Mathematical Cake

This afternoon in the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences we had one of our occasional thematic cake events:

 

Mathematical-Cake

As you can see, today’s cakes were inspired by Rubik’s Cube. One reason for this choice is that we were thanking the former Head of Department of Mathematics, Miro Chlebik who stood down this summer, for his service in that role. The other is that we felt that a Mattematical theme (Geddit?) would be appropriate to mark the departure of one of our office staff, Matt Tiernan, who leaves us today for a job elsewhere in the University. I’ll just add a “goodbye” and “good luck” message to the heartfelt thanks offered by our School Administrator Oonagh in her speech this afternoon!

    I actually knew someone who could solve Rubik’s Cube in 15 seconds. For him, it was a piece of cake! 🙂
