Midlothian Science Festival

I recently entered a competition as part of the Midlothian Science Festival. You had to design a cake with a theme of nature – and I won in the adult category! The prize was getting to go to Edinburgh college (or Jewel and Esk!) to decorate the cake, and a goodie bag from Ikea.

I had a great time decorating the cake (and seeing the other cakes get decorated) with a college tutor and two people who helped to run the whole festival, so here are some of the action shots.

A collection of animals from the other cakes:

And some action/ detail shots of my cake being made (made in just under three hours!):

And the final thing, with its original design… bonus points if you spot the major difference!
