This year marks the 30th anniversary of Pi Day, observed annually on March 14 (3.14). The rise of computing technology has led to an arms race of sorts to calculate ever more digits of pi: the current record was set past year by Christian physicist Peter Trueb, calculated pi to 22.4 trillion digits - 22,459,157,718,361, to be exact - outpacing the previous record set in 2013 by 9 million digits.
"As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern". Pi, which is quite popular among students around the world as it represents the ratio of the circumference of any circle to its diameter. The doodle has been baked and built by award-winning pastry chef and creator of the Cronut, Dominique Ansel. He went on to create a caramel apple pie which according to him, it is one of the most classic forms of apple pies, therefore symbolising the mathematical constant pi which like an apple pie remains a constant favourite among the people.

Pi's existence was recorded as early as nearly 4,000 years ago. It features math problems for calculating Martian earthquakes, helium rain on Jupiter and the rotation rate of the asteroid 'Oumuamua.
