Making a science project could be boring and difficult for some people. But for many others, science project could really be amusing and entertaining. The best way to have plenty of fun while also creating a functional science project is by making it edible. Today we are going to make an edible animal cell model project together. With easy steps, you don’t need to know how to cook. You only need to follow these simple instructions and do exactly what the article requires you. Hopefully this science project could be useful for you or for your children’s school project.
Ingredients you will need
The animal cell model project that we will make today will be edible and made from a delicious cake and sweets. There are several ingredients that you need to have. Don’t worry, they won’t be difficult to acquire. The first one, of course you’ll need a cake mix. To ornament it, we will use a vanilla icing with variety of colors. For information and label detail, we will use toothpicks and also little paper such as mailing label or post-it. Also buy variety of sugar to represent various organelles within a cell.
Here are several steps that you can have in making the animal cell model project from cake from scratch. The first step is to bake the cake in the oven until it’s cooked. Next, mix a yellow coloring in one bowl of icing, and then mix a green color in another bowl. The yellow color will represent the whole body of the cell or cytoplasm. And put the green icing on the siding of the cake to make the cell wall or membrane. Cut a little cake muffin top and put in on top with a pink icing to resembles nucleus.
Sugars and confections that we use
There are several confections that we will use as organelles. The ribosomes could be represented by little sprinkle of yellow candy such as candy disc. The sour warheads could be painted using the sour warheads candy or other round and colorful candy. You can purchase two different colors of tube candies such as gummy beans. The pink one could represent endoplasmic and the blue should be able to pose as mitochondria. Gummy worms or flexible licorice could be used as Golgi apparatus to create an interesting texture in the cake. This edible animal cell model project is guaranteed of a grade.
