Kamikazie Eggs Beat It In Awesome Cake Video

Chef Factor, a cooking contest in Ireland, recently has a call for entries.  The prize?  A 12 week cooking course, complete with tools of the trade for one lucky winner.

When Dee entered her legendary chocolate biscuit cake, her husband decided to do one better than download the required photo. 

He made a stop motion video of the cake making itself.  Watch how butter cuts itself into squares, biscuits crumble, and sugar pours by magic. Best moment is when the eggs decide to go all kamikazie for the greater good as they enjoy one last free fall before breaking into the batter.  Now we know what happened to Humpty Dumpty.

Set to The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, this video is totally entertaining - maybe because there's no annoying celebrity chef.  Read about Dee's cake here.
