Bubble-Doh Cup Cakes

   

Requirements:
1kg Bubble-Doh (Soap Barn)
Marshmallow fragrance (Soap Barn)
Mother of pearl glitter (Soap Barn)
Powder colourings (Soap Barn)
Half round mould (Chocolate Den)
Cup Cake mould (Soap Barn)
Cake decorations (Chocolate Den)
Piping bag and nozzle (Chocolate Den)

Method:
Remove some of your Bubble-Doh from the sealed bag. (Always keep your Bubble-Doh in a tightly sealed bag to keep it from drying out.) Mix your fragrance into your Bubble-Doh as much or as little as you like. I think your Bubble-Doh should always smell heavenly so be generous with your fragrance. Add some powder colour and knead the Bubble-Doh well till the fragrance is mixed through.
Dust your mould with bicarbonate of soda to help the Bubble-Doh release easily. Fill your half round mould with Bubble-Doh and then gently knock the shape out of the mould into your hand. Dust the mould again with baking soda and repeat the moulding process. I always find that you get the best results by moulding each shape twice. Do the same for the bottom half of the cup cake. Place the half rounds and the cup cake bottoms on a thick wad of old newspaper covered in paper towelling. Leave them to dry and set.
After about 3 days your Bubble-Doh cup cakes are ready to be decorated. Stick the half round on top of the cup cake bottom with melted glycerine soap (or a little craft glue!)
You can mix some Bubble-Doh with water so you can pipe with it. Colour and fragrance it too. Pipe it around the edges of your cup cake with a piping bag and nozzle just where the two parts are joined. You can also pipe over the top of your cup cake. Sprinkle some glitter onto the cup cake. Now decorate it beautifully with small icing decorations.

Bath Snow Sorbets

Requirements:
500g bath snow (Soap Barn)
Marshmallow fragrance (Soap Barn)
Powder colourings (Soap Barn)
Red glycerine soap for the cherry (Soap Barn)
Vanilla glycerine soap for the chocolate flake (Soap Barn)
Brown liquid soap colour (Soap Barn)
Green glycerine soap for the leaves (Soap Barn)
Leaf cookie cutter (Chocolate Den)
Dessert cup (Chocolate Den)

Method:
Add marshmallow fragrance to the bath snow and mix through well. Divide your bath snow up and colour each part a different colour. Fill your dessert cup with layers of different coloured marshmallow snow.
Melt your vanilla glycerine soap and add brown colouring till you get a chocolate brown coloured soap.
Pour your brown soap onto the counter and leave it to set. Once it has set you can take a big meat knife (non-serrated) and draw it along the top of the brown soap to get thin soap curls which you group together to make a chocolate flake.
Melt the green glycerine soap and pour that also out on the counter. When it has set you can cut your leaves out of it with a leaf cookie cutter.
Cut small chunks out of your red glycerine soap for cherries.
Finally you can pipe your bath mousse on the top of the marshmallow snow sorbet. (See Bath Mousse instructions below). Put your flake into the mousse as well as the cherry and leaves.
Bath snow is an amazing bubble bath and is great for a cleansing relaxing bath after a long hard day. Put a handful of bath snow under the hot water tap as you run your bath. Relax in a wonderful bubble bath that has all the added qualities of bath salts too!

Requirements for Bath Mousse:
500ml Bath/Shower mousse base (Soap Barn)
Marshmallow fragrance (Soap Barn)
Piping bag and nozzle (Chocolate Den)

Method:
Take the lid off the mousse base and place the container of mousse in the microwave on high for thirty seconds. Then empty the contents into a mixing bowl. Add the marshmallow fragrance and beat the mousse with an electric hand beater till it mousse is thick and creamy. Then pipe it over your marshmallow snow through a piping bag and star nozzle.
This is the most heavenly bath/shower product. Cover yourself with this luxurious, soap creme and have the most delicious wash you have ever had in your whole life.

Gel Candy Candle

Requirements:
Gel wax (Soap Barn)
Glass vase
Wick (Soap Barn)
Sustainers (Soap Barn)
Kebab sticks (Chocolate Den)
Romance fragrance (Soap Barn) – Smells exactly like those little pink sweets
Candies:
Jelly beans
Romantics
Mini liquorice allsorts

Method:
Start by cutting your wick to size (and a bit). Melt the gel wax in a pot directly on the stove over a very low heat. When the gel is melted it will run like water. Dip your wick into the melted gel and hold it up so it can set straight. Fasten your sustainer to the bottom of your waxed wick. Position the wick in the middle of the vase using a tiny bit of prestik under the sustainer. Tie the top of the wick onto a kebab stick that balances on the top of the vase. (If you ultimately wish to have a bigger flame you can cut three pieces of wick and plait them. Then dip them in the wax and position them just as you would do with one strand.) Add Romance fragrance to your melted gel and then pour your melted gel into the glass1/5 of the way up. Leave to cool. Drop an assortment of your candies into the gel and leave them to suspend and set in the gel. Leave that layer to set and then pour your next layer and repeat the method till you have filled your vase to the top with different layers. You have to make this candle in stages because you need your sweets to be suspended throughout the candle and if you just fill your vase with gel and drop in the sweets all your sweets will just sink to the bottom. Your candle will burn for months because gel wax is a very slow burner. The house will be filled with the gorgeous scent of Romance.

Bath Time Puzzle

Requirements:
White Farmhouse soap (Soap Barn)
Fruity fragrances (Soap Barn)
Neon paste colours (Soap Barn)
Puzzle mould (Soap Barn)
Large two row box(Soap Barn)

Method:
Melt your white Farmhouse soap, fragrance and colour it and then pour it into the puzzle mould.
Colour the soap with neon/luminous colour paste. Let me warn you that the yellow one smells absolutely terrible and you need to add lots of fragrance to cover that smell. I would leave it out altogether but it makes the most amazing neon yellow and green colours. The yellow mixes with a little blue to make a gorgeous green and the pink mixes with a tiny bit of blue to make a stunning purple. The pink and orange pastes are fabulous by themselves and unlike the yellow they don’t smell bad. Leave to set. Leave for two hours and when the soap in the mould feels cold you can pop it out of the mould. It will feel wet immediately after you unmould it. Leave the soaps for an hour and they will feel dry.
Package your soap puzzles in a large two row box for a wonderful gift. (I leave the box flat and not made up so the pieces fit in nicely. I punched holes at the ends of the box and I threaded ribbon through.

The yellow mixes with a little blue to make a gorgeous green and the pink mixes with a tiny bit of blue to make a stunning purple. The pink and orange pastes are fabulous by themselves and unlike the yellow they don’t smell bad.
Pour the melted, coloured and fragranced soap into the top part of the cupcake mould and leave to set. Leave for two hours and when the soap in the mould feels cold you can pop it out of the mould.

Magic Fruity Bath Tea

Ingredients:
Bath Crystals (Soap Barn)
Powder Dye Colourings - all the colours (Soap Barn)
Fruity Fragrances to match your colours (Soap Barn)
Sealable Tea Bags (Soap Barn)
Half Cube PVC Box (Soap Barn)

Method:
Add 2 cups bath crystals



Add powder dye this will colour the crystals and also the bath water. Match your colour and fragrance.




I have so many fruity fragrances you could choose from: apple, apricot-peach, black cherry, black currant, blueberry, coconut, cranberry, lemon, mango, melon, mulberry, orange, papaya, pear, pearberry, pineapple, pink grapefruit, pomegranate, raspberry, strawberry and tutti-frutti.



Fill your teabags. I find they take about 1 tablespoon of mixture but you could put less if you like



Seal your teabags with heat. You can use an iron or even a heated teaspoon handle. I didn't have an iron with me at work so I used a teaspoon handle. I turned on the stove put the teaspoon handle on the plate for a few seconds and then pressed it down on the open end of the bag for 1-2 seconds. The bags seal very easily. I also thought of using hair straightening tongs and of course a sealing machine will work if you have one of those. Whatever method you use they are all quick and easy.



Finally you can pack your teabags in a half cube PVC box. I got between ten and twelve bags in a box.
Decorate your box attractively because packaging is everything!

Bubble Balls Soap

  

Ingredients:
Cellulose (Soap Barn)
Powder colourings and glitter (Soap Barn)
Fragrances (Soap Barn)
Clear liquid soap (Soap Barn)
Ball moulds (Soap Barn)

Method:
Cut the half round shapes out of your mould, leaving about 1cm around the edges. Also cut a small half moon (size of 10c piece) out of the one side at the edge. Clip the moulds together with bulldog clips. You will have a complete ball shape with a small hole on the one side for filling.

