Antibacterial Defense Cakes

What makes these cakes antibacterial? Well they each have the structure of an naturally produced antibiotic on them. Why these structures? Each of these structures was important to the PhD dissertation of myself and two fellow graduate students. We finished our degrees this spring, and had fun creating cakes for each other.

I have to say I'm enjoying the smudge tool in photoshop because it really does look like I've swirled the icing to obscure the last names!

I didn't do the script on any of the cakes, but I did draw the molecules on two. My handwriting is so bad, I was afraid to do the lettering on these cakes... and just imagine my fear before I had to do Keith's cake all by myself! Stay tuned for the next post....
