It’s no secret that we love making Bubble Bar Wands using Wonder Bar here at Bath Fizz and Foam!
This project is super simple, but the results are adorable! Your customers, friends and family are sure to love these bubble wands.
For this project, Robyn and I used Wonder Bar! Wonder Bar is a bubble bar recipe that can be pressed like a bath bomb, scooped into bubble scoops, rolled into fun rolls and piped into bubble frosting! It is the most dynamic bubble bar recipe on the market. Check it out here!
You can use Wonder Bar or you can use your favorite pipeable bubble frosting. This tutorial is all about the design.
So, what’s a bubble wand? In case you’re new to all of this, a bubble wand is a bubble bar attached to a stick (cake pop stick, or pop sickle stick) that you hold under running water to create a bath full of bubbles! My kids LOVE bubble wands! They love holding them under running water as bubbles magically appear!
Here’s how to make them!
Get the Wonder Bar recipe here. You can use a full batch or you can dip out of a masterbatch and only make a few!
Other ingredients and supplies needed:
- Pop sickle sticks (or cake pop sticks)
- Cosmetic approved, eco Glitter
When it comes to bubble wands, it is ALL about consistency. As mentioned, Wonder Bar allows you to create a pipeable bubble frosting. These directions are outlined in the PDF when you purchase.
Step 1: Mix Wonder Bar until you get a pipeable consistency! It should look like frosting. Add your color. We used a tiny amount of Red 27 to get a light pink.
TIP: Try a test piping! If your piping is airy and cracking, then add more alcohol!
Step 2: Prepare piping bag with your tip. We used an Ateco 847 tip.
Step 3: Scoop your mixture into your piping bag.
Step 4: Pipe a blob of Wonder Bar as shown.
Step 5: Pipe a heart shape around the center blob. If you search on Pinterest for piping heart shaped meringues, you’ll find some good tutorials on piping. Many of our bubble wand designs are inspired by meringues.
Step 6: Place a stick on top of this first layer. Having a bottom layer and a top layer creates a more stable bubble wand where the stick won’t fall out!
Step 7: Pipe another heart swirl on top to complete your bubble wand.
Step 8: We topped our bubble wands with handmade cosmetic sprinkles and cosmetic glitter!
Step 9: Allow your bubble wands to dry for 1-3 days (depends on your humidity).
Tip: Dry your bubble wands in a room with a dehumidifier.
Once dry you can package your bubble wands! I like to package in a bag, tied with a ribbon!
To use a bubble wand, simply direct your customer to hold it under hot running water. As the water dissolves the bubble wand, it create a bath full of bubbles!
Happy Bubble Making!
