Petit Plat Miniature Food Art | by Stephanie Kilgast
Stephanie Kilgast, creator of Petit Plat miniature food art, is one of the best miniature food makers I’ve ever seen in my entire time perusing Internetdom. She discovered the art of miniature making while looking for an enjoyable craft back in 2007, during her time studying for a masters in architecture. Since then, her (miniature) work has been a great hit, and no wonder, too. The really small scale of the foods, coupled with all that detail, is simply remarkable.Her work is highly recognized and has been exhibited all around the world.
Stephanie’s goal is to make people happy with miniatures that allow them to ‘put the world in their pockets’. Aww, charming..
… Y’see, now, y’see, I’m looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.
So you might end up with more donuts.
But then I also think… Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?
A round donut with radius R1 occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R1. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R2 and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R2, then the area of a round donut is πR12 - πr22. The area of a square donut would be then 4R12 - 4R22. This doesn’t say much, but in general and throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.
The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R2 = R1/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15πR12/16 ≃ 2,94R12, square: 15R12/4 = 3,75R12). Now, assuming a large center hole (R2 = 3R1/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7πR12/16 ≃ 1,37R12, square: 7R12/4 = 1,75R12). This tells us that, approximately, we’ll have a 27% bigger donut if it’s square than if it’s round.
tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.
Thank you donut side of Tumblr.
For anybody looking for menu ideas for a Doctor Who 50th Party, here’s everything I’ve done so far:
Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies (if you don’t have Doctor Who cutouts, you can still use stars, hearts and men decorated like your favorite Doctor)
Gingerbread TARDIS (including a template)
what the fuck
if i ever neglect to reblog this assume i’m dead
This is still my favorite video on Tumblr so far.
please watch this
this is a million times better than I was expecting
where’s the dingle dangle
102 chicken nuggets
why would you order 17 of 6 instead of 5 of 20… that shit’s expensive as hellGetting 2 four pieces is cheaper then 1 6 piece know your nuggets
but getting 1 20 piece is cheaper than 3 6 pieces KNOW YOUR NUGGETS
this is how word problems for math books are started, isn’t it.
You might wanna be careful about ordering super-sized meals in Japan.
THAT SOBA PILE THO
