Earth Day is April 22nd  

Celebrate by making your own “Planet Earth”

 

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter and flour a medium Pyrex glass bowl.
  2. Make cake batter according to mix directions. Pour half of batter in Pyrex bowl.  Tap down on solid service to get rid of bubbles in batter.  Bake approximately 35 minutes; then check every 10 minutes to ensure cake is done.  Remove from oven and cool.
  3. Run a butter knife around edge of cake and bowl. Slice bottom of cake so it will set flat on serving platter. Invert bowl onto a serving platter and tap slightly until bowl releases cake.
  4. Repeat process a second time. Cool cake in bowl.  Make buttercream frosting while cake is cooling. Place a dollop of frosting on top of cake.  Invert second cooled cake and place on top of frosting.  Frost around the ball of cake covering cake completely.
  5. To decorate cake frost land with one color (natural green) and water (natural blue). Use a globe as reference when decorating cake.
