Spherical Pie For Pi Day

Spherical pie for Pi Day.

It’s that time of year again: 3/14. Or, as some might say 3.14. Whatever Pi Day means to you, what better way to celebrate than with a spherical pie? Instructables user starshipminivan has it all mapped out for you:

This pie is the ultimate ode to Pi. A full sphere of crust filled with pudding gives you the perfect pi-inspired pie eating experience. The ratio of volume to surface area of a sphere is the highest possible for a closed shape. So a spherical pie creates the largest possible filling content relative to crust. It is the ultimate dessert experience for pi and pie lovers alike.

Or, get a hint directly from her blog, She Creates Stuff, and make you own. Here’s a calculator to jolt back that long-forgotten formula for the volume of a sphere.
