Pi Day

Pi Day
Mathematics plays a huge role in baking and if you've been following the most recent recipes on PhamFatale, you probably noticed Sunny's gorgeous vanilla buttercream ruffle cake. For those who might not know, Sunny is my oldest (and self-proclaimed coolest) sister-in-law. She's 18 and a senior in high school. Sunny is a math genius who recently caught the baking fever. Since it's her last year in high school, her homework workload has diminished quite a bit and now she feels the urge and has the energy to bake a lot after school! It's a good thing she excels in mathematics; measurements, fractions and geometry are necessary in this culinary field too. Coincidentally, she will receive by the end of today an answer from one of her college applications. We're all very anxious about the results (nobody wants her to move to the East Coast!). 

We have no clue where Sunny will attend college next year; all I can predict is she's going to love the pies I bake for her today on Pi Day. Whether the answer from colleges is positive or not, I know she'll find comfort in one of her favorite treats: pie! 

I've listed many of the pie recipes I've baked recently. Enjoy!
