IT HAS BEEN pretty hot in Perth, Australia, over the past few days.

On Monday, for instance, temperatures reached 42 degrees celsius.

*weeps and melts*

In order to demonstrate just how intense the heat was, one Perth resident decided to bake cupcakes in her car. No, really.

On Monday, Kellie Hill wrote, “From now on when I’m travelling and people don’t believe me how hot it gets in Australia I will tell them about the day that I baked cupcakes in my car,” and shared photos of her literally cooking cupcakes in her car.

Look!

Holy moly.

The image was subsequently shared on a Facebook page called Perth WA Memes where it received over 14,000 likes and 4,000 shares.

As for why Hill decided to embark on the experiment?

I just really wanted some cupcakes and our oven sucks haha. It actually took a suprisingly short time for them to bake, I’d hate to be a living thing trapped in there.

No word on how they tasted, but WAtoday.com.au consulted a local baker named Kylie Reid to find out if baking cupcakes in your car was actually possible.

Her verdict? Sure, but they probably wouldn’t taste great.

While she had heard of frying eggs on cars, baking eggs in concert with a range of other precisely measured ingredients was a different story. She said cupcakes would probably cook eventually in a car at 70 degrees but they would probably not have an even consistency all the way through. 

Still impressive, though.
