Rhiannon is a self-taught cook located in Melbourne, Australia who shares her culinary adventures with a blog entitled Cakecrumbs. This beautiful Earth Structural Layer Cake is her most recent creation and was made for her sister:
“A little while ago, my sister approached me with an idea. She’s doing an education degree, and her and her friends had to give a series of lessons on the geological sciences to a class of primary school kids. One of their lessons involved teaching the kids about the structure of the Earth. One of her friends came up with the idea of presenting a model of the Earth made out of cake. So my sister asked me if I could make a spherical cake with all the layers of the Earth inside it.
I told her I couldn’t do it. “How do you get a sphere inside a sphere inside a sphere?” I recall saying. “Oh yeah,” she replied, realising what it would involve.
I spent the rest of the afternoon thinking about it. I don’t admit defeat. Ever. But especially not with cake. Nothing is impossible is pretty much my baking motto, so to say this cake was impossible left me feeling weird. There had to be a way. A way that didn’t involve carving or crumbing the cake. I kept mulling it over until I had a breakthrough.”
Nothing is impossible where cake is concerned! Visit Cakecrumbs find out how Rhiannon created this tasty model of our home planet.

Japanese Architecture firm Hironaka Ogawa were the masterminds behind this amazing home expansion in Kagawa, Japan. With the new found need for space, came the necessary demolition of old, sacred trees that had so much sentimental meaning for the homeowners. Instead of just parting ways, it was decided that the two trees would be repurposed into something greater for the family (via).

In this letter to the manager of an automobile dealership, @Wits host John Moe (@johnmoe) explains how a magical used car salesman “charmed” him into purchasing something much too fast. It WAS Saturday night, but it might not have been alright.

The National: Live from the Artists Den - First Look (by ArtistsDen)
The soaring, majestic Drill Hall in New York’s historic Park Avenue Armory provided an awe-inspiring setting for the National’s taping for Live from the Artists Den. The massive space, designed to resemble a classic European train station, hosted 900 invited guests, who witnessed a twenty-song set featuring the debut of numerous songs from the Brooklyn-based band’s forthcoming album, Trouble Will Find Me, along with blistering versions of such favorites as “Fake Empire,” “Bloodbuzz Ohio,” and “Terrible Love.”
This special performance, for which the National was augmented by horns and a string section, will air this summer on public television as part of the sixth season of the acclaimed concert series.
