Rhi had a classmate over last night to work on their current Geography project - making a volcano out of cake..........
Their Geography teacher gave the class an assignment to come up with a representation of something thay have recently worked on, using cooking ingredients :)
Rhi and her partner choose to make a volcano, they used chocolate cake, brown fondant icing and buttercream icing to show a diagram of the inside of an active volcano (cone shaped mountain, lava pool and tubes, lava cooling as it hits the outside surface) Other than preparing their materials beforehand, they required no help from me, so I had to sit in the living room listening to them giggling and going into gales of helpless laughter, and dying of curiosity to see what was going on!!
It turned out looking pretty good, their only real problem was that it is hard to get a really good red using food colouring, so their lava is a lovely shade of rosy pink :)
The next step is to get it to school tomorrow without dropping it!
