The Periodic Table in Muffins

  • Hack Details: This hack combines my two favorite subjects: Science and Food. I plan to recreate the periodic table in muffins, one per element, with icing to match the different groups. This has been done before with cup cakes; I plan to do it with blueberry muffins. I'll be using organic and gluten free ingredients where possible, although cooking them in Tog's kitchen may negate the healthy aspects. I have one helper so far, need people to help with: Cleaning the kitchen & oven 🙂 Mixing Icing Eating.
