Periodic Table Birthday Cupcakes

Fri, 2014-10-10 20:35

On Oct 9, the Ariya group made a nice surprise to their supervisor. The entire lab baked, decorated, transported and setup  over 100 cupcakes to create a periodic table. The colours of the icing were characteristic of whether the element was part of the s block, d block, p blocks or f blocks and the non-metals were also frosted and of the five flavours of cupcakes: butter pecan, double fudge chocolate, red velvet, carrot cake and vanilla were characteristic of the various blocks of the periodic table. Due to lack of time, a few elements were missing, but who wants inert cupcakes anyways!
