This is what happens when a math teacher accidentally melts too much chocolate and then remembers that she owns a silicone tray that makes pi-symbol ice cubes. Not quite as geeky as the cake my sister made the other day (she constructed a three-dimensional replica of the Starship Enterprise out of marshmallows and fondant for my nephew’s birthday), but nerdy enough for my purposes.
I’m thinking of using the Wilton candy book’s recipe for “sparkle jells” to make some pi-shaped candy for my Algebra I kids. We’ll see how that goes. It’s pretty hard to screw up Jell-O….
