Cupcake Bathbombs

I made these ages ago and they are amazing!

Makes about 12


  • 0.5 kg Citric Acid
  • 0.9kg Baking Soda
  • Witch Hazel
  • Fragrence: anything sweet – I used Strawberry
  • Silicon cupcake/muffin mould
  • Food Colouring
  • 3 Powdered Egg Whites
  • 45 grams Icing Sugar
  • 5 tablespoons Warm Water
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cream of tartar


1. Place the Citric Acid and Baking soda in your mixing bowl. Using your fingers break up any clumps that might be in the mixture.

2. Add fragrance, the amount is up to you but use a generous amount as it need to fill 12 baths.

3. Add four to seven drops of colour.

4. Mix the colour and fragrance in thoroughly. This is important as clumps of fragrance or moisture can turn into wart-like lumps on your bathbomb.

5. Use a spritzer to spray the witch hazel 6 times onto the mixture and mix in well. Grab some of the mixture and make a fist around it. If the mixture stays together it is ready to mold. If it does not hold its shape, do 3 more Witch Hazel spritzes until the mixture forms a shape in your hand when clenched.

6. Place the cupcake liners in your moulds and press the mixture firmly into them.  The more dense and packed the bombs are, the longer they will last in the bath

8. Let the bombs harden inside the mold.


1. Mix the powdered egg whites with the warm water

2. Whip the egg whites on a medium speed for 4-7 minutes adding the icing sugar as you go until stiff peaks form

3. Add in some colouring and then ice your cupcakes

4. Let them set and they are ready to go!

Have fun!
