e^x isn’t so horrible… in fact it tastes good

DSC_3101.JPGI thought I would try to make some cupcakes this weekend since it was the weekend before classes started, but Josh and I are trying to eat healthy and so I decided not to… but then Josh said I could make some to give to his students.  He told me that he was joking around with his students last week when they were complaining about having to take the antiderivative of e^2x. They were saying “I hate e^x.” So, he responded, “Do I have to have my wife make you some e^x cupcakes?” So, here they are some tasty e^x cupcakes. Hopefully there will be no complaining about these e^xs, which were made out of blue, pink, and yellow vanilla candy melts. I piped the  e^xs and let them dry while I was making the cupcakes. I made 44 cupcakes – half German Chocolate and half Fudge Marble with my standard cream cheese icing. Here’s a look at some of the ones Josh will be taking to school tomorrow!

  12. Dear Mrs. Males,

    The cupcakes you made for Advanced Placement Calculus were truly scrumptious. The cake was very moist and had the perfect texture. The cream cheese frosting on top was the best frosting I have tasted in quite some time. The e^x was the perfect topper; although, I still do not understand it at all. Thank you very much.
