This Astronomically Correct Jupiter Cake Is a Gas

Illustration for article titled This Astronomically Correct Jupiter Cake Is a Gas

Not only is this Jupiter cake just a marvelous sight, it's an astronomically correct model of Jupiter.


Hungry? Good. But first, let yourself remember a little elementary science. Created by Cake Crumbs—the same smart baker behind this awesome, accurate Earth cake—the edible Jupiter shows the planet's core of rock and ice, surrounded by a layer of liquid metallic hydrogen, ensconced in a outer layer of molecular hydrogen.

While the layers aren't to scale, the cake as a whole is undoubtedly impressive, with intricate details painted on the outer fondant layer. We just hope it tastes as good as it looks. [CakeCrumbs via JWZ via BoingBoing]



I heard Jupiter's core might he a gazillion carat diamond. WHERE'S MY DIAMOND?!?!?
