Use Code to Bake a Perfect “Pi” this Pi Day!

Do you know why March 14 is known as Pi Day? If you paid attention in math class, you do! Since the first few digits of the mathematical constant pi (π) are 3.14, we celebrate math (and pie) on 3/14. This Pi Day, you can celebrate by baking and frosting a virtual pie in the shape of the pi symbol! Can you figure out how to bake a different kind of pie or add an ice cream layer using code?
