Trained cancer sniffing bees in beautifully crafted multi-chambered Portuguese labware? This is technology I can get excited about.
Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

Super Minions Figures!
Last month we started shipping all of our custom cake figures, and we’ve been busy busy busy! These little guys are about 4” inches tall and have teeny details like teeth, folds in their capes and utility belts.
There was 9 in all; IronMan, Spider-Man, Thor, Captain America, Batman, Superman, Captain America, Hulk, and Hawkeye!
All these colors were achieved with red, yellow, blue, and green food coloring mixed into white frosting. The amount of drops needed for the color you want is underneath the icing color. So convenient. :)
I love Mint Chip = 3 blue, 3 green
