Marriages challenge: Kortirion: "It’s Not Rocket Science!"

Title: It’s Not Rocket Science!
Author: Kortirion
Characters: Pippin and Merry
Source: LotR – ish, maybe movie!verse?
Disclaimer: Tolkien owns them.

How hard could it be? Pippin lined the bowls up carefully, the finely ground powders each had a distinct function – a pinch of this, two spoons of that, and carefully blend together in the mixing bowl…
“What are you doing?”
Merry’s voice made him drop a spoon, Pippin flinched, but the mix wasn’t damaged.
“Don’t do that!”
“What? Anyway, what you doing?”
“A marriage of light and air...” breathed Pip.
“That’ll never rise.”
“It will! It’s mixed just right!”
“Go on then – prove it”

But alas, it was rocket science after all – as their singed hair and blackened faces proved!
