Laboratory Cake

I was asked to make a retirement cake for a work colleague who is gracefully retiring after a long career as a research scientist. This particular individual was pretty damn good at what he did and had a passion for Ornithology (thus the birds!). I thought it was fitting to put Bob in a crisp white lab coat with a light microscope and Gilson pipette. No one can do science without touching those particular items at some point…

and this one

Thinking about it, Bob should really be wearing blue nitrile gloves and safety spectaculars. Pretty poor laboratory practice really. Not to mention letting wild animals into the lab space….

edited Bob

Enjoy your retirement Bob! May you never touch a clinical waste bin again.
