This Baker Creates Pietraits – Should We Eat Them or Hang Them on the Wall?

This Baker Creates Pietraits – Should We Eat Them or Hang Them on the Wall? –

 

 

Cake is an essential part of every celebration, but there is a pie expert who is challenging this old custom. Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin believes that pies can “go head-to-head against the poshest wedding cakes and fancy-pants desserts.” To prove it, she doesn’t limit herself to standard pie making, but instead turns it into art that seems like such a pity to eat.

Despite what people say, Halloween isn’t just for grownups 😜 So! When my 6 year old asked if we could make a special Halloween pie together and share it with you all on my channel, I figured I’d better say yes… even if the result is a bit different than what you are used to from me! Without further ado, I present to you “Cillian’s All-Flavor Monster Pie!” He’s really hoping you like it, and hovering over my shoulder waiting for me to read the comments to him 😂 ⠀ How many of you do holiday baking with kidlets? Do you enjoy the creative abandon, or get stressed out by the mess and destruction of property? 😝 Lemme know in the comments below what you bake with your little munchkin friends! ⠀ I’ll be posting some making of video in my stories soon in case you’d like to have a go at baking this Monster Pie with your monsters this Halloween! ⠀ #bakingwithkids #monsterpie #halloweenpie #monstercake #monstercookies #kidsbakingchampionship #monsterparty #piefun #ilovepie #thanksgiving

Happy Easter and Passover and Sunday everybody!! 💐💕 I’m so excited to share this, my first ever collab with my friend and constant inspiration @luxeandthelady (who’s real name is also Jessica!) We’ve been looking for a collab to do together for a while and with the Springy holidays coming up (and the #pieartanimalscollab happening now until May 12th) she suggested we tackle Disney’s Bambi. Check out her page this afternoon to see Bambi’s good buddy Thumper! 🐰 Jessica’s super Kawaii treats have always been a delight, but it’s her photo styling and sense of design that really blow my mind… I hope you love her work as much as I do! ⠀⠀ Now for me it’s time finish the last bit of tidying before the family arrives – we’re hosting Easter this year and as my son said “the Easter bunny is going to feel bad for coming here and dump all the eggs in the garbage if we don’t get the yard looking nicer” 😂 ⠀⠀ What are you baking this weekend? Any family traditions involving your own special treats? Share in the comments below! I love hearing about all the unique things people create for these big family holidays 😊💕 ⠀⠀ Oh! And before I forget – after your are done checking out Jessica’s fab Thumper pie – head over to my friend @coderxbaker who has just posted a gorgeous Bambi pie too! So much glorious Pie Art this year 🥰 Viva la Pie Art! ⠀⠀ #bambi #disneyfamily #easterpie #easterdessert #happyeaster #bambiandthumper #disneyfanart

My first Pusheen Pie! 😺💕🥧 I’ve been meaning to bake one for ages since my son and all his friends are such big fans of Pusheen… BUT! I have a dilemma. I first intended to only make the pie “dough color” (swipe to see the original version) but my son saw it and insisted I must paint it grey to be “proper”. So I obliged- I do like how the little “pie” she’s holding pops out with the grey, but my husband saw it and instinctively said “ugh! Concrete pie!” 😂 So! Help me out – which version do you think is the superior pie – grey, or plain dough color? ⠀⠀ And hey, while we’re at it, what other lovable cuddly characters do you think I should pie up next? 🤗 ⠀⠀ . #pusheen #pusheenthecat #pusheencake #pusheencat #pusheenparty #pusheenfan #pusheencookies #ilovepusheen #cakedecorating #cookiedecorating

Twilight in Paris… A lil’ throwback to one of my fave bakes from 2018. I’ll be back soon with a whole new wack of pies (“a wack” – is that the official collective noun for a group of pies? 😂) but I think I’ll revisit my “City Pieline” series concept at some point too. Heck, maybe we should do a big city pieline collab? What city would you like to see immortalized in pastry? Lemme know in the comments below and tag a buddy you’d like to travel there with! 🌉🕌⛩ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ #eatmorepie #citypielines #pielines #paris #pie #tarts #tartart #frenchcuisine #foodart #france #iloveparis #weloveparis #pastry #pastrychef #pastryart #pastryarts #pastrylife #pastrypassion #pastry_inspiration #pastrylove #pastrycheflife #frenchpastry

