I’m heading to Mardi Gras for the first time ever, and I’m getting so excited! That means making at least a few Mardi Gras-inspired DIYs, right? A favorite Mardi Gras tradition is King Cake, so I’m combing the fun of a King Cake with the fun of a bath bomb to make these super cute King Cake Bath Bombs.
King Cake Bath Bombs
To make your King Cake Bath Bombs you’ll need:
- Mini Bundt Mold
- 5 tablespoons Citric Acid
- 11 tablespoons Baking Soda
- 2 tablespoon Epsom Salt
- 5 tablespoons Cornstarch
- 2 teaspoon Almond Oil
- 6 teaspoons Water
- Scented Oil
- Mica Coloring
- King Cake Babies
Mix all of the dry ingredients together, then split them evenly between three bowls. Color the dry mixture in each bowl with a different color of the mica coloring. This was my first time attempting bath bombs with a dry pigment, and it worked really well. The color will be light, but it will darken when you add the wet ingredients. I did put just a few drops of food color in the wet ingredients to get really rich purple, green and yellow bath bombs.
Very slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, just a few drops at a time. You want to avoid getting bubbles as you mix, and you want to stop adding the wet ingredients as soon as the mixture begins to hold it’s shape. It should have the texture of moon sand when it’s ready.
Pack your mold with a little of each color, making sure to press everything firmly into the mold.
Allow your bath bombs to dry overnight, then carefully remove them from the mold. Add your King Cake babies to the center of your bath bomb with a glue dot, then wrap in a cellophane lollipop wrapper for gifting.
