R&D Tax Credits Available for 3D Printing of Cake and Baked Goods

R&D Tax Credits Available for 3D Printing of Cake and Baked Goods

Cake-making is a tasty science experiment that has transcended throughout centuries. Typical ingredients for a standard cake, such as flour, eggs, sweetener, some kind of fat, flavoring and a leavening agent, interact with each other to produce cakes of varying density, texture and taste. Although cake has evolved by the influence of various cultures and […]
