Clean and sanitize your work station and all of your utensils. It is suggested that you wear gloves, an apron, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.
Step 1: First, we will prepare our dry ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, add your baking soda, sodium cocoyl isethionate, cream of tartar, and corn starch. Mix well, using your hands to break up any clumps.
Step 2: Next, in a separate bowl, weigh out and mix your wet ingredients. In a mixing bowl, blend the vegetable glycerin, safflower oil, and Rain Fragrance Oil.
Step 3: Now, add your wet ingredients to the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together. Continue to mix until you have a dough consistency. Note: If your dough is too crumbly, you can add a bit more vegetable glycerin. However, be careful not to add too much or your dough will become too wet and will not setup properly.
Step 4: Begin separating your dough. You will need 5 mixing bowls. Separate the dough into equal portions. Place 1/5 of your dough into each bowl.
Step 5: Each of the bowls you prepared will be a different color. Use the guide below to add the colorant to each bowl. Then, using your gloved hands, mix the colorant into the dough. Once you have mixed the colorant into each bowl, roll the dough in that bowl into a ball and set aside.
Bowl 1: Tomato Red – 10 drops
Neon Red- 5 drops
Bowl 2: Neon Orange- 10 drops
Bowl 3: Yelp Yellow- 5 drops
Bowl 4: Neon Green- 5 drops
Bowl 5: Deep Purple- 5 drops
Step 6: Now, we will start rolling out our dough. Before you start, lay down a piece of parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Dust the area lightly with baking soda so your dough doesn’t stick to the mat or parchment paper. Then, place your red bubble bar dough in the center. Roll the dough into a rectangular shape. You want your red layer to be about ¼” thick.
Step 7: Next, place the orange dough right on top of the red, in the center. Roll this layer out. Continue to roll until it is about the same shape and size as your previous layer. So, once you are finished, you will have two layers of dough.
Step 8: Then, place the yellow dough on top of the orange and once again, roll out the dough. Repeat steps 7 and 8 rolling out the green dough followed by the purple dough.
Step 9: We will now start rolling our bubble bar dough into a loaf. You will want to place the rolled out dough in front of you vertically. Then, lift up on the edge of parchment paper that is closest to your body. Begin rolling the dough in the same manner you would roll a pumpkin roll. Roll slowly and evenly until the dough is completely rolled into a loaf.
Step 10: Finally, cut the loaf into slices. This recipe will make about 8 slices, depending on how thick you choose to slice your loaf. You will want to slice the loaf in 1-2 inch slices. Once you have sliced your loaf, simply let your bubble bars setup, completely hardening. It took our bubble bars approximately 48-72 hours to setup completely. However, it can take longer depending on the climate of your environment.
Your Rainbow Bubble Bars are now ready to use! To use your rainbow bubble bars crumble a bubble bar under your warm running bath water.
