A short YouTube demo of a finished Bubble Bath Bomb Cupcake:

If you've seen the adorable piped cupcake bubble bath bombs and you're dying to make these for yourself, you're in the right place! I have cracked the code on getting solid bubble bath to pipe like cupcake frosting & still dry very hard. My recipe doesn't contain meringue powder, royal icing, melt & pour soap, sugar or expensive foaming bath whip or bath butter. Now, you can make these adorable bath treats at home!

This DIY Bubble Bath Bomb Cupcake Tutorial & Recipe download includes:

*A recipe & guide for the "cake" portion of the cupcake which is a bubbling bath bomb. It foams & fizzes like mad! Also included are how to make color embeds for "confetti cake." It's a long fizzing, foaming bomb.

* A recipe & guide for the piped bubblebar "frosting." (It's not the same recipe as The Ultimate DIY Bubblebar recipe. That recipe is rollable, this one is not.)

*There are BONUS directions on how to use the frosting recipe to make your own reusable bubble wands and a powdered product called Bubbles & Fizz Fusion! The frosting dries very hard and is perfect for making bubble wands.

*A supplier list to get ingredients economically

*11 pages total jam packed with step by step detailed info & lots of tips & pictures so you're guaranteed success!

This recipe is nice on skin, not drying. It holds fragrance well & looks amazing.The bomb foams madly and is a perfect back drop for color tabs if you choose to make them. All of the ingredients needed are able to be purchased in soap supply places and Amazon. (see below)

You'll need a stand mixer or hand mixer for the frosting & piping bags & jumbo or large frosting tips. You'll need the hard sided cardboard cupcake cups or nut cups for the "cake" because they don't fall off like the thin papers do. Party supply places, Amazon, baker's supply places & hobby stores have these in the cake decorating section.

INGREDIENTS you'll need to make these:

Dry: baking soda, citric acid, SLSa, cream of tartar, tapioca OR cornstarch, mica, FD&C or lake dyes, cocoa butter

Liquid: Avocado/almond or another lightweight oil, vegetable glycerin, castor oil, skin safe vanillin free fragrance oil, polysorbate 80, 40-50% concentration alcohol like rubbing alcohol or vodka. (You *cannot* substitute a 70% or 91% alcohol but you can use those to make 50% concentration by adding water to it.)

This is a digital download. No other items included.

PLEASE NOTE: I would like people to know the nature this recipe before they buy. The downside to this frosting recipe is you have to move fast & have a limited time piping. You may not be able to do more than 2 colors in one frosting batch/piping bag. I recommend only 1 color for the first batches. Once your liquid ingredients hit the dry, you have to bag the frosting all at once to limit exposure to the air & then pipe fast.

The PLUS side to this recipe is that the frosting dries very hard & survives shipping. I designed this recipe to give as much time as possible to pipe without compromising the firmness but you don't have time to play with this like my rollable solid bubble bath recipe. To me, the limitations are worth the result since I ship all my products and drying hard was my primary concern. In 24 hours, you can package these. They can be sold at a day old in shops & shipped when they are 3 days old.

If you want a recipe that gives you tons of time to play and do intricate color combinations, this one isn't it! FBW recipes give tons of time to play, but they don't dry. This recipe is my solution to frosting recipes that never dry hard, but this is a recipe for the more experienced bath & body crafter. It isn't as simple as my rollable solid bubble bath, which I feel like anyone can make. If you want a more simple recipe, try that one instead. Piping experience & speed will help you tremendously with this recipe. I recommend considering halving the batch for your first attempt to limit any ingredient losses. I'm happy to help you trouble shoot if you have any issues. Be sure to read all the tips in the recipe before you start & DO NOT make ingredient substitutions. It's not friendly to subs.

Make sure your local PO and UPS knows where to safely leave your packages and pick them up promptly. We pack boxes full and tight, so don't use a box cutter to open.

We are happy to enter the claim for you on USPS should one be needed and accommodate a reshipment of your package if a claim is paid. If you enter the claim online yourself, we are unable to do anything further for you regarding your damaged package. To file a claim, you must notify Two Wild Hares no more than 7 days after the delivery of your package with pictures. In some cases, we will have to wait on USPS approval to proceed with your replacement package. Don’t throw away the packaging until your claim is completed.

If your package is missing in action, we unfortunately have to wait 15 days to file a claim through USPS for domestic packages and 21 days for international packages. We aim for quick and accurate deliveries, but lost packages sometimes happen and are out of our control. Transit times are not guaranteed except for USPS Express 1-2 day packages.
