Now back in June, I did a post called Links Worth Sharing which is exactly what it says on the tin. Regularly, I share links on my personal Facebook and Twitter accounts so figured I should do the same on my blog too as you probably have similar interests to me if you are reading my content in the first place. I have three baking themed links to share this time around and two of them are science related, enjoy!
1. The Cakes of Science - Now if you enjoy baking and happen to study/work in science like myself then you will thoroughly enjoy this picture heavy article featured in The Guardian. My personal favourites are the first periodic table cupcakes shown in the article as it is the perfect excuse to justify making 114 cupcakes and the cake which has a message written in DNA base code.
2. Now strictly speaking, this isn't baking related but more to do with the fruits of your culinary labour - here is The Scientific Way of Cutting a Cake. Yes ladies and gentlemen, for centuries, we have all been doing it wrong. Watch this video, it will make cake even better than it already is.
3. It was my best friend's birthday last month so I baked her some cupcakes because she liked them when I baked them for my Parkinson's Awareness Week bake sale back in April. I want to improve my piping technique and found this video by Cupcake Jemma to be really useful.
Here are the cupcakes I baked for my friend which were vanilla cupcakes with a blue vanilla buttercream icing topped with wafer daisies to finish them off with an overall pastel coloured look:
Hopefully the above links don't leave you feeling too hungry. Have a great week and see you next weekend!
Until next time, take care.
