Columbia Engineers 3D Print Layered Cheesecake

Researchers at Columbia University’s Creative Machine Labs recently used their creative machines to 3D print slices of cheesecake; layer by layer the machine dispensed triangular troughs of graham cracker paste to hold other ingredients like peanut butter and Nutella. I’m hungry just thinking about it! Although I was already hungry if I’m being perfectly honest.

In the video, the 3D printer attempts eight different cheesecake variations of increasing complexity. It fails a couple of them but does manage to complete the most challenging print. Although, to me, there’s no such thing as a failed cheesecake print, just a messy dessert.

The 3D printer uses a fine-nozzle extruder to build layers of graham cracker paste as the base of the cheesecake, adding walls to hold the softer ingredients inside. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned from baking, it’s that you don’t want your soft ingredients on the outside, or they might just end up at the bottom of the oven. Then the fire department has to come and threatens to take away my baking privileges!