Measure 8 level dessert spoons of cellulose. Put them in a jug and add a pinch of powder colouring. Now add 5ml of fragrance because you want your bouncing bubble bath balls to be very fragrant. Add half a cup of just boiled water over the cellulose and stir very well till all the cellulose has dissolved. You can put the mixture into the microwave for 30 seconds - this will help it dissove further. Now add one cup of clear bubble bath to your mixture. Again, mix this through very well till you have a smooth, even mixture. Add your glitter. Pour this mixture into the ball moulds you assembled earlier. You can either stand them upright on their bulldog clips or place them in a bowl so they remain upright with the entry hole on top. Leave them to stand for about half an hour and then place them in the fridge to set. They should be fully set within half an hour. Remove them from the moulds and have loads of fun!

Leave the balls to air dry for a day or two before you package them. Package them in PVC boxes so that they can don't dry out and harden but can still breathe.

Using Bubble Bath Balls :
These gorgeous, wonderful smelling balls make the best bathtime toys. Throw one into the bath as you run your hot water. The ball will slowly dissolve and your bath will be filled with beautiful smelling bath foam. Your children (and the child in you) will love playing with these balls in the bath.

Bath Art Soap Crayons

   

Ingredients:
White glycerine soap (Soap Barn)
Fruity fragrances (Soap Barn)
Crayon dyes (Soap Barn)
Crayon mould (Soap Barn)
Bulldog clips (Soap Barn)
Clear cellophane (Soap Barn)
Crayon labels (Soap Barn)
Medium long PVC boxes (Soap Barn)

Method:
Cut the crayons out of the mould with half a centimetre border around the side. Also cut out the flat, bottom part of each crayon (not the point!). Clip the two sides of the crayon together with bulldog clips. Stand the mould point down in a mug or jug.

You can make bath art soap crayons by mixing in different matching colours and fragrances eg: Red dye and raspberry fragrance, yellow dye and banana fragrance, blue dye and blueberry fragrance, green dye and apple fragrance, orange dye and mango fragrance, pink dye and strawberry fragrance and purple dye with black cherry fragrance.

Melt your kilo of white glycerine soap gently in a pot on the stove over a low heat, or in the microwave in a plastic jug on defrost. Then add 10ml of fragrance and half a tub of dye to 200ml flexine (to1kg soap). Stir well till the dye has dissolved and the flexine is a bright, even colour. Add your coloured flexine to the soap and stir through well. The colour of the soap should be very intense. Leave your soap to cool a bit. Then pour the soap into the crayon moulds and leave to set. Leave for two hours and if the soap in the mould feels cold you can take off the bulldog clips and pop the bath art soap crayon out.

Wrap the body of the crayon in cellophane and then stick on your soap crayon label. You can then put a crayon in a medium long PVC box as a wonderful gift.

These crayons draw on the bath, on the tiles and on the children. Then they wash off! Best not to draw on non porous surfaces (like grout) because the colour may stain.

Get your children into the bath – keep them in the bath and teach them art!

Bumbles Floating Bubble Bath Balls

Requirements:
Clear Liquid Soap (Soap Barn)
Colour dyes - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink and purple (Soap Barn)
Fruity fragrances (Soap Barn)
Large Balloons (Soap Barn)
PVC cylinder (Chocolate Den)
Download label here

Method:
Pour 100ml clear liquid soap into a jug. Add a pinch of powder dye and mix through well. We use powder dyes because they are very concentrated and will colour the bath water. Add 30 drops of a matching fragrance. eg. red-raspberry, orange-mango, yellow-banana, green-apple, blue-bubblegum, pink-strawberry, purple-pearberry. Pour the coloured and fragranced liquid soap into the balloon. Put the lip of the balloon over the end of your kitchen tap and gently fill the balloon with water. I filled mine enough so I could fit three in a long cylinder. But you can fill them as much as you like. Let’s say anywhere between the size of a plum and an orange. Then tie the balloon tight with a knot. Place the balloon in the freezer to prepare your Bumble for the bath. If you are giving the Bumbles as gifts or selling them then just package them with a note explaining that they must be frozen before use. The label will explain it all so you can print out this label and package your Bumbles using the instructions.

Using Bumbles:
Remove the Bumble from the freezer. Snip the balloon open. Pop the Bumble into the bath as you are running the water. Your Bumble will float on top of the water. As it dissolves it will fragrance and colour the water and make the best bubbles.

Pour the coloured and fragranced liquid soap into the bottle over the PVC strips. The effect is AMAZING! Your stickers will appear magically suspended throughout the bubble bath.

