Orange Juice Cake Bubble Bars RecipeOrange Juice Cake Bubble Bars Recipe

The Natures Garden fragrance oil of the month for February 2020 is Orange Juice Cake! To showcase this delicious homemade pastry scent, we created a few new recipes using it. We will be writing and sharing blogs on each of them! The first one we would like to introduce is this Orange Juice Cake Bubble Bars Recipe. These turned out beautifully, looking like a mini version of actual orange juice cake! This cake is an original recipe coming from the Natures Garden owner’s family! It is scrumptious, moist, and bursting with fresh flavors. We designed this fragrance oil to emulate this cake perfectly. Our recipe for this bubble bar is going to make your skin feel incredibly soft, as well as creating a ton of foam and bubbles for your baths. They are made using a surfactant that we just recently brought to the website, SLSA. You are going to love how this product feels and how it smells too!

Total Recipe Amounts for Icing:

Clean and sanitize your workstation along with all of your utensils. There are many dry ingredients involved with this recipe, which can create clouds of powder in the air. Therefore, it is suggested by us that you wear gloves, an apron, a face mask, and a hair net while when preparing this. Also, you will want to prepare your bottle of rubbing alcohol that will be used in one of the last steps.

Mixing the Dry IngredientsMixing the Dry Ingredients

To begin, you are going to need a couple of mixing bowls and a digital scale for weighing. We will be measuring and working with the dry ingredients in the recipe first. Take out a larger mixing bowl for this portion. First, we are going to weigh out 330 grams of the SLSA. This product is very important in this recipe. SLSA is a surfactant that is a great foaming agent for products like bubble bars, shampoo bars, and bath bombs. It helps your skin to feel extra soft after use and creates so many bubbles for the bath. Next, add to the same bowl 460 grams of the baking soda, 224 grams of the cream of tartar, and 72 grams of the corn starch. Mix all of these powder ingredients together well, using your hands.

Break Up the ClumpsBreak Up the Clumps

We use our hands in the mixture to help break up any clumps of powder we might find. Baking soda tends to be very clumpy, and it is important to break all of these up. Otherwise, your bubble bars will not be mixed as thoroughly and there might be bits of powder in the mixture, which you do not want for your finished product.

Combining the Liquid IngredientsCombining the Liquid Ingredients 

Set the dry ingredients bowl to the side. Now, place a separate mixing bowl on the scale. You need to weigh out 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the fractionated coconut oil, and 14 grams of the Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. We chose fractionated coconut oil as our carrier oil due to the properties it has. This oil contributes to the hardness, cleansing, and bubbly lather in cosmetic products. Each one of these qualities is desirable in bubble bars, which you want to create a lot of bubbles in the bath and cleanse the skin at the same time. Our Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil is a combination of pound cake, orange zests, vanilla, caramel, and coconut. This scent is original to Natures Garden and one of our best sellers!

Combining the Mixing BowlsCombining the Mixing Bowls

For the next step, we are going to add the bowl with the wet ingredients to the bowl containing all of the powdered ingredients. Then, you can start mixing them together with your hands. We used our hands because using a spoon may cause the powders to get released into the air and we could lose some of our product, which we do not want to happen.

Forming the DoughForming the Dough

Continue to thoroughly mix the ingredients together. You want to keep going until it reaches the consistency of dough. It may take some time working with it before it reaches this point. Remember to lift and fold the mixture continuously to get the powders at the bottom of the bowl fully incorporated into the rest of it.

Creating the Brown ColorantCreating the Brown Colorant

Next, you will need to get out a small bowl. We are going to be hand making the brown colorant portion of this batter. This step is similar to mixing a facial mask. In your small bowl, weigh out 4 grams of cocoa powder organic. To this, add 20 grams of vegetable glycerin. Mix the ingredients together thoroughly, until there are no longer any clumps from the cocoa powder. Spoon this mixture into the dough batter.

Mix in the ColorantMix in the Colorant

After you have added in the cocoa powder mixture, fully incorporate it into the dough. Evenly fold over the batter repeatedly until you no longer see clumps of brown throughout it. This is just one of the colorants we will be adding to these bubble bars!

