Harvard students invent cake from a spray can

For two Harvard University undergrads, what began as "an excuse to eat a lot of cake" may turn into the invention of a lifetime. John McCallum, a 20-year-old from Louisiana, was daydreaming about cake his freshman year during his “Science of Cooking” class when he happened to see someone spraying whipped cream and thought to himself, why not spray cake? Is that possible? He and his girlfriend and fellow student Brooke Nowakowski went on to prove that it is, winning first place and $10,000 in the 2014 Harvard Innovation challenge, reports ABC News. Their "Spray Cake" involves spraying cake batter from a can, then cooking it for one minute in a microwave. You can also cook it in a traditional oven, and they say it will cook faster than typical batter because the spraying helps release air bubbles inside, prompting it to rise in the absence of baking soda or baking powder.

The ultimate test, though, came when the duo recently took Spray Cake—which, with just 30 seconds in a microwave, can also make cupcakes


I don't eat cheese from a spray can, and I'm not gonna try this either. It just doesn't look right. But, very interesting... and very quick if you have a severe munchie attack

How is this not getting more attention?! CAKE IN A CAN PEOPLE. CAKE IN A FREAKIN CAN. The best part is after spraying this culinary miracle, in just about 1 minute, you've got yourself a cake.

30 second cupcakes? How awesome is that?

I can't wait to get my hands on some spray cake. Then I'll have something to munch on while I'm lamenting my lack of a jetpack, flying car or second home in a Martian colony.

Does anyone else agree that they could just sit around all day and squirt that batter into their mouth?

I'm sure this is really good for your health.

Not.

Certainly stretching the concept of what can call itself food...
