Solid Bundt Cake Salt Scrub Wedding Favors Recipe
6 oz. Epsom salt
5 oz. kokum butter
2 oz. refined shea butter
.5 oz. refined/clear jojoba oil
2.5 mL polysorbate 80, optional
1 mL fragrance oil
1/4 teaspoon purple mica powder
1/4 teaspoon fine cosmetic turquoise biodegradable glitter
fine cosmetic silver biodegradable glitter, to suit
Stephenson white melt & pour soap base, to suit
To make these DIY bundt cake salt scrub wedding favors, begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the kokum butter and shea butter. Combine in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup, then heat in the microwave at 30% power until melted. Alternately you can also use a double boiler.
Remove from heat, then weigh out and stir in the jojoba oil.
Next, using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out the polysorbate 80 as well as the fragrance oil and stir into the wet ingredients.
In a separate container, weigh out the Epsom salt. Now use a measuring spoon to measure out the mica powder and the turquoise glitter and mix into the salt until thoroughly combined.
Pour the colored salt into the wet ingredients and mix well with a fork until both salt and color are even throughout the wet salt scrub base.
Place the container filled with your salt scrub either in the refrigerator or freezer just until it starts to thicken up and the salt stays suspended when remixed.
Mix the salt scrub again, then fill the cavities a mini bundt cake pan of your choice with a cavity diameter of between 1.5″ and 1.75″. (The mini bundt pan mold I used had cavities with a diameter of 1.75″ each. This recipe made eight solid bundt cake salt scrubs.)
Allow the salt scrubs to fully harden then remove from the mold. Then place them on a small plate or cutting board and put them in the freezer.
Now cut an ounce or two of white melt and pour base into chunks and combine in a small scientific glass beaker. Heat in 10-15 second increments in the microwave until melted, then set aside to cool slightly.
When the soap base has thickened slightly but is still pourable, remove the solid bundt cake salt scrubs from the freezer. Mix a small amount of silver glitter into the base, then pour the soap base across the tops of the salt scrubs in several directions so it looks like icing. (If the soap sinks into the salt scrubs, stop, refreeze the scrubs and let the soap cool off further.)
If desired, you can also dust the tops of the solid salt scrubs with additional glitter to suit.
Carefully run a knife under your salt scrubs to remove them from the cutting board.
Then package your solid bundt cake salt scrub wedding favors by placing each one in a mini acrylic cake stand with a lid. (You can purchase mini cake stands along with other packaging materials for your wedding favors from beaucoop.) If desired tie a ribbon and tag around the top of the lid.
To use, simply massage onto damp skin in the shower or bath, then rinse and pat dry.
