So it was my friend's birthday and i decided to make an earth cake
I basically completely copied the idea from here...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232304.0
Graverobbergirl did something kinda complicated with cake tins which i didn't quite understand, but i fidugred it was just like a marble cake so i used that recipe and a LOT of red and orange food dye
Here it was before cooking:
of course, i got the colours the wrong way around
I did a circle of brown, then red in the middle, then orange, then more brown!
this is a bit wibbly but it shows the colours better.
all covered up!
Then all iced up, i used train candle holders and a drew a red cross and stuck a flag in with her name on.
First i put on all the blue icing then i filled in the gaps with grean, and outlines it.
The icing was lemon flavour butter icing.
my other friend's is on the left - hers was DELICIOUS!!
I wanted it to come out as a small dome in the centre, circled with orange, and then brown all the way round
however i to get the bright red i had to add LOADS of food dye and even though i did add some flour it was still really runny, then the brown had lots of cocoa so was really heavy and it sunk.
It didn't come out how i wanted but it was still more exciting than a normal cake and looked pretty cool!
I really enjoyed making it it was so much fun!
And cutting it was really exciting. She was really happy.
Taste-wise it was really quite sweet, but the cake was quite moist. And it rose really well!
Most fun cake. ever.
