My version of an earth cake

It was birthday celebration time once again.

This time, we tried to mimic the earth cake that Rhiannon  wrote about earlier this year  & has been getting a lot of attention on the internet.

I made the northern hemisphere and wasn't too concerned about correct geographical locations as we were just curious to cut into the cake and see how it turned out.

Looks like a normal enough cake

But is it?

Decorated- not geographically correct
But we didn't forget the Hawaiian Islands- (we made them larger than life)




It worked! And tastes good too! I used Rhiannon's recipes.  The center is the Chocolate Mudcake in cupcake form.
The middle & outer layers Almond Buttercake with vanilla substituted for the almond extract and flour replaced the almond meal. Copious amounts of food coloring & behold planet earth
