Behold the Jupiter Structural Layer Cake from Cakecrumbs! The spherical cake was constructed using two hemispheres complete with delicious representations of rock, ice and liquid metallic hydrogen that are thought to inhabit the planet’s core.
In cake speak, this translates to a core made of mudcake, surrounded by almond butter cake, surrounded by a tinted vanilla Madeira sponge. There’s a crumb coat of vanilla buttercream underneath the fondant.
Mmm, The Great Red Spot never tasted so goo.

They made a video to promote it. Check it out in all its Star Trekesque glory after the jump and “get ready to beam up that food from a hot pan to a hungry tummy.”

How cheese gets from the cow to the plate is a journey that many may be interested in. Not surprisingly, to get there involves a lot of things that start with the letter ‘c.’ That would include: cheese wax, cheese shaping mold, cheese cultures, cheesecloth, cheese salt, and a cheese brush.
And that doesn’t even take into account all the things that don’t start with ‘cheese!’ For example, where would someone get the other necessary ingredients and tools? Well, if after all that one still needs: rennet, calcium chloride, coloring, thermometer and a wax melting pot, they most certainly did not pick up the Complete Artisan Cheese Making Kit from Grow and Make.
Everything listed above is included in the DIY cheese-making kit. That is, everything but the cow and the milk.

Butter, jam and sandwich meats in general should be very afraid. Here comes the Domo Toaster! But perhaps more frightening is wondering what took a bite out of the slice of Domo toast up there. Somehow, I suspect a certain kitten is involved…
