Wordless Wednesday…The Science of Cake

Or would it be “Cakes for Science”??cellcake

sydcake1Either way, this is a cake I helped my cousin’s daughter make a few weeks ago for her school science class.  I showed her how to ice it, we played with fondant, I taught her to use piping bags…and I relearned all those crazy mitochondria, cell wall, Golgi Apparatus things!

I think turning a cake into a science project is an excellent way to learn…it gets you in there, hands on, making each of the parts yourself, which in itself is a technique in learning and memorization.  And it’s fun for everyone involved. Give it a go – there are lots of things you could make!

In the meantime, I am begging for support for the recipe I entered in the Hass Avocado Contest.  I’ve moved well up the ranks, thanks to all of you guys!  But I still have a ways to go…so if you wouldn’t mind voting for my Bourbon Bacon, Shrimp & Avocado Pockets, I would really appreciate it!  There is no registration required, just click VOTE!  You can vote once a day, so I hope you will!  I will be featuring the recipe here on my site on Monday, and begging for votes again then…be prepared! :)    VOTE HERE! And THANKS!
Disclaimer: Yes, I full on know that I ran my mouth on Wordless Wednesday. It happens.
