Was Googling for interesting stuff made with PVC pipe today and happened upon this impressive theme cake from Craig T. Fifer of Alexandria, Virginia:

The Orbiter is made from brownie covered in fondant; the orange External Tank is made from PVC pipe and holds ice cream; the white Solid Rocket Boosters are made from PVC pipe and hold chocolate syrup and caramel sauce, respectively; and the brownie base is topped with whipped cream steam with color mist and sprinkles.
