Last Tuesday we had a delicious, colorful, and (at times) messy night at the Nuke Your Food! program. High schoolers met up in the Cardinal Room to create some nommy noms, such as a mug cake! The twist on this cooking class was that we made everything in a mug and just using a microwave.
What was doubly awesome about the night was that we also got to decorate and keep our food receptacles (mugs) using ink-based Sharpies!
All you need to do is buy special oil-based/paint markers, decorate a ceramic mug, and bake it in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees!
