Science Cookie Round Up #1



Science cookie round-up time!

I'm working on my next batch of science cookies, they require a lot of drying time between icing so it is probably going to take a few days work. (Note: my dodgy circuit board cookies are not the current project, they are just a little side science cookie I played with a while back.) So, until I finish this next round of baking and icing science cookies, I thought I would do a science cookie round-up for all the eager science cookie fanatics out there.

These are some of the cookies I've stumbled across or have been sent to me and I love them. Popularizing science through baking is a very good thing. If anyone would like to do, or has done a little science themed baking, e-mail me some cookies and I'll be happy to post them in the second round-up.

So, lets get to the cookies! Starting with these awesome cookies by Katy. I think it was worth covering her kitchen "in powdered sugar and chunks of icing ribosomes."


Petri Dish cookies by lalzi22:

A great assortment of science cookies from Tamsin, Carrie and Katie:


I just love that warty toad.

Trilobite spritz cookies from Elyse:


Fractical cookies by the Evil Mad Scientist:


Maitreya's petri dish and C. elegans cookies:


A nice selection of flora and fauna from Prophet-of-bloom.blogspot.com and bakeoff-flunkie.blogspot.com:

(The above are done with natural plant dyes, how sweet is that!)



Dylana's amazing and periodic table (she used store bought shortbread squares which was a brilliant move):

Those C. elegans at Dartmouth are pretty fancy:


Love Christina's conical flask cookies:


We will end the round-up on Benjamin's delightfully disturbing esophageal dysphagia cookies (and they get even weirder after the jump):

  5. Very creative. I might have had a better grade in science if they had put the material on cookies.

  19. I went to the Prophet of Bloom Blogspot to find the secret to the natural food dyes for the cookies picture above -- could not find. . .do you have the specific recipes.

    I have some food sensitivities and the natural dye aspect is very appealing. . .can you help? (I did try and contact but to no avail)

  22. Inspired by your containment suit cookies, I baked gingerbread Marsonauts to welcome my husband and his crewmates back to "Earth" after two weeks at the Mars Society's Utah research station. Greatly appreciated! And fun to do.

  29. Wonderful! Just wanted to point out that such baking has a long tradition: according to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Austrian scientist Ida Freund (1863-1914), a chemistry lecturer at Newnham College, was noted for her creative teaching and encouragement of women students. Her "stunts" included making a periodic table entirely out of cakes, with the numbers made from chocolate.
