We're just in love with our new Maxi Cup Cake Lip pots, they are sure to brighten anyone's day! We used some of the Maxi Lip pots and as well as some of our Mini Lip pots for this batch You'll find the Maxi Cup Cake Lip Pots here, or Mini Cup Cake Lip Pots here, and of course you can also use our Macaroon Lip Pots or regular Lip Pots or Tubes too!
You can also purchase a kit to make 100g of Lip Balm in our Cup Cake Lip pots here
Each batch makes approximately 50g in weight. The lip balm level should be 10g per pot, any more and the lid will touch the base when you close it, I actually find 9g in the Maxi pots is perfect.
Equipment You'll Need:
- 1 dropper or Pipette
- 1 Pyrex jug or mixing bowl - 250 - 500ml size
- Knife, spatulas etc
- Paper towels
- Remove from Microwave when mixture is completely melted, but be careful not to overheat - aim to work at 70 - 85°C, if it is setting up at 70°C, work a little warmer
Now add lip flavour and Lip Smacking Sweetener to taste (our measurements are just a guide) - test as you go, what is perfect for me, may be too sweet, or not sweet enough for you!
You can test your batch for sweetness by dropping a small amount of balm onto a cold spoon and having a taste, adjust flavour if required
Carefully pour into the pots, just under filling them. If you over-fill them, when you close the lids, the top of the balm will stick to the lids. If the mixture begins to set around the spout or edges of the jug, just give it a short blast in the microwave again
- Allow to set completely, this doesn't take long
- Click down the lid and you are done!
