Here’s what you will need to make scented birthday cake slime with a chocolate scent
- 1 airtight container
- 1 cup white glue
- 1 cup shaving cream
- 1 cup foaming hand wash
- ¾ tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp contact lens solution
- Foam beads
- Chocolate scented fragrance
- Brown acrylic paint
- Small bowl
How to make birthday cake slime
- In a bowl, measure out 1 cup white glue.
- Add 1 cup shaving cream.
- Shaving cream is a little funky to measure so a little extra won’t hurt it! 🙂
- Mix together and add 1 cup of foaming hand wash.
- Mix well. Your slime should be super foamy.
- Add in 1 tsp of cornstarch and about 1 tsp of body lotion.
- These will help your slime stretch and be fluffy.
- Add in brown paint until you get the perfect chocolate color.
- Pour in a few multi-colored foam beads.
- You don’t want a ton as these are just the ‘sprinkles’ and don’t want it to turn into a crunchy slime or foam but add to your heart’s desire.
- Drop a few drops of chocolate fragrance oil in.
- Your slime will smell just like a delicious cake – and it looks like a fluffy blob of funfetti icing! While it smells and looks, make sure it is not tasted!
- Next add in ¾ – 1 tsp of baking soda.
- (Start with ¾ of a tsp and add more during kneading if you need to. Baking soda is what will thicken your slime up.)
- Finally, add in contact saline solution.
- Start with 1 tbsp. If you need to add a bit more, you can. Saline solution makes the slime less sticky. You will know you have enough when the slime pulls away from the side of the bowl.
- Knead the slime.
- Store in an airtight container.
Now if you’re having a poop emoji birthday party this would be a great activity to do too, or just send it home as a party favor!
