[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: Welcome back, it’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.


Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, but don’t brush too hard.


>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


[THEME SONG ENDS]


>> RACHEL: It’s Cooking Week, and tonight we have the answer to the quiz... 


[QUIZ THEME]


>> RACHEL: -from this morning. Our question was…


How tall was the tallest cake ever made?


Was it…..


Ten feet — as tall as a basketball hoop? 


[WHISTLE]


>> RACHEL: Fifty feet — as tall as a five-story building?


[LONGER WHISTLE] 


>> RACHEL: Or over 100 feet — that’s taller than 5 giraffes stacked on top of each other? 


[LONGEST WHISTLE] 


>> RACHEL: Ready for the answer? First, switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL] 


>> RACHEL: and give me a drumroll by stomping your feet.


[DRUMROLL]


>> RACHEL: The answer is… over 100 feet! Taller than 5 giraffes stacked on top of each other!


>> KIDS: WOW!


[MUSIC BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: The tallest cake ever made was baked in a city called Jakarta, in a country called Indonesia, and it took a lot of ingredients to make a cake that big. A typical cake uses a couple of eggs. This one used 54,000 eggs!  


[CHICKEN BAWK]


>> RACHEL: Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and brush the molars in the back, too.


[MUSIC OUT]


>> RACHEL: Baking any cake takes a lot of precision -- that means doing something very carefully. 


[MUSIC IN] 


>> RACHEL: The amount of eggs, butter, flour, baking soda, and other ingredients needs to be just right, or your cake might come out of the oven dry and crumbly...


[SAD TROMBONE]


>> RACHEL: or goopy. 


[GOOP]


>> KID: YUCKY!


>> RACHEL: That’s because there’s a lot of science baked into a cake!


Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and give your tongue a brush, too.


The scientific words for when batter turns into a cake in the oven is “chemical reaction”.


>> KID: HUH?


>> RACHEL: A chemical reaction means all the ingredients mix…


[BUBBLING]


>> RACHEL: -and then together become something totally new—a cake! Tell that to your teachers, and you might be able to get them to bring a cake to your next science lesson. 


>> KID: YAY!


[MUSIC OUT]

[THEME SONG BEGINS]  


>> RACHEL: That's it for Chompers tonight, but come back tomorrow to discover more cooking with us! Until then,
