Celebrate Earth Day with an Earth-shaped cake filled with candy.
Earth Day is April 22nd and I wanted to share my enthusiasm for our planet by baking a cake in its honor. And not just any cake – a candy-filled cake that looks like our dear Earth.
Now, I won't say this was an easy cake to construct. But as I worked, I devised a method of leveling and frosting my spherical cake that will surprise you and made this project go very smoothly!
If you make an Earth cake, be sure to grab a globe to use as a guide. I think it would have been a struggle to create the continents on the cake if I had used a flat image of a map instead. I could follow the shape of the globe as I piped on the continents and did a pretty good job of fitting them in the right spots.
I brought my finished cake over to my neighbors, and was so happy to see such enthusiasm from the kids. Not only were they excited to get some cake, they loved that it looked like Earth– and were amazed to find chocolate rock candy inside!
Happy Earth Day!
