This is a cake, made to look like the planet Jupiter, both on the surface and inside.





I detailed the atmosphere of Jupiter by covering the cake with ivory marshmallow fondant, then dry brushing a combination of ivory, brown and maroon edible ink. The top ended up being a bit more saturated as I was largely experimenting with colours at that point and was throwing in a bit of yellow. I ended up sticking mostly with ivory and adding extra detail with the brown. Once all the base colours were down I started removing colour to create the storms or other distinguishing features and topping it off with highlights. The whole process took about 8 hours with teeny tiny brushes.

And for the inside:

Our knowledge is mostly theoretical of course, but the gas giants are thought to have a core comprised mostly of rock and ice. This is surrounded by a layer liquid metallic hydrogen, and the outer layer is composed of molecular hydrogen. *cake is totally not to scale

In cake speak, this translates to a core made of mudcake, surrounded by almond butter cake, surrounded by a tinted vanilla Madeira sponge. There’s a crumb coat of vanilla buttercream underneath the fondant.

A star is born -- literally -- and it's stunning

Meet Herbig-Haro object HH 46/47, a very energetic youngster of a star 1,400 light-years away.

Jupiter looks beautiful tonight. It's the brightest star in the east. Stare at it and see that it doesn't look like the other stars, it seems like not one point of light but a cluster of lights. It's because some of its moons are partially visible too.
