My kids beg to make slime almost every day. While we don't make it daily, we do make it often. They love to try and experiment with new slime recipes and this Fluffy Chocolate Birthday Slime is one of their favorites. It smells like chocolate birthday cake and while it is not edible, it is fun to play with. Be sure to also check out this easy slime recipe.
This is NOT edible slime. Please supervise your kids when making slime and have them wash their hands when they are done playing.
Top tip: I always recommend playing with slime on a table and away from fabric and carpets. You’ll thank me later!

How to make cake slime
To make birthday cake confetti slime, measure out 1 cup of white glue and pour it into a bowl.
Next, add 1 cup shaving cream to the bowl. Shaving cream can be tough to measure, so don't be concerned if you add a little extra.
Mix the glue and shaving cream together in the bowl and add 1 cup of foaming hand wash.
Pour the foaming hand wash into the bowl and mix all the ingredients well. The slime should be very foamy from the soap.
Add in some brown paint until you get that perfect chocolate color.
Next, add in 1 teaspoon of cornstarch and about 1 teaspoon of body lotion. These ingredients will help your slime to be stretchy and fluffy.
Pour in a small amount of the multi-colored foam beads. You don’t need a lot, as these are just meant to be the sprinkles.
Drop in a few drops of chocolate fragrance oil. This is what will make your slime smell just like a delicious chocolate cake. While the slime smells great, make sure it is not tasted!
Next, add in ¾ - 1 teaspoon of baking soda to thicken up the slime. Start with ¾ of a teaspoon and add more during kneading if needed.
Finally, add the contact saline solution the slime. Start with 1 tablespoon, and if you need to add a little more, you can. Saline solution helps the slime to be less sticky. You will know you have added enough when the slime pulls away from the side of the bowl.
Knead the homemade slime. This step always takes longer than people think it will. Keep kneading and stretching until the easy fluffy slime is no longer sticky.
This stretchy slime provides a great sensory activity for kids. The foam beads add a pop of rainbow color.
