MY 11YR. OLD SON AND I ENTERED A CAKE CONTEST.WE MADE THE WORLD, DIFFERENT AREAS OF THE WORLD, DESSERT,FARMLAND,OCEAN,ETC.WE HAD THE WORLD IN THE MIDDLE.THE ANIMALS WERE MADE AND SHAPE FROM FONDANT.EVERY PIECE OF STONE WAS HAND ROLLED FROM FONDANT. EVERY THING HAD TO BE MADE FROM THINGS YOU CAN EAT..WE WERE HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE GLOBE. TRIED USING A ROUND MOLD.. FOR SOME REASON THE CAKE WAS TO HEAVY.WE TRIED DIFFERENT TYPES OF CAKES. I WAS STARTING TO GET NERVOUS WE ONLY HAD A HOUR BEFORE THE CONTEST , THEN I DECIDED TO TRY TO USE RICE CRIPIES TREAT RECIPE.I MOLDED IT IN THE PAN....YES , IT WORKED, IT HELD ITS SHAOE, PERFECTLY...JUST BECAREFUL, MIXTURE IS HOT... WE LET IT COOL..USED BLUE FROSTING, MY SON GOT OUT A BOOK OF MAPS, HE TRACED THE COUNTRIES..WE USED FRUIT ROLL UPS, ROLLED THEM TOGETHER.HE TRACED THEM, PUT THEM ON THE GLOBE...BEAUTIFUL...NOW WE HAD TO GET IT THERE. IT WAS BIG, WE LIKE TO GO BIG..WE GOT IT TO THE SHOW..THERE WAS AN ALIEN CAKE,4 FT. LONG (MADE BY MY BROTHER ). WORLD SERIES TROPHY WON BY THE RED SOX, SEVERAL MORE, SMALLER..WE IMPRESSED THE JUDGES..THEY LOVED THE ANIMALS, GRAVEL OUR GLOBE...WE ENTITLED IT " WE ARE THE WORLD "... MY BROTHER CAME IN SECOND...THE YEAR BEFORE. WE DID THE PINEWOOD DERBY TRACK, WITH CARS COMING DOWN THE TRACKS...WE WON FIRST....WE ONLY ONE A BLUE RIBBON, IT IS MORE THAN THAT FOR US..MY SON AND I HAD FUN MAKING ALL THE PARTS NEEDED FOR THE CAKE..I HAD HIM LOOK UP THINGS IN BOOKS AND ON THE COMPUTER TO GET PICTURES FOR THE ANIMALS, ETC...SO IT WAS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE AS WELL. I WILL TRY TO GET SOME PHOTOS TO SHOW YOU GUYS..IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE BIG..HAVE AN IDEA...DRAW IT OUT AND HAVE FUN...WE LOVE TO BAKE. WORKING ON IDEA FOR NEXT YEAR.

This is my first day on here. a friend told me about it. I wish my mom took the time to bake with me. I only make main meals, casseroles. Your a smart lady, getting him to learn as he is having fun..I'am a teacher, I know how hard it is to get kids to learn..Nice idea," WE ARE THE WORLD". Keep up the good work...Sitting at my desk, my free time..looking for a recipe for dinner.
