This model of Earth is actually a cake inside a cake inside a cake


Chocolate buttercream. Marshmallow fondant. Orange Madeira sponge. These are some of the things that went into this mouth-watering attempt at replicating one hemisphere of our big, blue planet. Livejournal-er cakecrumbs recently posted about her attempts at creating a structurally correct cake rendition of the Earth.

Cakecrumbs' sister had approached her about creating a model of our planet and was initially shot down. However, craftman's pride (or raw stubbornness) eventually won out, and cakecrumbs baked cakes inside cakes inside cakes. As tough as fitting cakes inside cakes sounds, it took six whole hours to create the continents.
