This is the third cake in my Covid-19 memories cake series. My oldest son is very concerned about the damage that is being done to our planet through disposing of garbage, including plastic, in the oceans, and global warming.
The impact of global warming has become very apparent this year with the terrible fires in Australian in the first quarter of the year and the current fires in the USA. Looking at the pictures of the devastation these fires are causing is frightening for me.
This cake is a fish that has died by swallowing part of a plastic medical glove. A disposable medical mask is caught in its tail.
I was quite pleased at how this fish shaped cake came out, the colours worked rather well and I like the shiny scales look that I created using edible silver glimmer dust.
Thank you to my great blogging friend, John Rieber, for inspiring these Covid-19 cakes. You can find John’s entertaining and interesting blog here: https://johnrieber.com/
Are you concerned about the plastic pollution? If you are, are you taking any steps to try and combat it?
We are growing some of our own vegetables and fruit this year so we don’t have to buy it. We are also making all our own bread now and I try to avoid heavily package ready-made meals, preferring to cook from scratch.
