I have this slightly backwards, don’t I? The basics should come before the fancy pancy added-flavour recipe, right? Oh, well – the story of my life. Why make things simple and start from the beginning, when you can make things complex and confuse everyone (including yourself)?

Today marks precisely one year since I’ve pressed the Publish button on my very first post on The Loopy Whisk. It feels like 5 minutes… and 10 years have passed since then. Time’s a funny thing. I am now a 2nd year PhD student, still making a mess in the lab and an even greater mess in the kitchen.

Bundt cakes. Such a strange thing, aren’t they?
Tell someone you’ve made a bundt cake and all you’ll be met with are blank stares. A what cake? And it’s surprisingly difficult to explain the concept of a bundt cake. The conversation usually goes something like this:

“A what cake?”
“A bundt cake. It’s a cake with a hole in the middle.”
“So… a donut?”
“No. It’s a bundt cake. A cake. With a hole. In the middle.”
“Huh. Never heard of it. What’s the point of the hole?”
(At this point, you usually start feeling the urge to bang your head against the nearest wall.)
“It’s… it’s… Oh for goodness’ sake, just google it.”
