Fun cake technology

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Just something random and fun - 

I work in materials science and saw this in one of my newsletters that came out today.

Pretty neat application for cake decorating...I can think of so many things you could cut in addition to the petite fours they show...! :)  Enjoy!

@K8memphis: You could probably get people to pay you just to watch you torte with a garden hose...that would be hilarious!

That was awesome! I'm a former materials science engineer (now a stay at home mom) and I really enjoyed geeking out on that video! Thanks!!! Never knew I could combine materials science and caking!

I remember back in the 1970s, when Popular Science covered then-new waterjet cutting technology. One of the pictures showed how a waterjet cutter could cut out foam rubber insoles at so many "feet per minute" (their pun, and I'm sure it was intended).

 

And on the "keep hands away" part, no kidding! I'm reminded of something the docents say on the USS Hornet engine room tour (at the old Alameda Naval Base): the steam going to the turbines was under so much pressure that a leak posed an amputation hazard (and hot enough to instantly cauterize said amputation); if they had to locate such a leak, they used a broom: when the bristles (or the handle!) got cut off by something invisible, they'd found the leak.