Add in Additional ColorantsAdd in Additional Colorants

Once the brown colorant has been fully mixed in, we can move onto the other colors we need. Natures Garden carries multiple FUN Soap Colorants that offer vibrant shades to give color to your soap and body products. For this recipe, we used the shades Orange Oxide, Yellow Oxide, and Black Oxide. Add in 15 drops of the orange, 5 drops of the yellow, and 2 drops of the black. We added these one at a time to see what shade we would be getting, and we were satisfied with our result. This combination gives a nice color to the dough that resembles the look of actual orange juice cake.

Incorporate the Colorants TogetherIncorporate the Colorants Together

After each color is added, we are once again going to use our hands to mix everything together. Continue to knead the dough, especially at the bottom, until the color is evenly dispersed throughout it. An important thing to remember is if the bubble bar dough is too crumbly, you can always add a bit more vegetable glycerin to help. We did not end up having to do this for this recipe, but depending on how your ingredients were measured, you may need to. However, make sure not to add too much vegetable glycerin, or your dough will become too wet and the product will not set up properly. 

Pack the Soap MoldPack the Soap Mold

Now we are all finished with the dough! Take out the silicone bundt cake soap mold and pack the bubble bar dough tightly into it. There should be enough batter to fill all four of the bundt cake cavities. You want to pack it in tightly so that your product is cohesive and sets up together. Allow your bubble bars to set up. You will know they are ready once they have hardened. It took ours approximately 24-48 hours to set up completely. However, it can take longer depending on the climate of your environment.

Remove the Bubble Bars Remove the Bubble Bars

Once the bubble bars have had enough time to finish setting up, you can go ahead and pop them out of their molds. Make sure that you have waited enough time before this step. If not, the bubble bars may crack and crumble instead of remaining in one piece. We removed ours onto a silicone mat to prepare for the next few steps, which can get messy.

Cut Up the Melt and Pour SoapCut Up the Melt and Pour Soap

Now, we are going to prepare the icing for our bundt cake bubble bars! You will need to take 5 cubes from a slab of one of our white melt and pour soap bases. We decided to use Shea Butter, but any of the white colored bases will work fine to resemble icing. Slice the cubes up into smaller pieces and place them in a microwave safe bowl. Then, melt them in the microwave in 30 second intervals until the soap is fully melted. 

Fragrance the IcingFragrance the Icing

After it is melted, add to it 6 grams of Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. We also want to match that with 6 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. This is because some fragrance oils can cause discoloration to soap and we need ours to stay white in order for it to look like icing. Once those two are added, stir to incorporate everything.

Apply the Soap IcingApply the Soap Icing

Carefully, drizzle the melted soap over your bundt cake bubble bars. Pour it gently and in a back and forth motion, as you would ice cinnamon rolls. Then, grab your bottle of rubbing alcohol that you prepared at the beginning of this recipe. Spray the bubble bars with the melted soap on them with the rubbing alcohol. This will help out for the last step.

Top the Bubble Bars OffTop the Bubble Bars Off

The final step in the recipe is to top our bubble bars off with “nuts”. We needed to spray the icing with rubbing alcohol in order to get these to stick. Take orange peel, cut and sifted, and sprinkle it on top of the bubble bars. This step helps complete the look of authentic orange juice cake. Allow some time for everything to dry before moving them. Once they are finished drying, you have completed this fun project!

Your Orange Juice Cake Bubble Bars are now ready to be used! When you want to put the bubble bars to use, all you have to do is simply crumble up some pieces from one of them. Place these under your warm running bath water and see the wonderful bubbly lather these create! We hope you enjoyed following along with us to make these!

Sweet Rolls Dessert Recipe

Since these orange juice cake bubble bars look like real cinnamon rolls, we thought we would share a delicious dessert with all of you! These Homemade Orange Sweet Rolls by Sally’s Baking Addiction are a perfect representation of our bubble bars. This is a blog full of all different kinds of recipes that are simple to make and delicious to eat. All of the orange lovers out there will really like this take on traditional cinnamon rolls. The orange flavored glaze adds a really nice touch to these as well. Give them a try and enjoy!

