I'm on outpatient orthopedic surgery this month, and I knew that I had to make appropriate cupcakes to bring into conference and clinic. It's not too difficult to find bone-related items given that Halloween is just around the corner. I found a perfect skeleton bones chocolate mold.
I took some of these to musculoskeletal clinic where most patients have knee or hip complaints. Unfortunately, the mold didn't include either of those joints! I suppose we can't fault a cake and candy company for not being anatomically correct.
The title of these cupcakes is from this little video:
I must say, I like that my friends going into ortho and some of the orthopods joke about the video. Besides, it makes me laugh every time I watch it (it might not be all that amusing to individuals not involved in health care).
Medical cupcakes are so fun to create. My next clinical rotation at the hospital here is anesthesia. Maybe I'll make fondant ET tubes or something.
