I wish.  I would weigh twice as much if I was, but I would love it!

Your idea sounds really cool though.

Have you ever made spun sugar from caramel? You could use that for the orange colored threads.

This pic shows it mounded up but you could drag the threads of caramel over the top of the cake in  a flatter pattern.

The blue could be done with cotton candy-just pull it apart into long threads.

There are lots of pics of bubble chambers here.

You can buy cotton candy in bags at most malls.

You could try string licorice.

You could pipe the pattern with a #1 tip. It might take a long time but you could be very precise

You can paint on fondant pretty easily, if you mix gel food coloring with vodka to get a paint consistency, then you can freehand it directly on to the fondant. I think it might be tough to do it in spun sugar, as it’s pretty delicate and I’m not sure you could drag it out with enough precision to get the design you want.
