The following recipe can be found in my eBook The Joy of Melt and Pour Soap Crafting. I’ve posted this recipe because it’s fun, easy and makes a nice springtime soap!

Went to the supermarket and discovered this 4-pack of colorful plastic gelatin molds. For $2 it was a great deal and they make some beautiful looking soaps.

Jelly Baby Melt and Pour Soap Recipe


16 ounces clear soap base

Magenta mica

1 teaspoon strawberry fragrance


4 four-ounce gelatin molds


Slice up soap base into small cubes and melt. Just before it’s fully melted add colorant. Stir well. Add fragrance. Pour into molds. Spritz away any bubbles with rubbing alcohol. Allow soap to harden in fridge, freezer, or remain at room temperature. Remove from molds. Make sure soap is at room temperature before wrapping. Wrap in cling wrap and label.
