DIY Handmade Cupcake Bath Bomb Recipe and Tutorial

I am so hungry right now I’ve been eying these handmade Cupcakes Bath Bombs at Little Birdie Secrets and thinking about just how tasty they look. Unfortunately, they are not edible. But that’s not to mean you can’t make them smell that way. Think cotton candy and cherry lemonade icing. Or maybe white cake and buttercream frosting?
Cupcake Bath Bomb Tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets
If you’re a huge fan of relaxing baths or just have kids who love a little something special in the tub, bath bombs make a great tub time addition. And cupcake bath bombs? Well, even better! Little Birdie Secrets offers an excellent step-by-step photo tutorial and recipe for crafting your own tasty scented bath time creations. The bottom cake layer of the bath bomb is your basic bath bomb or bath fizzy, while the top is an “icing” made with meringue powder for fluff (along with some sugar, cream of tarter, water, and color) that you apply to the cupcake just like you would cake icing. Ready to make your own? Surf on over to Little Birdie Secrets blog for the how to.

Or for some giant homemade fizzy bath bomb fun – with packaging that’s about to “explode” – check out Skip to My Lou’s foaming bath bomb recipe and packaging idea for making your bath bombs look like actual bombs.
Crafty in the kitchen but don’t feel like making a mess you’ll just have to clean up later? Catch a laugh at your spouse’s expense and have a little fun with some bananas. I got a kick out of this idea and have filed it away as a best idea EVER.

I recently ran across this lovely freebie for building your own paper cupcakes. You choose your liner, your cake, your icing and finally your topper from an adorable selection of cut and create pieces. It instantly reminded me of when I was a child stuck inside on a rainy day. I would turn the family hallway into a little restaurant with paper place mats along one side of the wall where the seating would be. I made paper foods like pizza, bacon, eggs, and toast and even a menu for my patrons – or rather parents – to choose which meal they’d like to receive. I always had a lot of fun with paper crafts.

When I would stay at my grandmother’s house very early on I would tape pages and pages of blank paper together and draw an entire city on them. It held grocery stores and parking lots, homes and twisty roads for me to drive my matchbox cars on. Later on I carried that same idea to the pavement in the cul-de-sac in front of my house. I used chalk to design roads and stop signs and even houses that were meant to be three-dimensional. I actually drew couches that looked as if you could sit on them. And of course, there were always toilets and sinks.

Another one of my favorite things to draw were houses. When I was little these houses always had attics. And the entire attic served as the closet filled with dresses, blouses, and pants on a rack with shoes lining the entire length of the floor. While I have gotten to drive on roads and sit on my very own couch and yes, my very own toilet, I never quite managed to own a house in which the entire attic was my closet. But then, I’ve never lived in a house with an attic. Maybe someday. I mean, an entire attic full of shoes would be incredible.

If you’d like some more printable paper crafts, I recommend Fantastic Toys on etsy. This shop sells an amazing selection of 3-d printable paper crafts in pdf format that includes doll houses, toys, and even party favors.
