The New Frontier

Welcome to the future. The Earth has been rendered uninhabitable due to the devastating effects of climate change and humans are now looking for habitable locations in outer space. What do you do?

  • Option 1: Throw a Space-themed party for no particular reason and make an edible version of your non-future life on Jupiter (it’s mostly hydrogen and helium – not a great place to build a house).
  • Option 2: Go back in time to the year 2015 and read my article on how climate change will have a devastating impact on human health if we don’t do something soon.
  • Option 3: Re-watch Interstellar and imagine what life would be like as Matthew McConaughey.

I chose Option 1 and found this recipe to help me. The cakes were relatively easy to make; the hardest part was finding bowls the right size and waiting patiently for the different layers to bake before re-baking them within another layer. Oh the patience! Once both hemispheres are cooked, it’s very easy to attach them with buttercream frosting, frost the entire planet and drape white fondant over the top. I used an edible orange food mist spray to create the outer appearance of the planet, although in hindsight some edible ink would have gone a long way.
