Trying to make soap cupcakes


Recommended Posts

I am trying to formulate my recipe for some soap cupcakes and I'm not sure how to do it. When you order a mold from a soap company usually it tells you how much oil it holds. I got some silicone molds from Michael's and I just want to make 6 cupcakes. Is it all just guess work? I've tried finding good articles or videos on formulation for different size molds. Does anyone have any advice?

Well, for a traditional mold, to figure out approximately how many oz of oils a soap recipe would require it is LxWxH x .4.


a rectangular mold of mine 2.5 x 11 x 3.25 holds about 90 cubic inches of finished soap. X .4 = about 36 oz of oils.


so measure your molds with water. Weigh the water. Multiply the oz by .4 to get a close approximation.


if you do a water discount the .4 will be slightly different. But this gets you close.
