It's time for this month's Science Cookie Roundup!
I realize now that it has been a while since I've done my own set of science cookies, but don't fret dear reader! I have a large set of science cookies in the works. Joanne of www.joannelovesscience.com and I will be working together on a little edible and educational nerdery. I'll keep you all updated when that comes together.
So, lets get to this month's contributions!
I got an email from Anthony, the president of a club that promotes science at the University of Maryland a few weeks back. He sent me an absolute wealth of goodies from their science themed bake sale.
Isn't that an awesome spread!?
Next we have Karen and the cookies she made for National Med. Lab Week last year (in Canada). She sent in Neutrophils and Lymphocytes! This year Karen and her co-worker will be making more cell lines. Hopefully we will get to see some of those too! (*hint, hint*)
The next item is a Plant Cell Cake by sleeper713:
"This was a science project that I helped my son with in 8th grade. It's a plant cell complete with its innards ;) We used bubble tape and Nerds candy for the golgi bodies, Tic-Tacs, oval-shaped cookies, and gummi worms. This was a lot of fun! My son came up with the ideas for decorating it."
The next is part of a Flickr set by Kitsunetachi:
"Part of our Mad Science Cookies set.
vacuum tubes, test tube, atoms, periodic table elements, gears, and experimental cookies"
To view the full set: Check out blog.foxdowns.com
Dan's fiance of Molecularfossils.com made these Electrophoresis Gel cookies for a Darwin Day party.
Madilyne made these for her brother-in-law, who just defended his PhD thesis on drosophila research!
Mmmmm yummy bugs!
I'll wrap up this month's roundup with Anna's frighteningly realistic Mice Cookies!
"I made these as a Secret Santa gift for my boss and they are a bit hit - my lab mates thought they were delicious and creative! Since we work with C57 BL/6 mice in our lab, this was appropriate."
Despite their looks, no actual mice were harmed in their creation. They were made with a chocolate covered cherry, a Hershey kiss face and little almond ears. Cute!
Oh and if you want to be included in next month's science cookie roundup, just email your pictures to notsohumblepieblog (at) gmail dot com and you'll see them in the next roundup.
(Also, if I missed your submission this month, give me a quick comment/reminder and I'll fix that.)
