Create a delicious-looking art piece with Corobuff® paper! This sculpture project allows students to learn more about the classic art of cake decoration. Help them put their own spin on creating and decorating a classic cylindrical cake with Corobuff corrugated paper and other decorative elements to create a piece of art that looks good enough to eat.
Corobuff Cake Sculpture Art Project
Students will experiment with math properties and concepts to create a successful cake design. The pre-marked grids on the Corobuff paper sheets make it easier for students to ensure that their cake design looks uniform. Suitable for grades 5-9.
Tips for Creating a Corobuff Cake Sculpture
- Have students begin the project by discussing the history of cake design and why cakes have traditionally been cylindrical
- Encourage students to collect images of decorated cakes for inspiration when planning their cake decorations
- After and during the cake design process, have students explain why they chose their intended design and decorative features
