In The Not So Distant Future, Glow-In-The-Dark Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Is that… is that even healthy?

There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.

I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.

nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.

In which case

GLOWY

FORESTS

GLOWY

TREES

GLOWY

EVERYTHING

(I like glowy things)

this has “fantasy magical forest” written all over it and I love it

Bacon Chocolate Cupcakes

For the chocolate cake cupcakes, I used Saucy’s amazing re-box recipe – which is great if you are a bit crunched for time.

  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter
Pour the batter into cupcake liners and bake for 18 minutes at 350°F. Set aside to cool before icing.
 

For the icing (feel free to add in more or less as you see fit):

  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 5-6 cups of icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 5 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 tsp of Wilton butter flavouring
  • 1/2 cup of melted chocolate chips (melted with 1 tbsp of butter & 2 tbsp of heavy cream)
  • 2 tbsp of heavy cream
  • 4 tbsp of cocoa powder

To candy your bacon, fry up the bacon with some maple syrup and lots of brown sugar until its nice and crisp. Once the bacon has had a chance to cool, cut it up into thin little slices.

Ice your cupcakes with a 1M Wilton tip and sprinkle the bacon strips on top. Feel free to sprinkle on some raw sugar to give it that extra visual punch. Place in mouth & enjoy!
