FFwD: Caramel topped semolina cake
Yesterday in class, we were talking about nano-wires (really, really small wires, only a few nanometers in diameter). These nanowires can be made approximately the same length as different types of cells. And the cells engulf the wires. Because, well, they can.
Apparently the cells like to eat the gold wires faster than any other type of wire. The cells have high taste.
Which got me thinking about cake. At this point in the class, what else is there to daydream about, but nano-cake? Do you think the cells would also engulf a high quality nanocake made from the freshest ingredients faster than they would engulf, oh, say a nanotwinkie?
In class, I decided they would. After all, the cells do have high taste.
I pictured a nano-caramel-topped-semolina-cake with its uniquely fantastic taste and texture. I decided the cells would consume that one quite quickly indeed. And then I realized my thoughts had gotten a little out of hand, and that I should probably pay attention again. Too much longer in my nanocake fantasy land and I would start giggling.
Unfortunately, though I actually did make the caramel topped semolina cake for a dinner party several weeks ago, I did not capture its beauty on camera. However, there was a Frenchman present at the dinner party and he approved. Win.
