Cake Sculpture, Miniature Style

Here’s an easy way to make a very yummy looking cake sculpture, thanks to all the great food-looking colors that Model Magic comes in. Their natural set makes a perfect chocolate and caramel, and the white looks like whipped cream every time. Need one more reason? Math is involved when circles are cut into quarters. Fractions have never looked so good.

MATERIALS
Model Magic, naturals
Model Magic, assorted colors
• Manila folder, or similar heavy paper
• Old yogurt container
• Utility scissors
