Thank you to Barb at Honey Grove Botanicals for this hint:
I am still experimenting with the icing, but for now this is working.
I added 2 tablespoons of sodium lauryl sulfoacetate and 2 tablespoons
of baking soda to the icing recipe that you posted. I added 2-3
tablespoons of additional water to smooth it out. I use a hand mixer
on high to add more air. The icing still needs to be crumbled under
running water but it adds to the bubbles and is less resistant.
Here is a photo of Barb’s cupcakes.
The icing looks like icing and Barb thinks if she whips the icing for longer, she can even get it to be as fluffy as the original non-SLS frosting cakes.
Thanks Barb for the tip!

I made the cupcake bath bombs and they seemed to turn out perfect…until…I put them into the cellophane bags. When I came back a couple hours later, the frosting all appeared to almost expand and then crack/mushroom. any ideas??

It sounds like it might have been a little humid in your area and your cupcakes got a little damp. You just need to make sure you dry them completely before you put them in a bag! 🙂

I definitely will!! Hey, has the SLS come in yet?
The cupcakes are such a fun project. We have had them up at the retail store for a few weeks now and they get lots and lots of comments. Let me know what they think when you make them!
I can’t wait to try this out. I just know my staff will love them.