Total Recipe Amounts for Icing:

11 Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil
4 heaping teaspoons Orange Peel Cut & Sifted

Clean and sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, an apron, gloves, and a hair net while preparing this recipe. Also, prepare your PET bullet bottle with rubbing alcohol. 

Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil

Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden Soap Making Supplies is the aroma of buttery pound cake. Then, you will find middle notes of orange zest. This orange bakery scent finishes with base notes of vanilla,  creamy coconut, and warm caramel. Anyone who has tasted Deborah’s mom’s famous orange Juice cake will love this one! Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil is not only a Natures Garden original fragrance oil, it’s also a best selling aroma.

Cut the Mango Butter Soap BaseCut the Mango Butter Soap Base

To begin creating our soap recipe, we need to prepare our slab of melt and pour soap base. Any of the white bases sold at Natures Garden will be sufficient for making this soap recipe. We sell 11 melt and pour soap bases, 8 of which are white in color that you can choose from. However, for this soap making recipe, we used the mango butter mp soap base. With your digital scale, weigh out 680 grams of soap for the cakes. This is equivalent to about 30 cubes from the slab. The remaining 10 cubes, or 236 grams, will be used at the end of this recipe.

Melt the SoapMelt the Soap

Next, place the cubes in a microwave safe bowl and melt them in 30-second increments. Stir gently in between each 30-second burst to check if there are any chunks of soap lingering. Once it is in a fully melted liquid state, you can pull the bowl out of the microwave.

Add Fragrance Oil and Color StabilizerAdd Fragrance Oil and Color Stabilizer

In the next step, we are going to add scented oil to our soap. Using the digital scale, you will need to measure out and add 34 grams of the Nature’s Garden Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. In addition to that, you will want to match it up by adding 34 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. This step is necessary because some fragrance oils will discolor your products just due to the way they are made or mixed. This fragrance oil, in particular, discolors to a dark chocolate shade due to its vanillin content. Adding in the vanilla white color stabilizer can help us to prevent our soap from discoloring due to the vanilla content. After you add that, stir until it is evenly distributed. 

Incorporate the Brown ColorantIncorporate the Brown Colorant

Now, take out a small glass bowl. We are going to mix 4 grams of the Cocoa Powder Organic with 8 grams of Vegetable Glycerin. This mixture is going to form a nice dark brown colorant for our soap. Once it is mixed together and liquefied, add it into the melted soap and stir to incorporate.

Mix in the Other Soap ColorantsMix in the Other Soap Colorants

Next, we need to get the other colorants out for our soap. We used the yellow oxide, orange oxide, and black oxide shades from our FUN Soap Colorants. Take the mixture and add 15 drops of yellow, 8 drops of orange, and 2 drops of black. Then, take a spoon and stir everything evenly together to incorporate the colors with your soap base. After you are finished stirring your soap, the shade should look somewhat similar to our picture to the left. We wanted these to resemble actual orange juice cake, and we liked the shade that this combination of colorants produced. You can always adjust how the color looks if you are not satisfied or would like to make it your own!

Pour the Mixture into the MoldsPour the Mixture into the Molds

Once your melted soap is fragranced, colored, and evenly mixed, you can get the bundt cake silicone soap mold ready. Pour the mixture up to the top of three of the cavities. You will have enough soap to fill up three out of the four bundts.

Spray the SoapSpray the Soap

Now, grab your bullet bottle with rubbing alcohol in it that you prepared earlier in the recipe. Spray your soap in each of the bundts with the rubbing alcohol. This is going to remove any air bubbles that formed. Then, allow some time for all three of the cakes to completely set up before moving onto the decorative toppings!

Remove Soap from MoldsRemove Soap from Molds

Once some time has passed, you can go ahead and remove the soap bundts from their molds. You can either place them on a plate or on the flexible silicone mat from Natures Garden. We decided to use the mat because the next step is going to get a little messy. Place it on a 9″ x 13″ baking pan to give you stability and an easier cleanup. Alternatively, you can line the pan with wax paper, if you prefer.

