About this Bake

This was entered into a "bake your PhD" competition. The jelly baby is me, holding duct tape to put up thermometers in the Himalayas. The blue and red stripes represent the temperature decreasing further up the mountain and the mountain on the right is Mt Everest. The arrows are the wind.

Top tip

Don't put the temperature scale on the wrong way around! Also, make sure there's someone to help you with the icing.
