Experiment? I hardly know ment!: A photoessay of dessert failure

Earlier this month Carmen threw the dessert gauntlet down and challenged us all to a chocolate-cake-in-a-mug-off. Some of us accepted that challenge. Some of us failed miserably. Some of us are me, and here is our story.This is the way it started, correctly enough. Ingredients: things that, with a little bit of heat and magic, somehow turn into a chocolate cake in a coffee mug. My hopes were high and my friends were in low places at this point.

Hallowe'en Treat #1: Orange Chocolate Mousse

I could write out a recipe for this, and probably will at some point this week, but fuck me was this tiring. I may write a couple of don'ts for this recipe so you'll have some idea of some of the things that went wrong.

I'm a poll, you're a poll, let's be polls together.

We had a poll. Here's a fucking chart.
Eat a dick, science.

Choco-banana Pancake

If there is but one fact we can all base our entire faith in science on, it's that pancakes are the best (Richard Feyman, 1951). Now, how do we make the best thing in the world even better? Let's put some Nutella and banana slices up in there. Let me show you how! This is what you'll need:

What you see here is:
- Pancake batter (PRO TIP: add some oatmeal to your pancake batter. It's good and good for you!)
- Some Nutella (or equivalent)
- 1 banana
- Vanilla Kesam (like vanilla yoghurt but thicker)

NDSM Picture of the day (week/month/year): Looks like science, tastes like dessert!

This is a dessert I once ate while on vacation in Indonesia. I didn't make it myself. I didn't even buy it myself, but I did order it myself! Doesn't it look very cool? I don't remember what it was though, maybe some kind of pudding. But it has smoke! And while it doesnt look much like a dessert, it does look a lot like science, so win-win!

Science experiments!

What is science without some experiments? BORING!

But seeing how we editors of New Dessert Science Magazine, are super busy with doing research and other science things, we wanted to ask YOU, the reader (Yes, you lonely reader!) to help us out!

We ask you to work on this experiment and comment us the pictures! With some comments on how it turned out! (Or tweet us and we will help you, you know who we are.)

Here is the experiment!
