Today I am going to be making a spring theme soapy project. I’m actually going to make soapy cupcakes using these Russian piping tips! I have had these in my drawers for a few months now and I have actually been a little scared to use them because these are used to make flowers when you pipe real frosting with them and sometimes soap just isn’t cooperating that much and sometimes the openings on these piping tips is very narrow and I am scared that it will jam and won’t work, but I’m going to give it a shout and I’m gonna take you along this journey with me! Hopefully I will succeed and this will make a great video! Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel also if you would like to follow me on social media you will find all the links below: I have a Facebook page, a Twitter account, I have an Instagram feed, I’m on flickr I will leave all the links below and you can follow me on social media!! I got my oils slowly melting in the background and I’m going to go ahead and put my goggles on because I’m going to measure my lie and soap making require safety! Baking cups are ready and aligned. For the base of my cupcakes i am using a fragrance oil called “blooms and berries”. It smells really flowery but it’s not too heavy because there are fruit notes underneath and also I choose this fragrance oil for the base of my cupcakes because i do want the cupcake to smell like flowers because i’m going to pipe flowers on top, but since this is a discoloring and a slightly accelerating fragrance oil i’m going to keep it for the base. Now even with a slight discoloration to tan as mentioned on the label, I don’t really mind because edible muffin are usually a tan color. It will be okay and then I will choose a different fragrance oil for my frosting that will be non discoloring and non accelerating. I have quite a few piping bags for this project! First I have the one for my leaves and then I have one with a just a round opening because I’m gonna pipe under the flowers and then I have my two Russian piping tips placed inside a juice pitcher in a bag so everything holds up on its own and it’s very easy for me to just put the frosting in there whenever I need to. I have all my colorants prepared this is white made with titanium dioxide I have a blend of two different colorings in here mica and a neon powder and same goes for here: this is a combination of neon powder and pink vibrance mica. The base of my cupcakes is firm enough so that I that I can now pipe some frosting on top. I will try to film whatever I can of the making of the frosting but I think this is where things could go a little crazy! Okay so bear with me here, let’s go! A little whoopsy here! These Russian piping tips are definitely a challenge with cold processed soaps. If I ever attempt to use these again and I’m sure I will I think I will stick to one color per project. As you can see I was a little excited at piping the pink flowers first and I kind of forgot that I had a second color I wanted to make flowers with, so that kind of threw me a little bit off-course. I’m gonna try to fix it… Here I am gonna be piping some little green leafs to try and make these flower cupcakes look a little better! I am going to apply the light yellow soap frosting around the piping bag leaving a void inside to add the darker yellow. Hopefully this will show when I pipe the flowers on the cupcakes. I will put little flowers around and cover ok everything i do is not a work of art let’s face it! For some odd reason some flowers are working and some aren’t! I definitely did make a mess here I hope you still enjoyed watching this video even though it was not perfect. Russian piping tips aren’t easy to use . I will try them again but I will change a couple things and i’ll show you next time if it’s better. I actually thought of not making this video but I thought you deserve to see it until the end so there it is there it is and I have odd shapes in all this but some of them will go to my kids and others i will put on sale! Here are two of the prettiest of the batch from the soapy cupcakes made with the Russian piping tips I made yesterday I will proceed to unmolding them and I think some of them I’ll be actually able to sell because they turned out not so bad but some of them are really weird looking! let’s take a closer look!
