Pi Day is coming – are YOU ready?

Sharing is caring!

I’ve been so caught up in this whole winning the Czar of Cakes business, I was actually sort of caught off guard the other day. Someone had messaged me to say that Think Geek had blogged about our crazy Pi Kitchen Backsplash again.

Oh crap, that’s right – Pi day is less than a week away! (March 14 – 3/14!)

Luckily, I have a few extra days to prepare. With Pi Day falling on a Wednesday this year, we’ll actually be celebrating “St Pi-trick’s Day” next Saturday. It’ll be an interesting mix of math and Irish decor, pies, Pi-napple punch, and … corned beef.

Given the INSANE response to our Pi backsplash – Thinkgeek tweeting and blogging it (2x on the blog), thousands of “likes” / hundreds of shares on Facebook, “Make” Magazine and PC World blogging about it, just shy of 10,000 hits our blog tutorial for it in ONE MONTH… I’m thinking it’s about time for Pi Day to become more of a “thing”. Let’s make it more mainstream!

Pi day is a lot of fun, and there are SO many different things you can do to celebrate. No worries, the following suggestions are all far less expensive and labor-intensive than the pi backsplash!:

First off, to not re-invent the wheel, check out our 2010 Pi Day Primer for a good foundation. Pi-kus, toasts to Einstein, Pie Potluck, trivia… there’s a LOT there!

While tornado repairs have left us with neither the time nor space to do it this year, consider the traditional “pi-nata” – we posted a Pi Day Pinata Tutorial Gluten Free Tourtiere