Melt Down Soap for the IcingMelt Down Soap for the Icing

For the next step, you will need to retrieve the remaining 10 cubes (236 grams) of the melt and pour soap base from the first step. In another microwave safe bowl or glass container, melt the soap down in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time. Continue melting until your mango butter melt and pour soap base is in a completely liquid state. Then, add in 11 grams of Orange Juice Cake Fragrance and match it with 11 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Once again, this will help our soap to stay white, which is necessary in order for it to look like icing. Stir well to blend these ingredients. 

Pour Icing onto the SoapsPour Icing onto the Soaps

Now, you will want to use your bottle of rubbing alcohol once again to spray the tops of the bundts. This is going to allow the layer of icing to stick when it is poured over the bundts, as well as for the orange peel to stick in the next step. Carefully drizzle the melted soap base over them back and forth to look like icing. 

Apply the Orange Peel FinishApply the Orange Peel Finish

Since traditional orange juice cake is topped with nuts, we wanted to make sure we depict that in this soap recipe. So, top your soaps off by sprinkling on some pieces of orange peel cut & sifted to resemble the nuts. Orange peel is loaded with vitamins and nutrients that are great for the skin. It can also be used as an anti-bacterial. These qualities make it a great ingredient to add to soap and various other bath or body products. It can be used in bath tea, facial masks, bath salts, shampoo, bath bombs, and lotion. Once the icing has set up and dried, the soap will ready to use!

The Finished ProductThe Finished Product

After you have applied the icing and the orange peel to your soap, they should look like this picture here. The icing will probably have made a mess and spread like ours did. So, once your soap icing has finished setting up, you can remove the excess icing surrounding the soap cakes. It will not take long for the soap to harden and become easier to remove than it would when it is still wet.

Your soap cakes will be ready to use after that! You can set them on the shelves in the shower or the edge of the tub for a nice display. We hope that you had a fun time following along with us making this Orange Juice Cake Soap Recipe.

Clean and sanitize your materials and the area you will be working in before beginning to prepare this recipe. Wearing gloves is especially suggested due to the multiple candle dyes you will be working with when making this recipe.

Prepare the Orange SlicesPrepare the Orange Slices

We will start by preparing the orange slices that will be placed on the top of the finished wax tarts. This will give them time to set up while we prepare the rest of the recipe. With the measurement guide laid out above, we will first weigh out the pillar of bliss wax. You can pour it directly into a pouring pot. We will be using the double boiler method multiple times within this recipe. Melt it down on the stove top. Once it is melted, you can remove the pouring pot from the stove. Then, add in 1 drop of Orange Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye followed by 4 grams of Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. 

Pour Into the MoldsPour Into the Molds

After the orange colorant and fragrance oil are added, mix them in thoroughly and evenly by stirring with a spoon. Then, go ahead and pour the mixture carefully into the cavities of your orange slices mold. It might make a bit of a mess, but that is easier to clean up after the wax has hardened. The mold makes ten orange slices, which we cut in half in a later step. Since the recipe makes 24 wax melts, you will need to refill some of the cavities to have enough for the full project. Once you have the cavities filled, put the mold off to the side. We will return to these in a later step once they have completely set up. 

Weigh Out the Pillar of Bliss WaxWeigh Out the Pillar of Bliss Wax

There are going to be three main layers to these wax melts. We will be calling the first one the crust, since these look like a tasty layered dessert. To make this layer, we need to weigh out more of the pillar of bliss wax. Measure out approximately 100-103 grams. Using the double boiler method again, melt it down to a liquid state. 

Add Colorant to the WaxAdd Colorant to the Wax

Once there are no more clumps of wax we can remove it from the double boiler. The crust layer is of course going to need to be brown, so we need to incorporate some colorant. However, we want to refrain from making it too dark. Start by adding in only 1 drop of the brown spectrum liquid candle dye. Then, take the yellow spectrum liquid candle dye and dip the tip of a toothpick in it. Stir this into the liquid wax. The yellow should prevent us ending up with too dark of a crust. Now you can add in 10 grams of the Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. Grab a mixing spoon and stir everything together.

