I've recently given up chocolate (and most other sweets) in a futile attempt to get in better shape for my upcoming race season. Of course this means I can think of nothing but sugar. ("Did you say ice cream?!?! No, I said 'ion beam.'" ) So I figured I would talk about all the tasty physics treats I can't currently eat. Enjoy, because I know I won't!
Periodic Table of Cupcakes
One of my favorite Food Network shows is 'Cupcake Wars.' They produce the most amazing stuff in such a short amount of time. And cupcakes are just so cute and so tasty and you can try so many different flavors without going into sugar shock. And this is the awesomest cupcake display I've seen. Cake and science all at once! It was created for a chemical engineering department reception. There is a friendly rivalry between chemistry and physics and they are close to having us beat in the baked goods department with that display. However, we still win with our famous laser cake.
