H included) and got here in just three days! Awesome service, the mold was perfect and works amazing! I dont need any releasing agent, it just pops right out! Be sure to check out the other fantastic molds they have for sale!! http://stores.ebay.com/FlexibleMolds-for-Wax-Soap-Crafts



Then I poured the pink soap into a bowl, and dipped the doughnut soap right into in.



Finished product





I also put cake sprinkles on top, but because the soap had already cooled down, they did not stick  Sad I figured, I would just place the doughnut in the microwave for 3 seconds so it could slightly melt enough to stick to the sprinkles...bad idea. The entire thing melted in an instant. Leaving me with a puddle of pink/tan soap.  Cry

 I learned my lesson so you wont have to  Grin

All the supplies cost:

Scents-------               23.61
Mould--------               13.45
Soap---------                9.99
___________________________
                                  $47.05

The soap makes about 10, maybe 11 bars. But there is enough scent for tons more batches. I plan on going to Michaels and buying more melt and pour soap. So the initial cost is a bit steap, but upkeep is just 9.99 for 10 more soaps.

Very cute! I would definitely recommend buying your mp base online, it should be about $2.50 a pound if you buy it in bulk, definitely offsets the shipping cost!

Looks great!
How many soap cubes does it take to make the donut body? and frosting?
How long does it take for the soap to dry?

If you want to add sprinkles, try using bath sprinkles which come scented too in different shapes too!  Cheesy

Can't wait to try it out myself!

It took about three cubes to make one doughnut. And 1 cube to make the frosting- which lasts a long time. I made three doughnuts with 1 frosting and still had frosting left over. It took about 15 minutes for the soap to dry enough to pop out of the mould, then I left it to dry over night Smiley

What a great idea using bath sprinkles- GENIUS!!

Wow so creative.

If this is would  be my soap for taking a bath. I might forgotten that I need to take a bath and eat that donuts. Also forgotten that it is not a food fro stomachs sake it a soap for cleanliness.

This looks so awesome!

I -really- want to try making soap now, even if just MP (though secretly I want to play with lye).

Unfortunately trying to get stuff in South African is turning out to be...hard. I've tried looking at those online shops, but the shipping alone is like $40 minimum.

I've always wanted to mess around with soap making the melt and pour way but I thought I'd never be creative enough to make cool and fun shapes. Fortunately, your super cute doughnut has inspired me and I can't wait to get my hands dirty with soap! Thank you Cheesy

And I'm sorry about your microwave disaster, it sounds like something I would've done. Haha. Maybe next time try using a blow dryer and heat up the top a bit?

Anyway, thanks a bunch!

 Hello all! Thank you so much for your support and comments  Grin I am going to ComiCon this year, hopefully I can sell a few of these. Can anyone help me figure out a reasonable price? If you went to a store, how much would you be willing to pay for 1 soap doughnut?
Also, please please give me suggestions for scents!!
I buy from www.saveonscents.com

I was thinking something sweet, or a funny smell. For instance they offer novelty scents like pizza, french fries, baby powder, etc.

Thank you all Cheesy
