A journey into science, kitchen chemistry and physics –using America’s favorite high-calorie “Golden Sponge Cake with Creamy Filling”
We took some Grade 1 kids, and deconstructed a store bought Twinkie - with the goal of building a better Twinkie.
- We ended up making two flavors of Twinkie pastry - yellow-cake, and chocolate (YC was from scratch; chocolate we used Bob's Red mill chocolate cake; For fillings
- SAVORY included Aged Goat Cheese, Italian White Truffle, Tabasco
- SWEET included LIME, STRAWBERRY, and PLUM
- DIGESTIF was Coffee Caramel
We put together a PPT/PDF deck below of some of the kids' ideas, photos of the day, and 'results'. We ran short of time to set the twinkies on fire to measure calories - perhaps next time...
