Happy Halloween from Ph.D.-serts!
To celebrate, here’s a cake we made last weekend for a sweet girl turning 16 TODAY! What better way to celebrate a Sweet 16 birthday party on Halloween than with a costume party!? Happy Birthday, Samantha!
Jeremiah & Megan are in the same doctoral program I was in at the University of Florida. Jeremiah specifically studies pain receptors and uses an apparatus that looks a lot like this one (and is technically called a Thermal Preference Apparatus):
The yellow is all buttercream. The walls of the apparatus were made of gum paste that was allowed to dry for 1 week. The other decorations are fondant, and the numbers are hand-piped with royal icing.
