An Edible Animal Cell Model


My friend's son had an assignment for school where he was required to make a 3d animal cell model.  It had to have all of the cell parts, such as the Nucleus, Nuclear Membrane, Mitochondrion, Golgi Bodies, etc.  He was told that he could make the model out of anything as long as it wasn't something that could get smelly in a couple of days.  Since one of his favorite shows is "Cake Boss", he decided he wanted to make it out of Rice cereal and fondant.  He came over tonight so that I could teach him how to work with fondant.  It was a lot of fun!  After showing him what to do, it was fun watching him create his animal cell.  I think it turned out great!  His work was phenomenal.  What do you think?