You know nothing Jon Dough… I mean Snow… 😜❄️ ⠀⠀ I’m so excited to be doing another Pie Art collab with the incredibly talented Liz Joy of @inspiredtotaste – and of course we just had to do something Game of Thrones related what with the final season premiere just a week away… So tell me, are you a Jon/Dany shipper? Or is it “Jon & Ygritte 4eva” for you? 💘 Head on over to Liz’s profile to check out our pick for the ideal match for young Jon… ⠀⠀ This pie is blueberry with black sanding sugar and little crow “pie dough cookies”, also covered in black sanding sugar. I had a lot of fun making (and eating!) this one – the crows were fun to dip into the filling like little sparkly nachos. 😜 ⠀⠀ Now the real question… Who’s your favorite character on the show, and who do you think will be left standing at the end? (I’m guessing probably just HotPie and a couple of chickens walking around 😂) ⠀⠀ #pie #pieart #GRRM #kitharington #kitharrington #blueberrypie #gameofthrones #gameofthronesmemes #crows #got #gotfanart #goth #medieval #cakedecorating #pastryart #foodart #georgerrmartin #jonsnow #youknownothingjonsnow #winteriscoming #pietrait #pietraits #cookiedecorating #hbo #forthethrone #pietraits

“I’m not the pie they think I am at home, oh no no no, I’m a rocket flannnn!” 💫 A few days ago I posted a poll asking which musician/album cover you’d like me to create in pie form… well the votes are in, and overwhelmingly the top choice was the Rocketman himself, Sir Elton John! ✨🚀✨ ⠀⠀ Since it is Pride month, I decided to go for one of his more rainbow-y costumes… and I couldn’t help but add a few (thousand) extra edible sequins and sparkles and luster dust and sanding sugar… I think this may just be my most blinged up pie to date! And the sanding sugar creates a gorgeous brûlée crunch layer on top… I hope you like it! ❤️🧡💛💚💙 ⠀⠀ My favorite Elton John song is “Madman Across the Water”, what’s yours? And what band or musician do you think I should “pie up” next? Happy Pride! ⠀⠀ #pride🌈 #pride #pridemonth #happypride #pie #eltonjohn #rocketman #rocketmanmovie #sireltonjohn #pietrait #pietraits #applepie #flatlaytoday #sparkles #glitter #tastemademedoit #tastemade #cupcakeproject #pietraitchallenge

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! In honor of the day, I’ve baked a colourful rendition of one of my favorite stories – The Lorax. 🌿🌼🧡 This is an apple pie, but I’ve segregated sections of tinted filing under the surface so the truffula trees pop with their own vibrant colour. It’s a super fun technique – let me know if you’d like me to post the video! ⠀⠀ I sometimes find that color in fillings can give off a teensy bitter taste, but this time around @gosupernatural was kind enough to send me some samples of their all-natural food dyes to try out, and I must say I am a big fan! Very bright and no discernible taste in the filling. I added some sanding sugar on top for a bit of extra sparkle and sweetness and I’m pleased with how the two elements work together. I’m keen to experiment more with them in the future. 😊💜❤️💛 ⠀⠀ Do you have a favorite Dr Seuss book? 📚 At his best, he taught us to have faith in ourselves while respecting others and the environment- whacky concepts at the time! And something I hope he’ll always be remembered for 😊✨ ⠀⠀ #drseuss #thelorax #theloraxmovie #naturalfood #naturalfoodcoloring #drseussweek #drseussday #drseussbirthday #drseussparty #lorax #drseusscookies #drseusscake #favoritebook #favoritebooks #books #kidsbooks #childrensbookillustration #childrensliterature #kidsbookstagram #instagram #cakedecorating #cake #cookies #cookiesofinstagram #sparkles #truffulatrees

Say hello to Chocolate Cherry Pie-kachu (Christmas version)! ⚡️🎅🍒🍫🥧 ⠀ This pie was a request from follower @craftingkindness – thank you so much for your “Santa Pikachu” suggestion! I’ll DM you shortly and will be sending you a copy of my pie decorating book Pie Modding plus one of my Pie Guides! ⠀ Tomorrow I’ll be posting a video tutorial in my stories to show you exactly how you can make one of these yourself – the figure on top is coated on the back in chocolate, and the base pie under the cherry filling has a yummy layer of chocolate as well! Pie dough “standees” (as I call them) like Pikachu here are a deceptively simple technique that add a big impact on the buffet table – and are surprisingly stable! ⠀ So! What do you want to see next? Follow me and leave a comment below with the holiday-themed pie you’d like to see me make next and if I pick your suggestion I’ll send you a copy of Pie-Modding too 😊 (duplicate suggestions will be decided by random draw.) 🎄🤔☃️ ⠀ #pikachu #pokemon #pikachuart #pokemonfan #pokemonfanart #pokemonparty #pokemoncake #holidaybaking #cherrypie #chocolatepie #cake #cookies #cookiedecorating #cakedecorating #christmaspie #holidaypie #chocolatecherry #santa #santahat #christmascookies #christmascake #cakestand #shiplap #jinglebells

