Cupcake Soaps


This blog post isn’t so much about the soap....check this out:



Isn’t it just adorable?! It's a printable retro oven, but it gets better….look what this one does:


Isn’t that the cutest cupcake packaging you have ever seen?!

I first spied these fun printable cupcake boxes on Pinterest, and of course my mind immediately went to soap and how cute these be with cupcake soaps in them for teacher gifts! With the end of the school year approaching, I made just a small 1-pound batch of cupcake soaps using Amanda’s Palm FreeCupcake Recipe for my daughter to give to her teachers as thank-you gifts:


The butterflies are royal icing decorations :)

Cupcakes in the box:


That little oven mitt is a gift tag...how cute is that?!

The illustrator who designed these boxes suggested that you could also cut out the oven window and put a piece of cellophane behind the window, so that you could see through into the oven (and goodies) inside, I think that would be really cute too!

I purchased and downloaded this set from the artist on Etsy; the printables come with 5 different colors of ovens, cupcake tray, editable cupcake flags, and little matching oven mitt gift tags…swoon!

  1. Oh my gosh that is soooo adorable!!! Both the oven and your soaps. Your daughter's teachers must be so disappointed every time she moves on because they don't get the nice gifs from you anymore.

    So this is a case where part of the soap is actually edible. :) Love it!

    2. And I'm sure if this teacher had her druthers, she'd keep your daughter in her class for the next 10 years so she can continue to get your fabulous soap.

  3. Cee, did you make those butterflies? This is so super cute!
    I love how the box slides out of the oven!
    Isn't it crazy how we are always thinking what we could do next with soap?
    Or I can make that work with my soap. So much fun!
    TY~ for sharing.

    1. Hi Jen, thanks! No, I didn`t make the butterflies, they are royal icing decorations, but one could definitely make some easily enough with CP or MP :)
