Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Prepping Your Supplies and Work Area

As with any recipe you should always prep your supplies and work area. This helps in creating your craft without stopping to look for your ingredients. First thing is to clean your work space and ensure that you have enough room to work and lay your dough down. Next, give your utensils and scale a quick clean with some soap and water. Lastly, have all your ingredients ready for measuring and withing easy reach! For sanitary reasons go ahead and put your rubber safety gloves on.  Just a few preventative steps will help things move along smoothly!

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Dry IngredientsGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Dry Ingredients

Our first step will be measuring and combining our dry ingredients. You will need a large mixing bowl and your scale. Set your scale to grams.  Next, weigh out 410 grams of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 460 grams of Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda, 224 grams of Cream of Tartar, and 72 grams of Corn Starch. Give these ingredients a nice mixing with your hands, breaking up any clumps as you go.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Wet IngredientsGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing and Combining the Wet Ingredients

Next comes the wet stuff! You will need another mixing bowl ( or you can simply add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl) and your gram scale. Now weigh out 200 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 24 grams of Sesame Seed Oil and 14 grams of Cucumber Fragrance Oil.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing Everything Together

Let’s add the wet and dry ingredients together! If you have mixed your wet ingredients separately go ahead and dump them in with your dry. If you add your wet straight to the dry you can start mixing with your hands making sure that you are breaking up any lumps as you go. Mix until you have the right consistency (you should have a nice, smooth workable dough). If your dough is to crumbly after mixing together, you can add a bit more vegetable glycerin. Be careful to not add too much or the bubble bar will not set up properly.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Bubble Bar Dough

The third step in our recipe will be separating the bubble bar dough. For this you will need your 2 mixing bowls. You will divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Each portion will be a different color. We have included a color chart to help you achieve the correct color for the spots and the “skin” of the giraffe.

Bowl 1:

  • Brown Oxide- 6 drops
  • Orange Oxide- 3 drops
  •  Black Oxide- 6 drops
  •  Red Oxide- 6 drops

Bowl 2:

  • Yellow Oxide- 3 drops

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Brown Colored PortionGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Brown Colored Portion

Now that your dough is separated, let’s start adding color.  We will work on the spots and inner color of the bubble bar. To the first bowl, add your 6 drops of Brown Oxide, 3 drops of Orange Oxide, 6 drops of Black Oxide and 6 drops of Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant. With your gloved hands mix the colorant into your dough until you have achieved an orange brown color.  Roll the dough into a ball and set it aside, for now.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Yellow Colored PortionGiraffe Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Yellow Colored Portion

Next, let’s create the “skin” color of the giraffe. For this you will add 3 drops of Yellow Oxide FUN Soap colorant to your second bowl of dough. With clean gloved hands mix this colorant into your dough until you have a nice, pale yellow color. 

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Getting Ready to Roll the Layers

Now that our dough is separated and colored, we are ready to start rolling the layers. For this step you will use your silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Dust whichever you have chosen to use with some baking soda. This will help keep the dough from sticking when it is time to roll the dough. You should also dust your rolling pin with some baking soda to help prevent sticking.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling out the First LayerGiraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling out the First Layer

Our first layer will be the yellow layer. Go ahead and take your yellow dough ball and lay it in the center of the surface of your mat or paper. Now roll your ball into a flat, rectangular shape.  You will want this layer about 1/4 inch in thickness.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Laying Down the Second LayerGiraffe Bubble Bar: Laying Down the Second Layer

Next up is our Orange brown layer. Before you start rolling, however, you need to pull of about 30 grams of the dough and set this aside. This portion will be for the spots. Place the remaining dough in the center of the yellow rectangle dough and start rolling this layer out. You may add some baking soda to your rolling pin before you start to prevent sticking. Roll this layer out to the size or as close to the size of the yellow layer and at 1/4 inch thick. Once you have finished, you will be all set to move onto rolling the bubble bar dough into a loaf.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Rolling Up The Bubble Bar

Now that your layers are rolled out, you are ready to roll them into a loaf. Turn your silicone mat or parchment paper so that the mat or paper is vertical. Lift up on the edge of the paper or mat that is closest to your body. Begin to carefully roll the dough in the same way you would a pumpkin roll. Slowly roll the dough evenly as you go, watching to make sure everything stays lined up.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Adding the spotsGiraffe Bubble Bar: Adding the spots

Now that your dough is in its rolled up completely, we will begin using the orange brown colored dough we set aside to create our “spots”. Giraffe spots are not perfect in size and shape. This is the look you will want to go for. Pull off irregular size pieces of the reserved dough and add it to the yellow portion of your bubble bar. (Having trouble getting a good pattern in your head? Try Googling “giraffe” and find a pattern you can follow!)  Once your loaf is completely covered you will be ready to slice it up into individual bars.

