Pros

  • Fun Concept
  • Cute
  • 3 step process

Cons

  • Very Messy
  • Not Soap Making Kit
  • Soap can't really be used

Canal Toys So Soap Cupcake DIY Kit is a not a soap making kit but soap decorating kit which is very misleading. The kit comes with a soap, dry frosting, topper, measuring spoon, and the bag for the frosting. All you need is to add water.

The issue is you need to add the exact amount of water in the measuring spoon and when you star mixing it seems not enough. If you add even a drop extra the frosting will become very liquidy and the soap will be wrecked, that is what happened to us. The frosting became too liquid and dripped all over, creating a huge mess.

This kit is not really teaching kids DIY and the soap is not even really usable, definitely a pass on this kit.
