    Criminals with connections to the Black Cobra network are suspected by police of pilfering 120 boxes of almond tarts, punch rolls, apple crowns and brownies from a delivery truck in southern Sweden on Thursday.

The tasty treats were stolen on Wednesday night from a truck belonging to Godbiten, an Åstorp-based firm specialising in the production of traditional Swedish cakes and buns.

    ATLANTA - With two bad knees, Shirley O. Corriher is not quite as nimble as she once was when she performs her "protein hop" - an interpretive dance of sorts to demonstrate the molecular transformations that turn flour, eggs and sugar into a cake. Her arms wave vigorously, mimicking how proteins in wheat flour interlock to provide the structure that holds a baked good together. "When you add water to flour and stir," she says, "these two little proteins - glutenin and gliadin - grab water first, and each other, to make these springy elastic sheets of gluten." Ms. Corriher,...
