Cake  – 08.26.09

Tessa, Ben’s little sister, had a science project to create an animal cell.  There was also extra credit available for anyone that came up with an idea the teacher had never seen before. So Tessa came to me and asked if we could build it out of cake. Why sure we could, so off to the drawing table I went.

We baked a vanilla soccer ball cake, cut out a section of the ball to display the cell’s inside components and covered it with buttercream and fondant. I came back with another piece of pink fondant and draped on top of the white to create a thin wall.  We separated the rest of the white fondant and mixed up various colors.  Tessa chose which parts were to be which color and began forming the pieces and attaching to the cake.  She came back with edible marker and added the final touches to the inside.  We made indentions in the outside of the cake to replicate a cell and added little breathing holes with the end of a paintbrush.  After 3 hours, it was complete and ready to make it’s grand entrance in science class.  And to top it all, she got 110 on the project! ‘Twas fun, Tessa.  I’m sure there will be many more collaborated artistic cake pieces made in the future. Love you, sis.