Pour Crust Layer in MoldsPour Crust Layer into Molds

Set the 24 cavity Brownie Bites Mold out for this step. Take the colored mixture and pour in into all 24 of the cavities. The important thing to remember in this step is to only filled each cavity 1/4 of the way. Since we still have a few more layers to put on top of this one, we need to make sure that they will all fit in the molds. Allow this first layer to set up and harden before moving onto the next layer.

Preparing the Middle LayerPreparing the Middle Layer

When the crust is set up or is nearly there, we can start preparing the second or middle layer of these wax tarts. Weigh out 200 grams of pillar of bliss wax. For a third time, use a double boiler to melt it down. Remove it from the stove top and we will add our colorant. This middle layer needs to be light in color, like a cream shade. So, we will take another toothpick and dip it into another the yellow candle dye. Each of the layers in our recipe can be adjusted to make it your own. If you would like different colors, feel free to make them! Swirl the toothpick into the melted wax and add in 20 grams of Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. Then, pour this layer into the 24 cavity mold on top of the crust, filling it 1/2 of the space of the cavities. Once again, wait for this layer to set up before you start on the next one.

Forming the Top LayerForming the Top Layer

Now, we can begin to prepare our third layer, the top one. Just as we have been, weigh out 100 grams of the pillar of bliss wax and melt it. Once it is melted, we are going to add color to it. We want this layer to have an orange tint to it. Depending on the shade you desire for your tarts, you can add more dye than we chose to. Taking yet another toothpick, dip it into the orange spectrum liquid candle dye and incorporate it into the wax. Then, add in your 10 grams of Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil to scent it. Top off the brownie bite molds with this layer, filling up the last 1/4 that is still left. Allow this layer to dry before moving on. 

Melting the Joy WaxMelting the Joy Wax

At this point, each one of the layers should be set up all of the way. The next layer we have to make is the whipped fluffy topping that really ties these wax melts together. Once again, you will need your scale to weigh out some wax. However, this time we will be using Joy Wax! Measure out 200 grams and put it in a pouring pot to melt it with a double boiler. After it melts, add in 20 grams of Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. Stir with a mixing spoon to incorporate the scent into the melted wax.

Whipping the Joy WaxWhipping the Joy Wax

Allow the Joy Wax to sit for a few minutes. Then, take out either an electric hand mixer or you could also use a regular spoon for this step. Both of them will work just fine. Take the tool you choose and begin whipping the wax on and off until the mixture starts thickening up. It should eventually reach a consistency similar to Vaseline, and it should look clear. Once it reaches that point, you can get ready to top off your wax tarts!

Apply the Whipped Wax

Take a regular sized spoon to scoop small amounts of the whipped topping onto the wax melts. Make sure you are placing the topping on the center of your tarts so that everything looks symmetrical. As it sets up, the color of the whipped wax is going to turn more white and stiffen up a little. Then it is really going to look like the fluffy white topping we are looking for!

Remove the Orange SlicesRemove the Orange Slices

While the Joy Wax is setting up, we can return to the orange slice mold from the very first step in the recipe. They definitely will be completely set up and ready to go by now. It does not take very long at all for these to harden. So, go ahead and pop each of the orange slices out of the mold cavities. 

Place the Oranges on TopPlace the Oranges on Top

In order for the oranges slices to look more proportionate to the smaller wax melts, we decided to cut them in half. Otherwise, they would have looked too big for the size of the mold. The Joy Wax will have turned white by now, bringing the look together. Simply place these oranges on the tops of each mold and you are finished with this project!

Your Orange Juice Cake Wax Melts Recipe is now finished! When you want to use them, all you have to do is simply place one in a potpourri burner or wax burner. These are super easy to share with friends as well as a little gift since it makes a total of 24 tarts. We hope you enjoyed creating this new recipe with us!
