Doughnuts - a Melt and Pour Tutorial

I recently saw this post from Anne Marie Faiola from Soap Queen and decided I loved the doughnuts so much I had to try and make them for myself. I wrote to Kelsey at Brambleberry and asked them if I could use their post as a reference and they said yes! I happened to have the mould already so I was set to go.

What you need:

Clear Melt and Pour soap base

Yellow Oxide

Pink Dayglo

Fragrance Oil - I used Mango

Microwave jugs

Stirrers or spoons

IPA

Jojoba Beads

Titanium Di Oxide

Doughnut Mould

MP Donut (1)    MP Doughnut-001 

How to:
Melt your clear soap base in the microwave. While it is melting prepare you Titanium Di Oxide and Yellow Oxide by mixing in a little IPA.
Once Melted add the Titanium Di Oxide and Yellow Oxide to reach your desired colour. Also add your fragrance oil. Then pour into the mould

Let the doughnut halves get hard then remove from the mould

Melt the remainder of your "yellow" soap base and pour into the doughnut mould again. This time don't fill the mould to the top. Leave a few mm's spare. When this layer has hardened so it is spongy to the touch then pour more yellow melted soap onto the top and place the first lot of halves on the ones in the mould. You are basically gluing the two halves together.
When these are hard you can remove them and you will have a whole doughnut.

Melt your clear soap base in the microwave. While this is melting prepare your Pink Dayglo colourant and Titanium Di Oxide by mixing in a little IPA.
When the soap has melted add the pink and white until you have reached the desired colour.

Let this cool down and get thick. Take a spoon and pour it over the doughnuts.
Immediately take the Jojoba beads and sprinkle them onto the wet icing/ soap.
Let your soaps cool down and then package them how you wish.
We put ours in cute clear boxes.
