Details

This is our small, round Mooncake Press that makes a small diameter, neat, decorative Salt Cake, Bath Bomb or Shampoo Bar.  It has 6 interchangeable, intricate design disc plates which show to advantage in smoother mixes, but is still evident with fine sea salt.  

If using for Solid Shampoo Bars we recommend dusting the inside of the mould with SCS Needles "dust" or you could use another powdered ingredient such as a starch or Bicarbonate of Soda to stop the stiff mixture sticking.

If you prefer the sharper definition look salt soak cake, use your soaping coffee grinder to powder any ingredients, including large salt crystals.

Diameter:  5cm (has a scalloped edge)
Up to 4.5cm deep (high)
Base to top of handle:  15cm
Number of Design Discs:  6 
Suitable for Salt Cakes, Bath Fizzies and for malleable bath truffle mixes

Name Mooncake Press, Round SMALL
Short Description

Basic Salt Cake Recipe (by volume):

2 cups Epsom Salts
2 tablespoons Bicarbonate of Soda
Up to 2 tablespoons Distilled or Floral Water
Water dispersible Colourant (if preferred)
Essential Oil or Fragrance – our trials were 6 drops Bramble Berry Fragrance per cup of salt

Our tutorial is here in the formulary, and there are loads of video's on YouTube showing the method used to make salt cakes and bath fizzies in this mould.

You can use any of your favourite Bath Bomb or Fizzy recipe in this mould.

TIps:  We found that the recommended ratio of 2:2:2 was too wet (see the graphic of purple blocks).  We also preferred the finer or ground salt so our cakes had more definition in the detail of design.  We added water in the same way as bath bombs, but sufficient to achieve a very moist mixture, but not overly wet.  Many things can affect the water content such as how the salt has been stored, the types of salt and uptake of moisture, humidity etc.

Diameter:  7.5cm (has a scalloped edge)
Up to 4.8cm deep (high)
Base to top of handle:  15.5cm
Suitable for Salt Cakes, Bath Fizzies and for malleable bath truffle mixes
Material:  ABS Plastic
Colour:  White to Off White

TIP:  If you intend keeping these for extended periods include some fixed oil or polysorbate as this helps the mixture hold together better long term.
