Barber was required to create his own insect - including a 3-D image of it. He decided that he wanted to make a cake so the whole class could enjoy his project as well. Their guidelines were it had to have a head, thorax and abdomen. Needed to have insect eyes, antennae and 6 legs from the thorax. He went with his favorite team colors - red and blue for the NY Giants. Mommy was allowed to help as needed but I took more of the facilitator role. This is his project and he was going to do it.
|Pouring in the ingredients to mix - this cake wasn't from scratch. I'll teach him that another day.|
|Three segments of his insect - chocolate is his favorite!|
|I outlined the areas according to his sketch...then allowed him to begin icing|
|Blue is done. Now he is preparing the red icing.|

He called it The Llebpamc Split. Can you figure out how he came up with that name?
