- Hey, I'm Zoe Kelly. This is Bill, Neil, and Beyonce and welcome to The Kitchen Lab. This is a place where I'll be testing out some cool experiments, hacks, and fun things that we've all seen online and letting you know if they're worth a try at home. So grab a lab coat and let's get to testing. So today we're going to experiment by making edible glitter slime and we're gonna see if it's just as cool as it looks online. Let's get started! All right guys, you get to stay there today and watch everything happen, so behave. All right, let's grab all the supplies that we need. Today I'm gonna need a glass pie plate, some water, neutral oil, sanding sugar, edible glitter, tapioca starch, a whisk, a spatula, a small glass bowl and a large plate. So, first thing's first, I have some tapioca starch. Gonna add this to a bowl and I'm gonna add my water. So now we're just gonna give this a whisk until it's well combined. And it looks watery right now and you're probably like Zoe, that doesn't look anything like slime. Hang on, once I put this on the heat, it's gonna start getting really sticky and jelly and you're gonna see it's gonna look like slime so, just hang on. All right, that's done. And now over my pot of water, I'm gonna add my glass plate and it's gonna sit right on top, kinda like a double boiler. And the reason why you wanna use a pie plate is 'cause it gives you a lot of surface area to work with, versus a bowl where it's kinda shallow and you're just using a little bit. Perfect, it's boiling now, so I'm gonna add my mixture to it. And now that it's boiling I'm gonna reduce it down to about medium heat. So what's happening here is the tapioca starch is gonna start to cook and as it cooks it's gonna start to gel together. This is a really cool experiment that you can try at home with your friends, your family, or any younger siblings, they would love this. It's happening. Starting to see it gel together. If you've ever had boba tea this is the same material that's made to use boba. It's coming together. All right. So this is ready to go. I'm gonna kill the eat and grab my plate. I'm gonna put a little oil on the plate just so it doesn't stick, and then very carefully go ahead and transfer our tapioca starch to the plate. What? This really looks like slime. Ugh. So, delicious. But it will be after we add our edible glitter. So we're just going to spread it so it cools down a little bit before we touch it. It's really sticky, guys. All right, so it's kinda cool to the touch. Look at that. This is slime 101 right here. I'm gonna go ahead and add some sanding sugar. It's gonna give it a beautiful, blue color and then I'm gonna add my edible black glitter. I'm going for like a little bit of a galaxy slime here. And now you just start rolling, get your hands dirty, start stretching. Oh, this texture is so gross but like, very satisfying at the same time. You know, I don't know if I like, like this texture or if I'm very grossed out by it but for some reason I can't stop playing with it. Oh my gosh. What! You guys, we have slime. Oh my God. This reminds of that movie Glubber, it's just it has a life of its own. And the last part of this experiment, I did say it was edible, so, as gross as it feels let's see if I can eat it. It feels as gross in my hands as it does in my mouth but it's edible, so I definitely think that you guys should give this thing a try. It's not only super fun, it feels kinda funky but somehow I really love it. All right guys, here it is, edible glitter slime. I really can't stop playing with it. If you guys make this at home, make sure you tag me so I can see it and if you have any experiments that you want us to try here at The Kitchen Lab, make sure you tag Tastemade and we'll check it out. I'll see you next time.
