Eating Egypt


When I assigned a map cake as homework, I was expecting my student to frost the cake and perhaps pipe lines of blue frosting to represent the Nile River. I guess I forgot that different countries have different tastes.  

Daniel (and his mom, Magda) baked a chocolate cake, using Chocolisto (a powdered chocolate drink mix) for flavoring. The land was represented by thin slices of seedy uchuvas (not a bad idea for a land with sand). Purple Nerd candies represented the Nile River as well as the Red Sea.
