Weekly Challenge at Inspiration Avenue: "Bake"

Sorry I've been missing in action all week- I've been teaching an art camp and haven't time or energy for blogging or to visit any of my bloggy friends!
Lucky for me, this week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue was "bake"
 and one of my little projects was for us make an edible color wheel- it doesn't seem to matter how old or young the students are- they all LOVE this!
We use food coloring and white frosting and mix each color talking about primary, secondary and tertiary colors as we go- GREAT fun, and yummy too!
Sorry I don't have more pictures, (I wanted one with everyone) but the kiddies were too impatient to devour their color wheel for me to get any more than I did!
Be sure to pop over to Inspiration Avenue this Sunday to see what everyone else came up with.....Or ever better submit something of your own- just get it in by 12:00 on Sunday for it to be posted with everyone else's creations!

Have a great day!
P.S. If you want to make one of these color wheels, I do NOT recommend bargain food coloring like I used here- the colors are so much purer with McCormick or something comparable.

I saw this come up on my sidebar just as my IA challenge entry was posting. I love color wheels and this is a very creative way of creating one. Love the concept and how well it fits with this week's challenge.

What a fun idea, and I can see why the kids loved it (so smart of you to teach them a lesson while appealing to their sweet teeth [tooths?])! I'm struggling with the "bake" challenge this week, but I'd better get busy. Have a wonderful weekend!

I've never seen the cupcakes used before! Bravo. This looks like a great idea for kids or anyone to learn the color wheel. Who wouldn't want to be in your class!

Edible colour wheel - wow, I'm salivating... Was there by any chance any left?

Ooh, how fun! Great way to teach the color wheel. I'm surprised you were able to get any photo at all! :) Looks like you've had your hands full. REST!
