Gotta Get Down on Pi Day... With Cheesecake?

No matter how many digits of pie you know, this sweet treat will round out your day.

For the sake of simplicity, let's just call it a cheese pie. The popular cheesecake bakers at 7ate9 Bakery went the extra mile to celebrate Pi Day with these hand-piped mathematically constant cakes, which they sold over the weekend out of their Somerville shop, and are delivering to customers all diameter-day-long.

Apparently, one fan of both the ratio and the sweet rounds noticed a slight error on one cake. The vigilant owners were quick to fix their homemade stencil and solve the repeating problem. Hey 7ate9, we'll happily eat that one. You can't be blamed, it's an irrational number! And we still think your cheesecakes are transcendental.

Sadly, the window to get a celebratory circumference-cake has closed. If you missed out, you'll just have to wait aROUND till Pi day next year.
