Roll tiny pieces of black fondant between your fingers and then pinch slightly to create a seed shape. Make enough to have 6 seeds in each circular cavity.
Place about half of the soap in a large glass measuring cup and microwave for about 40 seconds. Check it and microwave in 10 second increments until the soap is melted.
Stir in pink soap coloring.
Pour a little pink soap into each circle mold (just about 1/4 inch) and top with 3 seeds on each side. Keep in mind you’ll be cutting these in half to create slices.
Top with remaining soap so that each cavity is filled at least 1-inch. Lightly spray the top with alcohol or hairspray (I love this trick!) to remove any air bubbles formed on top.
Let the soap set for about 30-40 minutes. Then carefully press the round cutter into the mold and remove the outside circle of soap. Leave the rest in the mold – it should be firmly positioned in the middle of the cavity. Note, you can save the extra pieces of soap to re-melt for later use.
Heat the remaining soap in a clean glass measuring cup and stir green coloring into the melted soap.
Then carefully pour the green soap around the edge of the mold until it is the same height as the pink soap. Don’t stress if a little lands on top because you can cut it away later. Set aside to harden again for at least 40 minutes.
Remove the soaps from their molds and cut each one in half with a sharp knife. If any green has spilled over onto the front or back of the soap, simply cut it away.
Enjoy! For an additional option, add watermelon scented oil.
