The process is irreversible, just like a chemical reaction, and you need to have pretty exact quantities of all ingredients to avoid making a total mess.
Despite this, the making of baked goods still isn’t seen as particularly geeky, but I plan to change all this with my round-up of the geekiest cooking equipment on the market.
Geeky cooking equipment
I love a novelty cookie cutter and creating biscuits from these would give me infinitely more joy than actual lab equipment ever has. Buy them now for $12.99.
They’re from a museum, so eating the biscuits created with them must be educational. I actually own these myself and can verify for just how great they are. They’re a bit of a bargain at just £3.
If you’ve got dinosaur cookies, why not top off with dinosaur sprinkles, from Amazon?
Now, do you have a friend who is seriously into Star Wars? What better to give them for their birthday than a handmade Darth Vader cake? You can make them one using this Darth Vader baking tray from Firebox.
