Something's cooking in Apartment 205.

Our periodic table cupcakes garnered lots of attention from some of our favorite sites.  For your viewing pleasure, here are links, as well as a sampling of the comments from each.

Reddit.com frontpage (500+ points)

“It’d be awesome if the heavy ones were mud cakes and the light ones were sponges. I mean, it’s awesome anyway, but it could be super-awesome.”

“I know there’s a reddit for damn near everything but that takes the cake.”

“Oh my jesus god I have to make this.”

HuffingtonPost.com

“If only my chemistry teacher used cupcakes to teach me the periodic table perhaps I’d know the chemical behavior of Boron.”

Neatorama.com

“I hear hydrogen and helium are very light and fluffy.”

“Really went all out with the tablecloth.”

“Forget the cupcakes. That girl’s cute.”

TheDailyWhat.com

“Surely the best birthday party this side of Bohrium (named in honor of Niels Bohr, noted party animal).”

Digg.com frontpage (1900 2000+ diggs)

“O-Mn O-Mn O-Mn O-Mn”

“That’s one way to get more iron in your diet!…sorry :/”

“I love you, Periodic Table Cupcake Girl. You’ve got all the elements of sweetness I need”

“Can you give me her, um, atomic number?  Or is she already in a covalent bond with someone else?”

“Don’t worry, if she was only in a covalent bond with someone else you would still have a shot, the real problem would be if she was in an ionic bond.”

Geekologie.com

“If she used enriched flour, the plutonium cupcake’s going to get her in a heap of trouble.”

“Woah! Wait a sec! She’s a geek, she’s cute AND she bakes?!? Why is this woman not married to me yet?……oh, right, because I suck….I forgot for a second….”

“Nice.  I’m sure the cupcakes taste good, but I wouldn’t want to ruin the table by eating one.”

Wired.com

“some of those transactinides are not officially recognized by the IUPAC…I’d still eat em! :)

“!!!!”

Microsiervos.com

Finally, for sheer wtf-awesomeness, Spanish-language blog Microsiervos:

“Estos pastelillos que componen la tabla periódica cocinados por Katherine y su hermana –una nerd de la química– debieron tener mucho éxito en la fiesta de cumpleaños para la que fueron concebidos.”

Which, if Google Translate is to be believed, roughly translates to:

“These cakes that make up the periodic table cooked by Katherine and her sister-a chemistry nerd had to be very successful birthday party for their intended purpose.”

Hopefully we’ll see more posts featured in the future.  As our friend Jeffrey says, “You know your friends are famous when they end up in your RSS reader.”
