i have a cake to make for a friend of mine whose boy loves science experiences;
i ve looked all over the net,and i ve found beautiful cakes but none of them really inspires me,
i feel a little bit lost,because i don t know at all what to do;
usually i m creative and have many ideas,but in this case:????
could you please share your experience,ideas or tips to help me find some inspiration?
thanks a lot for any help you could bring to me.
Hi when i see mad science I think of green filled bottles and bubbles.
You could make a normal rectangular cake, try making out of fondant viles or glass looking bottles. Color them to look like liquid then place like white or light colored cotton candy to look like smoke coming out of them!
For the rest of the scenery you can place rulers, notepads with crazy calculations, atoms or lab gloves.
Hope this helps get the creativity flowing
I think of green, bubbling over beakers as well!
Maybe top with a beaker of green 'sciency goo', (I skipped a lot of my science classes, can you tell?), and green gelatin bubbles overflowing from it and down the side of the cake.
AOk I think you should make the cake look like a mini lab. With maybe some baking elements, but maybe not. You can set up a real science experiment. Two beakers, with some grape juice inside.. then some kindof edible container filled with lemon juice and one filled with baking soda. (Can you pop gelatin bubbles? Maybe that would work with the lemon juice). When you add the lemon juice to one grape juice it will turn red, and when you add the baking soda to the other grape juice it will turn green! Anyways, its an idea I guess.
Take a look at my cake in the link posted above. If there is anything I can help you with, please Pm me.

Gigi27,i think a lab with bottles,bubbles and all the materials is a great idea!!and cotton candy,yeah!!
