Do It

  • a large mixing bowl
  • a kitchen mixer, hand or electric
  • a tablespoon of dishwashing liquid
  • a cup of water
  • a plate
  1. Pour about a cup of water into the bowl. Add the tablespoon of dish soap.
  2. Use the mixer to whip up some suds. Take your time... you might want to mix for as much as ten minutes.
  3. When the suds seem good and stiff, start piling them up onto a plate. You can scoop them with a large spoon, or just with your hands.
  4. Keep piling up the foam, until you make the tallest pile you can.
