My educational background is in science and in fact I have a PhD in Materials Science. This may sound like an unlikely pairing between cakes and scientific research but the two areas have more in common than you might think.
Baking a cake is very much like an experiment, where you have to be precise and accurate with your ingredients, temperature and timing. Also, cakes are quite structural so require logical thought and planning to put them together. Add all this to the need for patience and attention to detail and you have yourself an edible science project.
