 So for our project in school we are supposed to make a model of the three layers of skin, example..

http://www.glomedspa.com/epidermis-cake-skin.html

 

I thought this looked really cool.. But I was wondering if anyone had any other ideas to add.. to make a little more unique and creative?.

 I was thinking of stacking cakes, like three layers, make going diagonal but I don't know how?

 Or if anyone possibly knows how to make a head??.

 Thanks for any input/ advice you have!

That is awesome!

You could also do fondant and 'paint' it - like I did my 'slice of earth cake'. The hair is awesome, though. I would definitely keep that part.

You could do something like this:

Yes, you'd have to stack. If you wanted to do diagonal, just follow a tutorial on how to do one of those cakes. I have never done one, but it's on my list. I don't think it would be that tough. Just make sure you use good support.

What about a jello poke-cake?  The follicles remind me of the "pokes" in a poke cake.  You'd still want to pipe the side details on, though, probably after slicing.  I'm an anatomy nerd (I won't gross you guys out by saying where I spent my undergrad years!) so I love your idea! thumbs_up.gif
