Would you like to take this F1 racer for a spin?

The chefs at the Royal Plaza on Scotts put together this F1 racing car made of bread. This is in time for the F1 night races in Singapore this September.

Ok, we've had our fun. Now, who thinks that's actually a criminal a waste of bread, even in a wealthy country like Singapore?

My apologies if I did not give the context of my posting. This was part of an effort to generate funds for worthwhile causes.

The competition requires you to guess the weight of flour. we have this information:



The car, which is made of 1,000 loaves of bread, is moulded from the following ingredients: about 14 litres of water, 15kg of yeast, 2kg of salt, 10.8 litres of food varnish and an undisclosed amount of flour.



So, working backwards, and assuming 65% hydration, based on 14 litres of water that would be about 21 kg of flour. For 1000 loaves? Not possible.


How about using the 2 kg of salt, and hoping that the chefs were not intending to make that high salt fake Play-Doh? That suggests 100 kg of flour. Getting there, I think.


But maybe they used only 1% salt. That would be 200 kg of flour. And that's my final answer.

Wow! That's an impressive work of art. That surely take a lot of bread. I hope I could see it in person and check out the different types of bread they put on it. That really took a lot of effort to make the wheel axle assembly and body structure of the F1. Truly an impressive work. Great job guys!

That would be sooo much fun, but what would we do with our oops loaves.  Did you see how symmetrical all those loaves were???  Pam
