Creative baker Heather Laird is fan of the Hubble Telescope, so much so that she felt inspired to craft a cake after it.
The baker from Knoxville, Tennessee tells Mashable she brainstormed the idea of a starry galaxy cake after falling in love with photographic images from the Hubble Telescope. Baird shares:
“Before I fell in love with baking, I was an aspiring artist,” Baird told us over email. “For years I worked in art galleries with artists of every stripe: painters, sculptors, glass blowers and textile artists. That love has translated into using art techniques on all kinds of confections.”
She even turned those confections into a book.
The avid baker also took took the opportunity to try out her edible painting skills along with a new recipe.
“I decided to see how well the painting technique would translate on cake. I had recently tested a recipe for black chocolate cake, and I felt it would be the perfect interior for a space-themed cake.”
