Volcano Cake Experiment with Adrienne Doll
Back Button
Now you can perform an experiment at home with Adrienne Attoms, Project Mc2's resident culinary chemist (yes, it's a thing!). Create a volcano eruption just using safe household ingredients.

Picking Up S.T.E.A.M.: 'Lava' will spurt out of the mouth of the mini volcano with help of a little vinegar, baking soda and dish soap. The baking soda, which acts as a base, neutralizes the acid in the vinegar. Together, there is a release of carbon dioxide gas, which causes the fizzing action in your volcano. Pretty cool, right?
