Heart Cupcakes

Five oil and two butter recipe.  My first batch of soap after almost two weeks.  Got a crazy October this year.
Made the little hearts using melt and pour soap base. 
Ingredients for the cold process soap include Coconut oil, Palm oil, Olive oil, Rice Bran oil, Castor oil, Cocoa butter and Mango butter.
The black was colored using activated charcoal and the white with titanium dioxide.
The black was fragranced with Chocolate Lover's blended with Butt Naked and the white part was with China Rain fragrance oil.
Frosting texture was a little on the soft side.  Most held up the spiked tip though.
Topped the frosting with the hearts.
The hearts stayed where I placed them and did not melt into the soap batter.  I was worried about the hearts melting during the saponification process since they were so small.  But they held up.
The leftover batters were poured into the regular soap loaf mold.
The frosting and the hearts behaved just as good as in the mini cupcakes.
The black was not as black as I wanted.  I hope it darkens as it cures since the fragrance oils used contain vanillin.

Happy Soaping!