Gently melt the soap in a pot on the stove or in the microwave in a plastic jug. You will always get the very best results from soap that has been melted slowly over a low heat. The cooler your melted soap, the better your end result. Divide your melted soap into separate pots or jugs for all the colours you intend to make. Dissolve your powder dyes in a little water and then add them to the melted soap. Stir through well till the soap is dark with colour. We make these crayons dark so they can be used for drawing on the bath and drawing on the body in the bath. Leave the soap to cool and thicken. When it is cool pour it in to the mould right to the top. Leave for two hours to set. Remove the clips from around the mould and un-mould your crayon soap. Leave your soap a day or two to dry and harden. Then wrap the crayon (not the point, just the body) with cellophane and then complete your product with the label you have downloaded from the website.

Easter Fizz for your Bath

 

Requirements:
1kg Fizz-Bop (Soap Barn)
Ocean Mist Fragrance (Soap Barn)
Blue powder dye (Soap Barn)
Round cookie cutter (Chocolate Den)
Yellow rubber duck (Soap Barn – limited stock item)
Bath Fizz sticker (Soap Barn)
Cellophane (Chocolate Den)

Method:
Heat your Fizz-Bop in the microwave for 1 minute to soften it. Then mix your dye with your fragrance (as much as you like). Add that mixture to the crumbly Fizz Bop. Mix through well. I like to use plastic gloves when using the dye because it is very concentrated. Use the powder dye if you want your Fizz Bop to colour the water. Use powder colour (as opposed to dye) if you don't want your water to change colour. Pack your Fizz Bop into a tight 2cm block on the counter and then cut round shapes out with your cookie cutter. I found that in the current hot climate I needed to put my Fizz Bops into the fridge to set quickly. In winter you won't have to do that. Wrap your round blue ponds in cellophane. Hold your hairdryer over the cellophane to shrink it so you have a lovely neat finish. Place a Bath Fizz sticker on the side and put some double sided tape on the bottom of your yellow rubber duck. Stick your duck on top. Once you have settled into your bath, drop the blue fizzing pond and the duck into the water for the best fun bath you ever had - fizzing blue ocean mist water shared with a rubber duck! Fizz-Bop will soften the water, soften your skin, refresh and revitalise your skin and nourish it with gorgeous oils.

Method:
Cut your egg moulds out with a half cm border around the edge. Divide your Soap-Doh into separate parts for all the colours you would like to make. Colour each part with powder dye (this is very concentrated and you will achieve excellent results with it – I recommend you use plastic gloves while mixing in the colours or you will have coloured hands the whole day!) Fragrance each coloured Soap-Doh with a matching fragrance. I like to mix my colour into the fragrance first and then mix it through the Soap-Doh. It seems to work better that way. Fill each half egg with one colour Soap-Doh. Make sure you fill it right to the top (full full full) so that there is not place for air. Air will dry out your product. Close the back of each half egg with broad sellotape – which will adhere to the edges of the mould. You can stick two half eggs together with double sided tape. Package the eggs in cellophane or in boxes or even loose. Using Soap-Doh: This product is a play dough for bath time. It is soft, smooth and gentle on the skin.

Soap Candies - Liquorice AllSorts

Requirements:
Flat metal tray
White bubblegum Farmhouse soap (Soap Barn)
Black glycerine soap (Soap Barn)
Soap colours (Soap Barn)
Cellophane bags for packaging (Chocolate Den)
Soap stickers (Soap Barn)

Method:
Melt your white soap gently in the microwave or in a pot on the stove. Separate it out in five parts and colour each part a different colour. Pour a thin layer of coloured soap and leave it to set. When it is warm but set pour a thin layer of hot black soap over the first layer. Leave that layer to set and then pour a hot layer of the original colour over the black layer. This is very important: If the second and third layers are not hot enough to melt the layer underneath a little then they will not stick. Your layers will separate when you cut up the soaps. So make sure that you are pouring hot soap over the first layer and hot soap over the second layer. Un-mould the soap out of the tray when it has set and then cut your soaps into small squares for normal liquorice allsorts or into very small squares for mini liquorice allsorts. Remember to put soap stickers on all your soap candies. This is to let everyone know that although they look exactly like the real thing, they are in fact soaps and not edible.

Remember to leave the soap to cool a little once it is melted. When it forms a skin on top it is ready to pour. An important tip when making soap candies is to pour your soap right to the top of each mould. When you under fill a mould the soap is difficult to un-mould once set. When the soaps have set you can un-mould them and package them. Remember to put soap stickers on all your soap candies. This is to let everyone know that although they look exactly like the real thing, they are in fact soaps and not edible.
