Lately Ms. Humble of Not So Humble Pie, “your typical nerdy biological anthropologist turned stay at home mom and baker of sometimes strange goodies,” has cornered the market on science cookies. Check out her beautiful gel electrophoresis cookies (above): they are amazingly convincing AND ethidium bromide free (thank goodness). She’s also made drosophila melanogaster cookies, zebrafish cookies, circuit board cookies:
wii-mote and Six axis controller cookies (not science, but come on, gamers and scientists have a high overlap), and blood cell cookies. Check out this educational video using her blood cell cookies as props to teach basic physiology. Mmmm, macrophages: turnabout is fair play.
Ms. Humble has also compiled a series of roundups featuring science cookie photos (and science cakes) submitted by readers. If you, too, are a scicookiephile, you should definitely follow her blog. Thanks to Esmeralda for finding the blood cell video and suggesting this post!
