Eva may be the Alton Brown of the family because her Science Fair project had to do with food science. Specifically Cake science. She studied the best way to grease/line a pan so that she got the smoothest bottomed cake. We ended up being able to benefit as well because.. well, cake! She tried a few methods for getting the pans ready. She used butter and flour and parchment paper on one, parchment paper alone, butter and a butter/powdered sugar combination. She learned that parchment paper by itself was the best.

The Science Fair was tonight and the church basement was packed with kids and parents. Everyone had their tri-fold foam board and there were a ton of interesting experiments that people did. So many people did eggs and toothpaste or eggs and things that either stained them or more. Lots of plants and there was even an experiment that compared the red dyes in Skittles over M&Ms. Eva did an excellent job presenting her findings and talking about her experiment. We are very proud of the work that she did.