Heeeere’s Jasmine! 🌸 The pie request I receive the most, hands down, is the Disney Princesses… 👑💕🥧 So here we go! Kickin’ things off with a lil’ Princess Jasmine action. Who is your favorite Princess? (And yes, Leia is a princess 🚀.) Tag a friend who digs the princesses and tell me who I should do next! (I’m open to villains and animal sidekicks too 😊) ……… #🥧>∞ #piesareawesome #piestagram #pastryart #thepieous #ilovepie #disneyprincesscake #disneyprincessart #disneyprincess #pieart #yeahbutwhatdoesitlooklikebaked #abmlifeissweet #imsomartha #undiscoveredbaker #f52gram @thefeedfeed @thecupcakeproject @buzzfeedfood @tastemade @thebakefeed #thebakefeed #buzzfeast #gloobyfood #bakemag #bhgfood #bakeandshare #princessjasmine #food52 #huffposttaste #piemaker

At last the Mushroom Kingdom has its revenge! 🍄 Toad is taking matters into his own hands and will make short work of this Bowser cherry pie… 🍒🥧 ⠀ I thought this was a fitting pie given that Doug Bowser was just named president of Nintendo America 😜 ⠀⠀ We’re definitely a “Switch” family and I really love playing Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle with my son… digging the new direction Nintendo is going with these crossover titles! ⠀⠀ What’s your favorite Nintendo character/game? Let me know in the comments below! And let me know if you’d like me to post the making-of video for this pie too 😊 ⠀⠀ #nintendo #toadstool #mushroomkingdom #bowser #koopa #nintendoswitch #supermario #supermariobros #cherrypie #videogames #supernintendo #retrogaming #fanart #familybaking #marioparty #cakedecorating #cookiedecorating #piecrust #piesofinstagram #eatmorepie #ilovepie

Presenting the first of my “Follower’s Choice” Christmas pies – it’s the Muppets! In festive holiday garb, as requested by @jennybear_gp. Thank you for the great pie suggestion! I’ll DM you shortly to get your snail mail address and will be sending you a copy of my pie decorating book “Pie Modding” as a thank you 😊 ⠀ I grew up loving the Muppets (all Jim Henson properties really) and they’ve always had a special place in my heart… I’ve had the John Denver Muppets Christmas album on repeat pretty much since Dec 1st 😂 So I was really happy someone suggested a Muppet-themed pie. Anyone else big Jim Henson fans out there? Who are your favorite characters? ⠀ Don’t feel bad if I didn’t pick your suggestion this week! Next week I’ll be selecting a new “follower’s choice” suggestion, and that person will also get to see their pick in pie form, get a shoutout on my account, and a copy of Pie Modding too! All you have to do to be in the running is follow me and leave your suggestion for a festive holiday pie (subject matter and flavor) that you would like to see below! (I’m doing a random draw when there are multiple suggestions for the same thing.) ⠀ Can’t wait to see what you suggest next! 😊🎄💕 ⠀ #themuppets #misspiggy #kermit #kermitandpiggy #jimhenson #themuppetschristmas #pies #pieart #welovepieart #holidaybaking #christmaspies #piecrust #crustart #pierevival #tart #tartart #bhgbaking #pastry #desserts #tastemademedoit #gloobyfood #thrillist #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #eater #cupcakeproject #cookieart #cakeart #themuppetschristmascarol

It’s the final day to enter my April giveaway by tagging two friends below – the drawing is tomorrow for two copies of my epic pie decorating book and a full set of pie guides! (May giveaway announcement soon 😊) The number one Harry Potter pie suggestion I got from you guys was a “quad flavour crest pie” – well you asked for it and you got it! Check out the full behind the scenes video clips for this pie in my featured stories. If you’d like to try a multi-flavour divided pie, it’s easy! Just make sure you choose fillings with the same bake time, or fill parts of your crust with pieweights on parchment. Mine is Peach 🍑 for Hufflepuff, Cherry 🍒 for Gryffindor (my house!), Matcha apple 🍏 for Slytherin, and Blueberry 💙 for Ravenclaw. Which side would you take a slice of first? . #🥧>∞ #pieart #piesareawesome #piestagram . #crustart #pastryart #ilovepie #pierevival #dividedpie #pielove #pieoneer #pastrylove #foodartist #thepieous #pie #piecrust #baking #instabake #piday #harrypotter #harrypotterworld #peachpie #applepie #cherrypie #blueberrypie #hogwartscrest #hogwarts

Undah dah seeeee!!! 🎶🦀🧜‍♀️🐠 I know a lot of you have been waiting a long time for this one… It’s Peach Ariel Pie! I suppose I could have chosen a more aquatic-themed flavor for a Little Mermaid fan art pie. Then again, there aren’t a lot of sweet things in the ocean, are there? (Is “sea fruit” a thing? It should be a thing! 😂) Anyhoo – thank you for coming along on my Disney Princess fan art journey this month… and thanks for all your votes! There’s only one princess pie to come before I switch into full on Pumpkin Spice Halloween mode… so tag your princess-lovin’ buddies and let me know who you just have to see in that final slot! 😊🥧💕👑 ……. #piepics #edibleart #foodfun #piegoals #thesugarfiles #hautecusines #bakedgoods #baker #psimadethis #desserttime #art #artfood #fooddesign #playwithyourfood #dessert #eatmorepie #magical #beautiful #beautifulfood #foodart #ariel #disney #disneyprincesses #thelittlemermaid #cherrypie #yummy #peachpie #cookies #cake #thanksgiving

