Why I Needed Maple to Make Cream Cheese Frosting
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=125069&ref=Feed
<p>A recipe for cream cheese frosting I was making called for 8 oz. (about 240 grams) of cream cheese. Unfortunately, I didn't have a kitchen scale, and the product I bought came in a 400 gram tub in the shape of a<strong> truncated cone</strong>, which has a rather cumbersome volume formula. <br />Given the geometry of this tub, how deep into the tub should I scoop to get 240 grams? The mathematics is trickier than you might think but lots of fun! And the final, tasty result is worth the effort!</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=125069/philly_thumb.png" alt="Why I Needed Maple to Make Cream Cheese Frosting" align="left"/><p>A recipe for cream cheese frosting I was making called for 8 oz.
