This cake was for a party where there are science experiments. Sorry for any miss spellings, the baby was crying
- RECIPE INGREDIENTS:
- half sheet cake (I use store bought)
- gummy worms, frogs, brains, teeth & others that strike your fancy
- mini m&ms
- chocolate rocks
- candy bones
- decorator's frosting
- gerbil wheel
- toy gerbil (or gummy rat if you can find it)
- dollar store science kit (microscope, beakers, magnifing glass)
- cool whip dyed green (to fill beakers if you want)
Before you make this cake decide what types of science you would like to display around the cake. This will give you some structure when you go to the candy section of the store and help you brainstorm.
With decorator's frosting write a field of science on the side of the cake and place the candies around the word. Do this one at a time so that you have room for all of the decorations.
Place the gerbil wheel (with toy gerbil), microscope and beakers on the top of the cake leaving room for the writing if you did not have the store write on it. I placed a magnifing glass on the cake with some candy rocks to look at. I used a fork to rest the magnifing glass on, if I were to do it again I would attach the glass to the broken off handle of a fork and stick it into the cake. Any left over candy can be put on top of the cake.
Science decorating ideas:
Biology - gummy frogs
Geology - chocolate rocks
Anatomy - gummy brains, gummy teeth,candy bones
Paleontology - candy bones
Botany - flowers from candy or frosting
Chemistry - m&m s with lines of frosting between them to make molecules
Oceanography - gummy sharks
Entimology - gummy spiders
I had planned to have a beaker filled with green cool whip spilling over to spell Happy Birthday but my friend, who's son was having the party, was a little leary of my pulling it off and just had the store write it on. I would love to see that done if anyone wants to try it!
