I love how wickedly awesome these Maleficent bath bombs turned out. They’re just so–so evilly beautiful, I kind of don’t want to use them–but I will because I’m naughty! LOL!
Maleficent Bath Bombs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we love love love our evil fairy and her absurdly wicked ways. Seriously, if I had to pick a baddie to be my dark-side spirit animal, Maleficent would be her. Seriously fun. And when the kiddo suggested some villain-themed bath bombs for “when you have a bad day” (I love that kid), well, of course I thought immediately about making Maleficent bath bombs.
Wickedly easy to make these cupcake bath bombs have such an amazing character and cool twist to them, I almost don’t want to use them. But I will–because they’re easy and I can just make more. If you’re ready to make a cupcake bath bomb you’re going to love to hate (or is it hate to love?), well, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Cupcake Bath Bombs
- Allow your Maleficent bath bombs to dry fully before using them, they’ll be fizzier. That means no making them the night before you’re ready to gift them. I recommend letting them dry for at least 24 hours (more if you’re in a humid environment). That said, you can make these 3 months ahead of time and they’ll be just fine.
- Feel free to put as much fragrance oil and colorant into these Maleficent bath bombs as you’d like. I mean, they’re your bath fizzies. But whatever you do, don’t use food coloring–that will color your skin and the bathtub and they’ll all require scrubbing afterward–which is eeeevil. So, stick with soap colorant or mica powders, it’s easier to clean up.
- There is an ingredient which is optional, Polysorbate 80. The purpose of this emulsifier is to limit the oils and butters from pooling at the top of the water, as well as to reduce mica from adhering to the walls of the tub.
- This lush bath bomb (well, lush-inspired) is a bath bomb mixture made of essential oil, citric acid, polysorbate 80, and a little bit of water (with some other ingredients), all mixed together in a large bowl. That’s seriously all there is to it. So, if you’re having trouble getting one to hold it’s shape, its likely because it’s not wet enough. Add a little water and try again. But if you’re still having trouble, see this article on trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies to find out your options to remake them.
- Store your cupcake bath bombs in an airtight container until you’re ready to give them. The moisture in the air can make it less fizzy when the time comes to pop it in the bath. One thing I like to do is store my bath bombs in a pretty air-tight container like an apothecary jar. Not only is this great for keeping the bath bombs ready-to-use, but it’s a really cute packaging!
