raisin cake model
  • Model of the expansion of the universe based on the analogy of a raisin cake being cooked. As the cake is cooked, it expands by rising and the raisins are pushed farther apart. Provided the cake is of generous proportions, the expansion looks similar no matter which raisin the observer sits on, just as the expansion of the universe looks the same from every galaxy.
