This is an add-on kit to the Royalty Soaps Piping Set. In Katie's series of videos that are exclusive to Nurture Soap, she shows how to make beautiful soap cakes complete with flowers, leaves, and all the trimmings!
You will need a silicone baking pan that we do not offer at Nurture Soap to use this kit. You can find the pans Katie uses here: Silicone Baking Pan.
If you have never watched Katie's videos before, you need to! Katie is adorable, full of sunshine, and so fun to watch. She is also an AMAZING soap maker! You can watch her on Royalty Soaps YouTube Channel.
What you get with the set:
1 ounce jar of titanium dioxide (water soluble).
5 gram jars of New Leaf, Alpine Green, Amaranth Pink, Red Vibrance, and Summer Crush micas.
2 ounce bottle of Persephone's Kiss fragrance oil.
Ateco smoother and decorating comb. This comb will need to be washed immediately after use. It is aluminum and if not washed immediately, it will corrode. We could not find a quality plastic comb to use in its place.
Ateco flower nail.
Piping tips: Ateco #172, # 112, #61, and #127.
Exclusive access to Royalty Soaps' videos with recipes, piping instructing, and how to pipe amazing soap cakes!
Was really disappointed in the quality of the video
I was really surprised when I viewed the video for this kit. It was really hurried, out of focus in places, and the entire process for the rose flowers occurred off camera. I couldn't believe that Katie didn't do another video of higher quality when she saw how this one turned out, especially when this kit costs just a little bit less than the piping set and the piping set came with several very detailed, high-quality videos. Katie didn't mention the tip numbers when she did the demos, just said they're listed below the videos. Katie also apologized a lot when she was making the flowers, saying she wasn't an expert and her flowers didn't always turn out great. It kind of makes me wonder why she decided to do a how-to if she wasn't in the position to teach her method confidently. The video ended with a shot of the GIGANTIC soap cake, and I was wondering how in HECK that thing got cut.Unfortunately, it's still a mystery to me. Bummer. All in all, it just didn't seem up to the quality I expected from Royalty Soaps after watching their other YouTube videos. Frankly, I could have saved myself the cost of this kit by just using the frosting recipe from the piping kit and watching free flower making stuff online.
Well worth your time and $$
The recipes, video and supplies in the kit make it a great value. Lots of good info and tips. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 for 2 reasons. The video does not always show Katie's demo...camera missed the action and Katie states she used 6 oz of the fragrance oil and the kit only contains 2 ounces. So if you want to duplicate the demonstrated recipe / design you will need to place an additional order.

It is a lovely set and hopeful with practice I'll actually make something that resembles a flower! LOL
Good set and informative videos.
