Instructions

    1. Add dry ingredients, including glitter to a large bowl.
      Sift or whisk dry ingredients.
    2. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt coconut oil in microwave for 15-20 seconds. Repeat in 15 second bursts until completely melted. Repeat with avocado oil.
    3. Add essential oils to your coconut/avocado oil bowl. Add a few drops of the ivory food coloring and whisk together.
    4. Add this along with the polysorbate 80 to dry ingredients.
    5. Using your hands, break down as many clumps that may be remaining in your mixture. You will know when the mixture is perfect when it feels like wet sand and you can press the mixture together in your hands and it stays together.
    6. Add cupcake liners to a muffin tin and take a scoop of the bath bomb mixture and add to muffin tin. Continue until all cavities are filled. Press down gently. We used the bottom of a small glass to pack it in.
    7. Allow cupcake bath bomb to harden at least 24 hours before adding the soap frosting to the tops.

The soap frosting on these Christmas Cupcake bathbombs make them not only beautiful but even more fun to use and gift. This recipe is super simple!

Instructions

    1. Add whipped soap base and glycerin to mixing bowl.
    2. Add cornstarch to mixing bowl and fold into mixture to avoid it dusting up when you use the mixer.
    3. Add essential oil.
    4. Melt your soap base in microwave safe bowl in 30-minute intervals, stirring after each until melted. Allow to cool down to 140 degrees or about 5 minutes.
    5. Whip mixture on medium speed for 2 minutes and then slowly add in the cooled down soap base. Beat until the mixture forms peaks, like when you make a meringue. If your frosting is not stiff enough, add a bit more cornstarch and mix in. Repeat until the mixture is ice and firm.
    6. Add frosting to your piping bag and pipe frosting onto your cupcake bath bombs. You must work quickly as the frosting will begin to harden after about 5 minutes. At this point, frosting the cupcakes becomes more difficult.
    7. Add a few colorful decorations if desired. We added holiday colored sprinkles.

Notes

After 2-3 days, your frosting will harden enough that if you like, you can easily remove it from the cupcake and use the soap once you have enjoyed your soak in the tub!
