Plant Cell Cake

This is a cake my daughter and I did together. It is her science project for school tomorrow (this is the labeled version of the cake). I frosted it and then helped her assemble the parts. She was only allowed to use frosting for two parts of the cake.

What an interesting and unique idea. She's sure to get an A+!

Thanks. I already told her if she doesn't get an A+, I'll be seriously suprised. She's very pleased with how it came out.

Great job!! The memories this brings back for me....my daughter and I did a plant cell cake a few years ago...yours is MUCH better, but we had a great time making it!

My daughter had a similar project last year. We made a big cookie and added various candies for the parts. She got an A+ and was the only one who made her cell out of food. Good luck it looks great.

Very Cool!!!! Great idea!!!

Thanks. She is apparently the only one doing an edible 3D food project. She told me what she needed to do and the 3D image is what stuck in my head. She couldn't visualize it till I got the cake sliced and stacked. I'm almost as anxious as she is to see how her teacher likes it! LOL.

What do you mean she was only allowed to use frosting for 2 parts of the cake? which 2 parts??-lol , I have an English speak, I have to do a demo/instructional speech...I'm taking a tiered cake and demo'ing how to cut wedding slices..lol

They don't want the kids doing all the parts with different colored frosting. So the only parts of the cake that were frosting were the cytoplasm and the vacule base (which we didn't count b/c it was also jell) and we used yellow frosting for the chromosomes in the nucleus. She used fruit by the foot/fruit gushers/string licorice/cake sprinkles and a few other items for the other parts of the cake.

And why was this done out of a cake? Just to be unique? Don't get me wrong I think it's really really cool and I hope she does get an A+!

It's part of their science assignment. They had a choice of making an edible cell or a model or write a report. They can only get a B if they write the report. Since I do cakes for fun, she decided she wanted it made from cake instead of on a cheese cake (which is what the rest of her class is doing-cheese cakes and jello). It really just "makes" them learn the parts of the cell by creating them. ANd they get to eat it too :smile:

My daughter just did this same project, we used clay and embedded it in clear soap - great job! We mom's get creative to help our kids! Great job! Did the kids get to eat the cake??

SheilaF Says... 9 years ago

yes, they ate it. And loved it. they had never had MMF, so they were really excited with how good it was. They fought over the cake :)