 

Giraffe Bubble Bar: Slicing your Finished ProductGiraffe Bubble Bar: Slicing your Finished Product

Let’s cut this loaf into slices! This recipe will make about 8 slices, depending on how thick you choose to slice your loaf. Using a sharp knife, slice the bubble bar into 1-2 inch slices. Once your loaf is completely sliced, lay the portions out on a flat surface to set up. Our bubble bars took approximately 48-72 hours to set up completely. This may take longer, depending on the climate of your  environment.

Your Giraffe Bubble Bar is ready to use! When it’s bath time, simply crumble a slice of bar under warm, running bath water and enjoy the bubbles that will froth up into your tub and have a nice, long soak! You will emerge from your bath smelling sweet, fresh and feeling soft and clean!

 

Did You Know?Did You Know?

Have you ever looked at the beauty of a giraffe? I mean, really watched them when you visit a zoo?  They are amazing creatures! Majestic in their movements, they roam the open grasslands in small groups. A giraffe’s height is both an advantage and a disadvantage. While towering at a height ranging from 14 to 18 feet tall they have the ability to spot predators. Their height helps them eat from the leaves of trees since the disadvantage in their height is bending down. It is incredibly difficult for them and it leaves them in a vulnerable state to be attacked.  Luckily, giraffes only need to drink once every several days since most of their water intake is from the leaves they consume. They can also run a steady 35 miles an hour over short distances and comfortably at 10 miles per hour over longer distances. 

Giraffes are truly beautiful animals and their eyelashes! They are to die for! Another fun giraffe fact is that a group of giraffes are called a tower! Kind of fitting, right? Towers usually consist of females and babies, however genders will vary and they can come and go as they please.

Neapolitan Ice Cream Bubble Bars Recipe Clean and Sanitize

Since these are bath products, you really want to make sure that you aren’t accidentally including any dirt or debris. No one wants to soak with a dirty bubble bar! So, before you begin working make sure that everything is clean and ready for you to use! First, retrieve all of your equipment for this recipe. This includes things like the bowls, mixing utensils, and the ice cream scooper. So, make sure that all your equipment is clean. This will prevent any contaminants from getting into your bubble bars. Also, you will want to clean and sanitize your work area. Not only will this ensure that you have enough space to work, but you will make sure that you won’t pick up anything. For example, setting down a utensil on your work surface and using it later. So, this will further prevent potential contamination.

Neapolitan Ice Cream Bubble Bars Prepare Your Dry IngredientsNeapolitan Ice Cream Bubble Bars Recipe Prepare Your Dry Ingredients

First, you are going to weigh out all of your dry ingredients. So, retrieve your large mixing bowl and your measuring device. While you can use measuring cups and a tablespoon to complete this recipe, we suggest using a gram scale. The scale will give you far more exact amounts that will prevent your recipe from being made incorrectly. After you have your measuring equipment, you can begin working with your dry ingredients. So, combine 410 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 460 grams of the Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda, 224 grams of the Cream of Tartar, and 72 grams of Corn Starch. Also, you can see the volume amount above for those using measuring cups. After, make sure to break up any clumps that you find in the powder.

Neapolitan Ice Cream Bubble Bars Prepare Your Wet IngredientsNeapolitan Ice Cream Bubble Bars Recipe Prepare Your Wet Ingredients

Now, you are going to be working with your wet ingredients. So, take your bowl of dry ingredients and tare the weight on the scale. Alternatively, you could weigh these ingredients in a separate bowl before adding it to the dry ingredients. This could be helpful for those worried about pouring too much, as it could alter your recipe. After, add in 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin and 24 grams of the Fractionated Coconut Oil. Now, mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Be sure that you mix everything well and that it is all incorporated.

Further, you will want to check the consistency of the dough at this point. if it is too crumbly, you can add in more vegetable glycerin until you get the right consistency. This will be very important for those that used volume rather than weight, as this ingredient may be too thick to add the amount you needed from the measuring cup. However, you want to be careful not to add too much. If your dough gets too wet, then the ingredients will start to activate in the bowl. So, try to add just the right amount!

Neapolitan Ice Cream Bubble Bars Separate Your Bowl of Ingredients into Three PortionsNeapolitan Ice Cream Bubble Bars Recipe Separate Your Bowl of Ingredients into Three Portions

Next, you will be separating your mixture into three portions. Before you do, make sure that everything is mixed evenly. This will make sure that all the ingredients are going to be present in each bubble bar scoop. Then, you will need three small mixing bowls. Now, divide your mixture into three equal portions. Try to be as exact as possible, but it is okay if you just estimate the amounts for each bowl to contain 1/3 of your original mixture. While all of your bubble bar mixture should be out of the bowl, you will need this bowl again in a later step as you are scooping. For now, just set this large mixing bowl aside.

Then, we will be creating the chocolate ice cream portion. First, you are going to need one of your small bowls.

After, mix these together to create a paste. Now, grab one of your third portions of your mixture. Add the cocoa powder paste to the bowl. Also, add in 5 grams of the Hot Cocoa Fragrance Oil. Make sure to mix this well with either your hands or a mixing spoon. As long as the color and fragrance are evenly mixed, it doesn’t matter which method you use to mix. Then, roll your chocolate portion into a ball and set it aside.
