Oh no! I saw them earlier and thought "wow! Those are really pretty, I'll post later when I have time."

Try to rebatch them!

If I had thought about it, I would have slammed it in a mold really quick. Not sure what I m going to do with it yet. I just keep thinking...

Oh my, what a shame, they were beautiful! Was your batter still cold when you piped it or had it warmed up? I had that happen once when i didnt soap cold enough, now i know to keep the ingrdients cold cold, like 60 degrees or less. Back then though i thought you just got a heavy trace and then piped. I feel your pain and remember the disapointment.

I've never had that happen to my CP cupcakes or any cp frosting for that matter. I just soaped at thick trace and did not insulate at all. In fact, I put some in the fridge. That helps!

You could try doing HP soap frosting from rebatching. I've done it before. Just wear thick gloves cause the soap has to be hoooot to pipe. Also, muffins would look good too!

If you whip a rebatch soap and add water and powdered milk you can get a creamier consistency that is easier to pipe.

The pic below was done w/ whipped hp soap

What a bummer.. I've never had that happen either. I've had the batter heat up in the piping bag once and that was a bust (I soaped too hot). So sorry as they were lovely!

I remade them on Thursday. I popped them in the freezer for 24 hours. I pulled them out yesterday....they started to overheat again! I used the same batter for the top and bottom....the only difference being the addition of cocoa powder the the bottom batter. The bottom seems to be whats overheating. I put them back in the freezer. I was blown away that they attempted to gel and overheat after 24 hours in the freezer.

That's pretty shocking. Do they have added sugar in them?

Every soap I put in freezer reheats 24 hours later once pulling it out. I leave it in fridge another 6-8 hours to prevent this.

Freezer can slow saponification so much so, it really wasn't happening. Pulling it out to room temp speeds it back up and causes it to actually heat right back up. So if you throw it into the fridge after a day in the freezer, it will allow it to warm just slightly enough to finish off saponification, but not allow the temps to raise to the point it otherwise would in room temp conditions.

Ah, interesting! I usually put mine in the fridge and not the freezer now that I think about it... That makes total sense by the way.

Ah I see. When I make soap cupcakes I make the base then wait until the next day to pipe. No I don't have any problem with the tops separating, you should be fine as long as you pipe within 2-3 days.

That's just crazy. I've never had that happen thank goodness. I've done it all at once and two separate days no issues.
