Today marks the second anniversary of A Schooner of Science. ‘Tis a time to reflect, to appreciate, to eat cake.
Thanks to all who read this, ’tis great to have you on board.
// May 10th, 2010 // Comments Off on Laser Cut Cake, Delicious Technology // Just for FunThis cake was cut using a laser, as seen on Instructables. First a cake was baked (yum), and a design mapped out using a program called CAD. We used CAD in high school, but never to make cake. I believe that is what’s wrong with the education system.
CAD is a tricky (well, I found it hard) engineering program which works out angles and scales and junk to tell the laser where to cut to get your design. They had to do test cuts with the laser, because cake is a different material than the laser is used to.
Once it was cut, WITH A LASER, it was frosted and the layers were put together in an extremely geeky way. Delicious!
Take THAT not so humble pie! I’m kidding, I love you.