It was a toss up between blueberry or apple spice for this Princess Merida fan art Pie… she eats apples a lot in the film, but she also serves her mum a magical blueberry tart. In the end, 🍏 won out because that’s what I felt like eating for breakfast! 😜 Thank you for voting for your favorite Disney princesses this month! My series of fan art pies is complete (for now) and these were the top 6 princesses as voted by you: Jasmine, Mulan, Tiana, Belle, Ariel and Merida! 😍👑💕 Rapunzel, Moana, and Pocahontas got a fair number of votes too but they never quite made the cut… No one voted for Elsa at all! 😳 Shocking! Maybe I’ll do her for Christmas anyway… So, now it’s time to move into the realm of the spooktacular! 👻🎃🍁 What do you want to see? Gore and guts? Classic movie monsters? Kid-friendly pie pops? All Tim Burton, all the time? Let me know in the comments below what I just gotta bake this October and tag a friend who’s into the spooky stuff too! 🧡 … #piepics #edibleart #foodfun #piegoals #thesugarfiles #hautecusines #bakedgoods #baker #psimadethis #desserttime #art #artfood #fooddesign #playwithyourfood #dessert #eatmorepie #magical #beautiful #beautifulfood #foodart #merida #disney #disneyprincesses #brave #applepie #pieart #halloweenpie #cookies #cake #thanksgiving

Would you like to see more Disney princess fan art pies from me? 🌸💐🌷 I woke up inspired to make this Snow White gooseberry apple pie – Spring has finally sprung in Vancouver and the little birds are chirping up a storm! I went out into the yard and saw dozens of cute little fat birds in the trees – I don’t know what they are called but they look like tiny spheres with bright eyes. I want to squish them 😜 Anyhoo, it brought to mind the scene with Snow White baking her gooseberry pie for Grumpy with all the little (unsanitary) animals helping. 😂 I hope you like it! Now the most important question – who is *your* favorite Disney princess (and animal sidekick!) Tag a friend who’s into Disney! . #fanart #🥧>∞ #pieart #piesareawesome #piestagram . #crustart #pastryart #ilovepie #pierevival #pielove #pieoneer #pastrylove #foodartist #thepieous #pie #piecrust #baking #instabake #beautifulcuisines #piday #wilton #disneypie #disneyprincess #disneyprincessart #disneyfood #snowwhite #princesscake #disneyfan #disney #buzzfeedfood

“Yer a Pie Harry!” 🥧🧙‍♀️⚡️Or maybe “The Boy who Lived… to Pie Another Day” 😜 And with that, the holy HP trinity is complete and I can move on to YOUR suggestions for Harry Potter inspired pies! Man, it is going to be sooo tough to choose – you’ve given me so many amazing suggestions already. So far out of your requests I’m leaning towards Luna, Hargrid with a baby dragon, a mandrake root tart, Dobby with socks, or a four flavor divided pie of the Hogwarts crest. What do you vote for? Don’t forget to tag two pie-lovin’ friends to enter my April giveaway! Have a fab day! . #🥧>∞ #pieart #piesareawesome #piestagram . #crustart #pastryart #ilovepie #pierevival #pielove #pieoneer #pastrylove #foodartist #thepieous #pie #piecrust #baking #instabake #piday #harrypotterpie #harrypotterfood #harrypotter #harrypotterfanart #blueberrypie

A little Nightmare Before Christmas fan art (in cherry pie form) to brighten your morning! 💀🎃🥧💕 Not only is N.B.C. my favorite Halloween movie, it’s in the running for my favorite movie of all time… the characters, art direction, lighting, animation, songs… and the story! All so original, and magical, and disturbing. Many brilliant people dumped their brains and souls out to bring this film to life, and of course the Tim Burton aesthetic presides over all. But enough about my love of the film – how about you? Where my Nightmare Before Christmas fans at? Tag a friend who loves NBC and Burton and let me know what your favorite part of the film is in the comments below! #nightmarebeforechristmas #jackandsally #jackskellington #cake #sallynightmarebeforechristmas #halloweenpie #nightmarebeforechristmascake #baroque #baroquestyle #thanksgivingdinner #halloweentreats #tastemademedoit #desserttable #weddingpie #timburton #timburtonfan #checkerboard #sepia #pumpkinspice #woodenspoon #cakeart #cookieart #fanart
