Anne-Marie's Bath Bomb Cupcakes

Anne-Marie from Bramble Berry, had a crafty weekend recently, and after a few hiccups - she made these fabulous bubbly cupcakes! Some of the ingredients are the same as available in Australia, some are not, so I substituted similar products where necessary.

From Anne-Marie:

I used the Wilton Easy Decorating Frosting Kit (available in cook shops and large supermarkets or use a similar cake decorating nozzle & piping kit.  Having the extra tips were perfect and made the cupcakes look ultra professional.  Two days later, the frosting has dried to a hard plaster-like cast and will easily make it through the mail with proper packing.

Stage One

Example Recipe:

  1. Mix Citric Acid and Bicarbonate of Soda there are no clumps
  2. Add the SLSA and/or Bentonite Clay
  3. Mix in the fragrance and colour

Stage Two


For the frosting:

  • 3 Tablespoons Meringue Powder/Powdered Egg Whites - supermarket
  • 450g Powdered or Icing Sugar - supermarket
  • 5 Tablespoons warm water
  • 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar

Stage Three

  • Mix Meringue into warm water first.

  • Add cream of tartar and Powdered sugar.

  • Whip on medium speed for 4 to 7 minutes.

  • Frosting will form stiff peaks and harden within an hour (or so!).

  • To make it smell better, use a dab of Butter cream flavour oil.

  • Use some pink icing colouring to colour "frosting."

Gorgeous!

If the texture is not a dry pie dough consistency, spritz on witch hazel until dry powdered product easily sticks together
