Data cakes

If we can make candy molds, we can also make larger cupcakes molds.  Here is a chocolate cupcake tracing the path a malaria infected mouse takes through disease space (red blood cell by reticulocyte space to be exact).  What I find most beautiful about the cupcakes is that when you take a slice, the slice produces a bar graph of the data at that point in the infection; playing with your food lets you explore your data.
