Hemispherical Earth cake with crust, mantle and core

  1. But does it taste good?   I’ve had some bad experiences with these sculptural cakes — they look much better than they taste.   Too much fondant can make you wish they used plaster instead of sugar.

      Ain’t that the truth.  I’d just as soon eat play-doe than that fondant putty crap. Still, it’s a nice piece of work…I wouldn’t eat it…but it looks cool.

         It’s marshmallow fondant, according to the post. So it’s basically melted, coloured and reset marshmallows. Sounds pretty good to me.

    FAIL!  Doesn’t conform to the hydroplate theory.  Should be filled with a layer of liquid goodness.

       Doesn’t even have a magnetic field

      Hydroplate theory is a creationist thing which purports that there were  enormous pockets of water above the mantle. Parts of the planet-encasing supercontinent above the water pockets collapsed, forming the oceans and causing the biblical flood. Please don’t make a cake like that.

      You can have some liquid in there, though, because the outer crust is liquidy (custard, most likely), and you could do several layers of different-colored frosting to emulate the upper mantle (parts of which are solid but ductilely deforming, like dense frosting but certainly not like liquid) and the crust.

      And what, are they going to need to put a jaw breaker in the middle too?  It’s a hemispherically layered cake for goodness sakes, not a pudding pie! 

      On a unrelated side note, should we also be worried about the proliferation of yellow cake?

    Do we know enough about the inside of Mars to do a proper Bar?

    Global Warming?  More like Global Nomming!

    Cake tectonics?  Earthcakes?  The San Andreas Fondant?

    Please sir, I want some moho.

    That takes the cake.

  9. That looks pretty good. A lot of those cakes on TV cake shows look like they are all made of fondant and PVC pipes. I would eat this Earth.
