When Physicist's fall in love. Maths geekcake

On my previous post (Monday of this week) I showcased a marvellous graph geekcake.

Today I'd like to share with you a jaw droppingly cute wedding geekcake. Originally featured over at Symmetry magazine. Symmetrymagazine.org Symmetry is an online, and paper magazine about particle physics and its connections to other aspects of life and science, from interdisciplinary collaborations to policy to culture.

Jason Rieger married Leah Welty, in August of 2004. Below is a picture of their cake.

Unfortunately I don't know physics from a poke in the eye so I have no idea what the equations relate to.

See you on Friday!

Graphs + cake = brilliant geekcakes!

A bashful woman called Jennifer Harris sent me an email which read thus:

I thought I'd send you some pics of a geeky cake I did for my college's Economics Liaison bake sale. Every year when the Simmons College Economics Liaison has a bake sale they like to have a supply and demand graph cake. This is the cake from the year. I headed up the bake sale. It's not as fancy as some of the cakes you've featured on your blog, but it will certainly supply anyone's demand for cake!

I wonder what quantities P and Q represent?

I would just like to say that I think Jennifer's geekcake is fantastic. The passion and creativity and geek charm of a cake's topic, are just as important as the finished product.

Jennifer I salute you and your most delicious looking cake!

See you all on Wednesday.
