Marc Peters says:

Could I just leave three of eggs unseparated, or do they really need to be put separately

Jeremy Cabrera says:

could this technique work with other cakes or breads?

Quentin Garcia says:

Looks like steel wool.

S. Russell says:

Why would anyone eat this black goop when they can have a cupcake instead? Not to mention that the loud and obnoxious sound track is enough to discourage anyone from hanging around long enough to check it out in the first place. It’s painful to be here. Goodbye.

Julio La Fuente says:

Que alguienme explique ¿por qué hacer un bizcocho en microondas que tarda 4 horas cuando lo puedo hacer en horno convencional en 20 minutos, sin gastar la carga de gas y sin tener un sifón?
¿Sólo por presumir que fue hecho en sifón y cocinado en microondas?

Hal Nau says:

I love these vids but does anyone else find it hilarious that 1) this was advertised as a 40 second microwave cupcake but the prep time alone is at least 4 hours? 2) how they have the tools and professional look about them but yeah just throw it into a party city paper cup, yeah fondle the sponge a little, yeah break it apart w your hands—I laugh to myself

jLuis Chavez says:

el mismo estilo de Ferran Adria, muy bueno la verdad.

Sam Render says:

is the refrigeration step vital or is there a quicker way to do this

dazzerstar says:
