Polymer Clay Cake

Pinned Image

Doesn't this look so appetizing? Don't you just want to take a big bite of it? Go ahead and try, but you might be surprised to find that it is just a bit dry. You might crack a few teeth too, but that is a minor detail we can overlook.

What kind of cake cracks peoples teeth?

The kind made out of polymer clay, duh.

I used brown and pink clay to make my cake, baked it according to the instructions on the package, and then brushed the tops with glue and stuck on sprinkles. (The sprinkles are the only edible part, but the rest looks good enough to eat.)

Below is a recipe for peanut butter bars. They, unlike the cake, are actually edible. A cross between a granola bar and bread, they have a soft texture and peanutty taste.

Peanut Oatmeal Bars
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup peanuts
2 cups oatmeal
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
3 tsp cinnamon
1 cup pitted dates, soaked in boiling water

Blend 1 cup of oatmeal into a flour. Stir this in with the rest of the oatmeal and the baking soda and cinnamon. Blend together the dates, eggs, and peanut butter. Mix this with the rest of the ingredients. Spread evenly into a 8X8 baking dish that has been oiled. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Let it cool before cutting into bars.
