Happy Pi Day!

Last night I knew I was going to bake a blueberry pie for Pi Day (3.1415…). I brought it up to GamerDad and he said he would prefer a cake. I’m doing both.

At first I wanted to do Pi 3D. Once I printed out the template, I thought it would be crazy flimsy to try and do a two-layer cake. Thanks to a friend, I modified the idea and stuck with a 9on round on the bottom. She suggested just the rounds and making Pi out of fruit. Well, I cut out Pi from the second cake while front carrying Lil Miss in our Ergo carrier. Not an easy task.

The top photo is what I am dubbing “cake surgery.” The bottom is the successful transfer of Pi onto the round. I used two spatulas and a lot of slow determination.

The frosting is a simple cream cheese frosting: 1 brick of cream cheese, 1 stick of butter, a pour of vanilla, and about 3 cups of sifted powdered sugar. The first two ingredients I beat the heck out of. The sifting is the key to any frosting with powdered sugar unless you dig the lumpy look.

Next, I took Lil Miss’ favorite food (I know, I know BLW at 1 year, but she seriously screams for these), strawberries, and sliced them. Tada! Mosaic strawberry Pi!

Here is from earlier in the day when we all had lunch and there was screaming for food:

God Bless!!

*Edit* For those who have been waiting, Pi Pie! It is blueberry and smells delish!

It exploded a bit, which is why I included the pre-baked photo.

Enjoy!
