  1. I want a Discworld cake – actually, I want a Discworld sculpture that looks like that cake, because I would not eat that cake, because it is too cool!!

    Also, I like that you the Cookie Monster rapping about vegetables linked to your blog. 🙂

    This is sad, you post all this food science, and I comment on fantasy cakes and the Cookie Monster. Oh well, don’t want you to feel your efforts are unappreciated!!
