Remember me?

Oh, hey guys. I'm still around. College pretty much destroys any opportunity to have Project Time.

In the time since cake weekend—which was LAST YEAR—I've gotten cleared to use the machine shop and I've snagged some nice insulation to keep my operations toasty. It's possible that I'll be able to use that instead of extra heating elements (see last post) to get that Baby George rotisserie up to the necessary 250°C.

In the meantime, I have a new Engineering Design project to work on for the final quarter of the school year! My team of four is doing something (not sure exactly what yet) regarding clay cookstoves in Malawi. Efficient heat movement is important! It sounds like I can maybe learn things that also apply to baking cakes. Win/Win!
