Every Friday my chemistry class has something we like to call "Chocolate Friday", where we take it in turns to bring in either cake or chocolate for the class. Usually, people just buy food, but I decided to do something different, so I made a periodic table cake Grin
A photo in the lab:


A photo at home with less glare:


It's nothing special, just a sponge cake with a layer of buttercream icing, a layer of royal icing and then chocolate icing for decoration, but I'm quite proud of how it turned out Smiley
Thanks for looking,
Sinead

This is awesome!  I am a science teacher too and this would be great when teaching the periodic table Smiley

My kids are currently doing an assignment to build a 3D cell, and I hope I have dropped enough hints that at least a couple of girls make it with cake, chocolate, icing or jelly.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

This is awesome!  I'm a sucker for anything with the periodic table on it, but this... takes the cake!    Roll Eyes  

That must have taken ages to pipe.  Good work!

Thank you everybody Cheesy
@alwaysinmyroom People did actually get quite competitive over which element they wanted!
@cheekibot I did that project last year! I made mine with jelly and a various assortment of sweets, chocolate, edible glitter and sprinkles. I'm sure your kids will come up with some great (and hopefully edible) cells Grin
