PIE CRUST

Step 1
Using a .15cc scoop, add 1.5 scoops of the Toffeelicous Mica into a microwave safe glass container.

Step 2
Add 4.5 oz of Crystal Clear Melt and Pour soap base into a microwave safe container and melt the soap base in a microwave for 30 seconds. Repeat if necessary but don’t boil or burn the soap.

Step 3
Stir slowly until mica and soap is well mixed.

Step 4
Add 1.5 ml of Lemon Curd Fragrance Oil and stir until everything is blended well.

Step 5
Pour a small amount into each cavity of the soap mold, creating a layer for the “crust”. This amount will be enough for 8 cavities. Set aside and let set for approximately 5 – 8 minutes.

PIE FILLING

Step 6
Using a .15cc scoop, add 4-5 scoops of Buttercup Mica into a microwave safe glass container.

Step 7
Add 24 oz of UltraClear Melt and Pour soap base into the container and melt the soap base in a microwave for 30 seconds. Repeat if necessary but don’t boil or burn the soap. This amount is enough to fill all 3 cavities of the mold.

Step 8
Stir slowly until the mica and soap is well mixed.

Step 9
Add 7 ml of Lemon Curd Fragrance Oil and stir until everything is blended well.

Step 10
Make sure the first layer is hardened sufficiently to take the 2nd pour. Spritz the first layer with alcohol. This will help the layers adhere to each other. Pour the “lemon filling” into each cavity leaving approximately 1/2″ – 3/4″ at the top. Set aside for approximately 20 to 30 minutes to allow soap to set enough to support the 3rd layer.

Optional: Use a thermometer to ensure soap is not too hot to prevent bottom layer from melting into the new poured soap. Best pouring temperature is 135 to 140 degrees.

MERINGUE FROSTING

Wait until the 2nd layer is sufficiently set before making the Meringue Soap as it will set quickly.

Step 11
Using a scale, weigh 1 pound of Foaming Bath Butter and add it to a mixing bowl.

Step 12
Add 2 tablespoons of Liquid Glycerin.

add glycerin

 
Step 13
Add 4 ml of Lemon Curd FO.

add lemon meringue fragrance oil

 
Step 14
Using the scale, weigh 1.2 pounds of White Melt and Pour soap base and melt it in a microwave. Slowly pour into the mixing bowl.

Step 15
Whip the “frosting” with a hand mixer until it begins to thicken. Make sure the mixture doesn’t get too hard or it will be difficult to work with. The Meringue will set quickly so be prepared to scoop onto the “lemon filling”.

Step 16
Spritz the 2nd layer with alcohol to ensure adherence of the Meringue soap to the Lemon filling.

Step: 17
Scoop the mixture to the top of each Lemon filled cavity with a spoon. Smooth out the top or leave with peaks.
Note: If the frosting sets too quickly, microwave in a microwave safe container in 15 second burst, then mix as in Step 15.
