Breakage angle of chocolate cakes

Data on the breakage angle of chocolate cakes made with three different recipes and baked at six different temperatures. This is a split-plot design with the recipes being whole-units and the different temperatures being applied to sub-units (within replicates). The experimental notes suggest that the replicate numbering represents temporal ordering.

Details

The replicate factor is nested within the recipe factor, and temperature is nested within replicate.
