Happy birthday! Not your birthday? Well, you might be ready to celebrate after this scented chocolate birthday cake slime! It’s fluffy, smells like chocolate and covered with ‘sprinkles’.
It’s no surprise that we make a LOT of slime around here. But we also give a lot of slime as gifts! They are simple, not expensive and kids love them! Whether you make the slime to celebrate a birthday or give for a gift this scented chocolate birthday cake slime is always a hit!
This slime is super stretchy, very soft and fluffy and best of all… scented! That’s right, it smells like real chocolate! And while it smells like chocolate and looks like a cake batter, remember that it is not for eating.
A few things before we get started. There are a few special supplies that you will need:
- Glue - This recipe uses plain, white glue. We use Elmer’s glue. Other glues should work, but we have best results with Elmer’s. All of the ingredient measurements are made with this glue. It sounds crazy but different brands of glue sometimes have different measurements of the slime ingredients. If your kiddos go through a lot of slime (and who doesn’t?) the gallons are definitely the best way to go! There are two packs available online too. If you are planning on giving slime as a gift, bundling it with a gallon of glue makes for a fantastic, inexpensive gift.
- Saline Solution - We’ve tried several different contact solutions, but this one always works best for us. Bonus: It’s the cheapest. If you have a Walmart near you, I would get it there as it is much more expensive online (which is weird!).
- Foam Beads - These are our ‘sprinkles’. These beads can be used to make floam or a crunchy slime too. Fun, fun, fun.
- Chocolate fragrance oil - YUM. This smells just like chocolate! If you have a mini-slime master, you may want to pick up a variety pack of fragrance oils. This variety pack has the chocolate in it. This company has SO many awesome scents to chose from.
Here is what you will need to make our scented chocolate birthday cake slime:
- 1 airtight container (for storage)
- 1 cup white glue
- 1 cup shaving cream
- 1 cup foaming hand wash
- ¾ tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp contact solution
- Foam beads
- Chocolate scented fragrance
- Brown acrylic paint
- Small bowl
How to make our scented chocolate 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 brown paint until you get the perfect chocolate color.
- Add in 1 tsp of cornstarch and about 1 tsp of body lotion. These will help your slime stretch and be fluffy.
- 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 icing! While it smells and looks, make sure it is not tasted!
- 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. They will be hard to see, but when your slime ‘stretches’
- 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.
- Sprinkle foam beads on top.
- Store in an airtight container.
This scented chocolate birthday cake slime is one of my kids favorites to make and play with. I can’t wait for you to try making it at home!
