Better Living Through Food Science

Thanks to some inspired Australians who run Black Star Pastry, the world now knows the magic and majesty of the glowing donut: the Glonut. To celebrate Sydney’s Vivid Festival, an annual event of light, music and creativity, baker Christopher Thé infused icing with Vitamin B so that it would glow under black lights.

The luminescent results are worthy of Springfield’s Nuclear Power plant. But actually, while the donuts are wonderfully inventive, they don’t begin to match the visual impact of the lighting of the sails of Sydney’s Opera House.

Wow. Winter in Australia looks really, really cool.
