The Solar System to EAT!

Liam had to make a 3 dimensional solar system for his class. He wanted to make rice krispy treats and a cake. So that's what he did. All I did was put the cake in and out of the oven (he burned himself once and is a bit apprehensive to do that.) And I melted the marshmallows while he was gluing the labels together (it was getting late) But he did everything else from reading the ingredients, measuring, mixing, frosting, coloring, and shaping, etc... all by himself. Can you tell I'm a proud mama?!?
This was a quick picture snapped before school, since I doubt I will ever see it again in tact! I should have gotten a better picture, the colors are off a bit, and you can't see the asteroid belt.
