Then add a few sprays of water.

Keep whisking! This is very important

Keep adding the water and whisking until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Press some of the mixture into the ice cream scoop. If it is crumbly it’s too dry. Tip into the bowl and spray and whisk again.

When your scoop is half full, press the spider in, and then cover with more mixture and press down.

You should be able to slide the bath bomb out of the scoop. If it crumbles, it’s too dry. Tip into the bowl and spray and whisk again.
