Baking the periodic table

Me standing on the kitchen counter, fixing a shovel to the top of the cupboard using loo rolls and realising I'd look totally insane under any other circumstances

I came, I baked, I arranged – 118 biscuits, 38 cocoa, 80 plain butter ones. Two hours of baking, one hour of writing, half an hour trying to fix my camera phone in a position so I can film myself building the table (fixing a shovel to the top of the kitchen cupboards and then fixing my phone on the shovel handle did the trick).

And here it is – home baked Periodic table of elements. And yes, it took me three tries to get arranging the elements in the right order done in under ten minutes and I cheated a bit on the lanthanides and actinides (sadly, the light plus the green icing make them quite hard to see).

Extra kudos to my non-chemist flatmate who stayed up late, helped me set up the camera and label the biscuits while inventing new names for elements (poor terbium got renamed tuberculosis…)

    I’ve studied masters in organic chemistry.
    But I haven’t come across such a tempting periodic table….
