Step 1:

I cut strips of old news paper.

Step 2:

Then, I dipped the strips of newspaper in a wash composed of clay and water. This is a very thin mixture.

Step 3:

Next, laying each piece across recycled plastic containers, I repeated this process to get five layers. It dries out to be very hard and durable surface.

Step 4:

Last, I painted the cake to resemble my favorite Artist-Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night!
