                        thank goodness: not gushers, twix or twizzlers. claire demonstrating food science technique. i find that her explainations of stuff seem pretty easy to follow and pay attention to. ..for one reason or another. and when brad kinda chimes in on various things he either agrees with and sometimes not, its neato. when its starbursts- its just pointless. its not that claire achieving the unachievable isn't astounding: its just that if robots make twinkies and peeps better than humans, yes, wait for it. ..there's a reason. In the case of the last two items, its the cream filling/marshmallow injection. real marshmallow comes out of a thirty ton machine? sure. just read the ingredients. leave robot confections to the robots.

                                    After watching these videos, I was inspired to give cake baking a try. I created, tested and perfected my very own recipe; much to the delight of my family and friends. I would love to share this recipe with you if you're interested in trying it. It's a gluten free chocolate coconut cake and while it doesn't have a soak (there were problems with it during testing so I skipped it), it was inspired by your baking lessons.

                                            Why not just butter and flour?
