PART 1
INTRODUCTION
Baking a cake offers a tasty way to practice math skills, such as fractions and ratios,
in a real-world context. Many steps of baking a cake, such as counting ingredients and setting
the oven timer, provide basic math practise for young children. Older children and teenagers
can use more sophisticated math to solve baking dilemmas, such as how to make a cake
recipe larger or smaller or how to determine what size slices you should cut. Practicing math
while baking not only improves your math skills, it helps you become a more flexible and
resourceful baker.
MATHEMATICS IN CAKE BAKING AND CAKE DECORATING
i. GEOMETRY
Geometry is used to determine suitable dimensions for the cake, to assist in designing
and decorating cakes that comes in many attractive shapes and designs and to estimate
volume of cake to be produced.
To determine suitable dimension for the cake, to assist in designing and decorating
cakes that comes in many attractive shapes and designs, to estimate volume of cake to be
produced. When making a batch of cake batter, you end up with a certain volume determined
by the recipe. The baker must then choose the appropriate size and shape of pan to achieve
the desired result. If the pan is too big, the cake becomes too short. If the pan is too small, the
cake becomes too tall. This leads into the next situations.
The ratio of the surface area to the volumes determines how much crust a baked good
will have. The more surface area there is, compared to the volume, the faster the item will
bake, and the less ³inside´ there will be. For a very large, thick item, it will take a long time
for the heat to penetrate to the centre. To avoid having a rock-hard outside in this case, the
baker will have to lower the temperature a little bit and bake for a longer time.
We mix ingredients in round bowls because cubes would have corners where unmixed
ingredient would accumulate, and we would have a hard time scraping them into the batter.

ii. Calculus (differentiation)
Calculus is used to determine minimum or maximum amount of ingredients for cake-
baking, cream needed for decorating, or size of cake produced. Calculus can also be used to
measure how high the temperature/time of the oven should be set so that the cake is baked
effectively.

iii. Progressions
To determine total weight/volume of multi-storey cakes with proportional
dimensions, to estimate total ingredients needed for cake-baking, to estimate total amount of
cream for decoration.
For example, when we make a cake with many layers, we must fix the difference of
diameter of the two layers. So we can say that it used arithmetic progression. When the
diameter of the first layer of the cake is 8¶¶ and the diameter of second layer of the cake is
6¶¶, then the diameter of the third layer should be 4¶¶.
In this case, we use arithmetic progression where the difference of the diameter is
constant that is 2. When the diameter decreases, the weight also decreases. That is the way
how the cake is balance to prevent it from smooch. We can also use ratio, because when we
prepare the ingredient for each layer of the cake, we need to decrease its ratio from lower
layer to upper layer. When we cut the cake, we can use fraction to divide the cake according
to the total people that will eat the cake.

Part 2
Best Bakery shop received an order from your school to bake a 5kg of round cake as shown
in Diagram 1 for the Teachers¶ Day celebration.

1) If a kilogram of cake has a volume of 38000cm3, and the height of the cake is to be 7.0
cm, the diameter of the baking tray to be used to fit the 5 kg cake ordered by your school
3800 is

3) The cake with fresh cream, with uniform thickness 1cm is decorated.
a) The amount of fresh cream needed to decorated the cake, using the dimensions I¶ve
suggested in 2(b)(ii).
My answer in 2(b)(ii) ՜ ݄ = 8cm, ݀ = 54.99cm
Amount of fresh cream = volume of fresh cream needed (area ൈ height)
Amount of fresh cream = volume of cream at the top surface + volume of cream at the
side surface.
The bottom surface area of cake is not counted, because we¶re decorating the visible
part of the cake only (top and sides). Obviously, we don¶t decorate the bottom part of
the cake.

Therefore, amount of fresh cream = 2375 + 1382.23 = 3757.23 ࢉ࢓

PART 3
When there¶s ̶minimum̶ or ̶maximum̶, well, there are differentiation and quadratic
functions. The minimum height, ݄ and its corresponding minimum diameter, ݀ is calculated
by using the differentiation and function.

METHOD 1 : DIFFERENTIATION
Two equations for this method: the formula for volume of cake ( as in 2(a)), and the formula
for amount ( volume ) of cream to be used for the round cake ( as in 3(a)).

I would choose not to bake a cake with such dimensions because its dimensions are not

CONCLUSION
Geometry is the study of angles and triangles, perimeter, area and volume.It differs
from algebra in that one develops a logical structure where mathematical relationships
are proved and applied.

An arithmetic progression (AP) or arithmetic sequence is a sequence of numbers such
that the different of any two successive members of the sequence is a constant.

A geometric progression,also known as a geometric sequence,is a sequence of
numbers where each term after the first is found by multiplying the previous one by a
fixed non-zero number called the common ratio.

Differentiation is essentially the process of finding an equation which will give you
the gradient (slope,´rise over run´, etc.) at any point along the curve.Say you have y =

2
.The equation y¶ = 2x will give you the gradient of y at any point along that curve.

REFLECTION
In the process of conducting this project, I have learnt that perseverance pays off,
especially when you obtain a just reward for all your hard work. For me, succeeding in completing
this project work has been reward enough. I have also learnt that mathematics is used
everywhere in daily life, from the most simple things like baking and decorating a cake, to designing
and building monuments. Besides that, I have learned many moral values that I practice.
This project work had taught me to be more confident when doing something especially the homework
given by the teacher. I also learned to be a more disciplined student who is punctual and independent.
