It’s hard to believe the Great Geobakeoff is already in its third magnificent year! It’s been twelve months since our twitter feed was last covered in cake, and we have missed you, geobakers. We hope you’ve been practising, because, once again in time for the Easter holidays, we’re excited to bring you….The Great Geobakeoff 2016!
A guest post from geologist and geobaker extraordinaire, Catherine Kenny… It occurred to me over breakfast one morning that Cheerios look a lot like crinoids. I have a piece of limestone from Dudley encrusted with broken crinoids, smashed brachiopods and the odd fragment of trilobite. I wondered about re-creating it, in chocolate.
