It turned out the Tunnock's Tea Cakes were unsuitable for people with nut allergies. That was a bummer, so I made Danny some homemade ones. Obviously, they're not Tunnock's...they're Margruder's.
I improvised a half-assed version of a box too. Could have been neater.
These were easy to do. Using sillicone moulds, I brushed them with chocolate, and when solid, I carefully removed them, and filled the interior with marshmallow fluff. I then affixed it to a shortbread that I cut with a glass to get just the right size. I piped them sealed with more melted chocolate, and that was that.
Not exactly the same, but good enough. I also made some homemade Twix bars with the same shortbread cut into logs and topped with caramel and chocolate. Those took all day to make (because I had to make the caramel) but it was worth it. Nut allergies are a drag, but it really is possible to make "faux" versions of popular junk food at home. I have my priorities (and they don't include laundry, mopping the floors, or dusting).
Now, for the Haunted part...
Every year, the physics department at Creighton University puts on the Haunted Physics Lab.
There's a couple dozen stations to show various laws of physics at work.
The exhibits don't change much year to year, but we love going anyway.
There's plenty to do, scary music, black lights, and graduate students you can stump with your questions.
Whoa, I just lit that bulb up by waving it past that thing. Cool, man.
Even in the Haunted Lab.
Reading the posters in the physics department will instantly make you feel like an idiot. Are there really people that understand that shit?
The science building is quite beautiful...
...But don't stare up too long or you'll get dizzy (and it hurts my neck!).
