Step 1: Prepare your lye solution. Allow the temperature to drop to room temperature.
Step 2: Prepare your soaping oils. Once you have weighed them out and melted them, allow the temperature of your oils to drop to room temperature.
Step 3: While you are waiting, weigh out the Jamaica Me Crazy Fragrance Oil.
Step 4: Once both the lye solution and soaping oils are at room temperature, combine them and use a stick blender to emulsify them. Add the fragrance oil. Once again, stick blend to incorporate the scent.
Step 5: Next, you will need three empty bowls. To each of these bowls add 1/4 of your soap batter.
Step 6: Now, color your soap batter. Add the colorants as listed on the first page to each of the bowls. One bowl should be colored yellow, one green, one blue, the last bowl white. Stick blend the contents of each bowl to incorporate the colorants.
Step 7: Next, place your mold in front of you. Pour the contents of each bowl into the mold, alternating the colors throughout the mold. However, you will need to save about 8 ounces of the white soap. This will be used to top the soap. Also, save about 8 ounces of the yellow and 3 ounces of the green soap batter.
Step 8: Once you have filled your soap mold, top the soap loaf with the white soap batter, heaping it on top.
Step 9: At this time, you will need to place the green and yellow soap batter in decorating bags with a leaf tip. Each color will need its own bag and tip.
Step 10: Now, we will begin creating our pineapples that will go on top of the white soap. To create the pineapples, begin with a dollop of soap batter. Then, begin at the base of the dollop. Place very small leaves all the way around the base. You want the leaves to pull away from the dollop slightly. This will allow you to begin a second row where the leaf pulls away from the dollop. Once you finish the second row, create a third row. Repeat this process until you have worked your way to the top. You want the pineapple to get smaller as you reach the top. We created about 10 pineapples. You can pipe these on a silicone mat and place them on top later, or pipe them right on top of the loaf.
Step 11: Finally, we will add the green portion of the pineapple. Place a very small dollop of green soap batter on each pineapple. Then, start at the base of the dollop and pull up, creating a long spiked leaf. Continue creating these leaves all the way around the dollop. Then, place a few of the same leaves in the center of the dollop.
Step 12: After 24-48 hours, remove the soap from the mold. Slice the soap. Also, remember, if you chose to pipe your pineapple on a silicone mat. You will need to place them on top of the loaf while it is still soft enough.
Step 13: Once you have sliced your soap, place a decorative umbrella in each bar of soap.
