I have to admit, I haven't "celebrated" earth day since grade school when we would plant a tree in the playground. But after seeing this earth cake over at Under the Table Dreaming I had to make it with the kiddo. Well it was early and mommy's brain hadn't quite got in groove yet, so after having to take the batter back out of the bowl because I forgot the food coloring, hello! that's the point of the project! I forgot to grease the bowl after wiping it clean so that the uncolored batter didn't take away from the dome. I guess I was so excited to try it I wasn't thinking clearly.
Anyway, I used an oversized baking "mug" I had gotten my mom for Christmas.
