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!

@lunchboxdad @thepieous that’s so cool. I bet it’s super awesome. By the way I made my first decorated pie-and used your tips!!! It really helped. 👍🏻

@lokokitchen So ornate!!

Who wants a slice of my Cranberry Walnut Nutcracker pie!  The cranberries explode in your mouth like little tart balls of awesome, and nicely compliment the brown sugar and crushed walnut trim. The background of the pie is a cinnamon stencil that I designed in Illustrator. Let me know if you’d like me to post making of video clips!
⠀
The first “follower’s choice” pie will be posted in two days - but first I had to post this “6 year old son’s choice” pie to keep the peace  He’s just learned what Nutcrackers are and thinks they are pretty awesome... they’ve been featuring prominently as the villain character in his Lego Christmas village play sessions.
⠀
There’s still plenty of time to get your Holiday-Themed pie suggestions in! I’ll be picking one winner each week to have their pie made, get a shoutout, and a copy of my book Pie Modding! (when folks suggest the same pie I do a random draw from those names). Let me know in the comments below what you want to see next from me - flavor and subject matter!

@lunchboxdad Super neat! I would love “The Christmas Story” pie.

Introducing my Beatrix Potter-inspired savory Mac n Cheese pie! 🧀
⠀
I’ve received sooo many requests over the past few months to “do a savory pie”... and I haven’t done it yet because I have such a mega sweet tooth.  But! I saw a photo of @katemcdermott ‘s baked mac and cheese dish from her new cookbook (“Homecooking with Kate McDermott” - awesome book, check it out) and that looked so delicious, it inspired me to create my own twist on a mac and cheese pie (with bacon because bacon is awesome.) 🥓🧀
⠀
I experimented with an egg and vodka crust on this one, and used vodka to mix the paint instead of vanilla extract. Still took the detail great - the only difference was that the extra egg in the crust meant I had to paint with a dry brush to prevent feathering. Bit more labor intensive, but I’m happy with the final look... and taste! This one was definitely a big hit with my family and I foresee more savory pies in our future... ⠀
What do you think? Do you have a favorite savory pie you’d like to see me tackle? If so let me know in the comments below and tag a friend who’s into mac and cheese! ⠀

Happy Turkey Day Americans!! 🦃🥧 Today (and every day) I am thankful that I actually get to make Pie Art for a living... that I get to experiment with kooky new science and art techniques, pay homage to my favorite pop culture things, meet all you incredible people, and work with super cool clients like the Turner Network @tntdrama who commissioned this “Sam and Dean” Supernatural pie for Thanksgiving. Seriously, how is this my job??! 🤗
⠀
Canadian Thanksgiving is in October, but I have many friends and family living in the states- so a holiday shout out to my North Carolina clan, and to all my buddies in California! I am very thankful for each and everyone of you, and I hope you have a safe and joy-filled holiday 
⠀
I’m also thankful for all the amazing pie artists (and future pie artists) I’ve had the privilege to meet here on Instagram  I’ve been blown away by all your incredible submissions to the #WeLovePieArt contest (you’ve got until midnight on the 22nd to post your pics by the way!) and I’m so happy to be a part of such a vibrant, kind, giving (and growing) community!

Happy 90th Birthday to Mickey Mouse!  I created this fan art tribute - my first ever animated pie - in honor of both Mickey‘s big day, and the awesome Instagram Seasonal Collab #YesYouCranberry , spearheaded by the talented @squaremealroundtable and @whatannieiseating! Thank you so much for inviting me to participate - I can’t wait to see everyone else’s tart and tasty creations! Check out the hashtag to see them too 
⠀
I won’t lie, this pie had a steep learning curve for me... one of my friends challenged me months ago to do an animated pie and I was humming and hawing because I knew it would be a pain in the butt  But! This seemed like the perfect opportunity to try it out... I created 8 different pie dough Mickeys and photographed them in a sequence on top of my cranberry cherry base pie. It took waaaay longer than I thought it would, but I learned a ton doing it, and could do it much faster the next time... Though I think “next time” for pie animation will be a bit father off in the future for me  ⠀
Anyhoo, let me know in the comments below what you think, and tag a friend who’s into animation and Disney! And remember you’ve still got three days left to enter to win my mega Pie Art prize pack giveaway! Full contest details on the post with the gift basket.

@lunchboxdad This is so creative! Wow! 🙌🏻

Stan the Man.

When I was 7 or 8 I had a book called “How to Draw Comics The Marvel Way”, and man, that thing was my bible. I spent hours pouring over its pages and sketching - in particular the page that showed “the proper proportions for men and women” (problematic in today’s world, but at the time I took it as gospel .) As I got older I moved away from Marvel and DC a bit as Vertigo, Dark Horse,  Image, IDW, SLG, and a zillion other publishers illuminated my teenage brain... but I’ll always come back to that one Marvel book. The one that kicked off my life long love affair with the world of comics.
⠀
I met Stan Lee at SanDiego Comic Con years ago - he was so sweet. He signed my notebook  In subsequent years I would spot him in the crowd and he always had a smile on his face. Any panel he was on he was always so excited and enthusiastic about whatever they were talking about. Whatever else you can say about the man, it was clear he genuinely loved comics, and his fans. ⠀
Like everyone else, I’ve enjoyed his cameos in the Marvel movies, and have passed on that love to my son... who would embarrass the crap out of me by pointing and shouting “Stan Lee!!!” at any white haired man in sunglasses we would pass on the street  But I guess he won’t be doing that anymore... ️
⠀
This pie is my humble tribute to the man, who along with Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko brought so many things that I love into this world... I hope he would have liked it. Excelsior Mr. Lee. And thank you.

Introducing the Patchwork Pattern Pie! 🥧 A little rustic fun for your holiday baking... and really easy to do too!
⠀
 I recently got a new set of food safe stencils and I’ve had this idea kicking around in my head ever since I made the patterned nesting doll pie pops back in the Summer. I figured with the holidays coming up, it was time to bake it. I think this type of patchwork stenciled pie would be a great fit for Thanksgiving or Christmas with a little holly or acorns at the bottom - what do you think? All you have to do is trace your pie pan on your dough, cut out your pieces, stencil on some cinnamon or cocoa using egg white as your glue, and then reassemble on your unbaked base pie. It would even work over a mile high fruit pie! Adding the stitches is a bit fiddly but you could always make them larger and not add so many... or do it after bake with piped on chocolate! Oooh, speaking of chocolate, wouldn’t it look cool to do a patchwork pie with chocolate dough and use gold or silver luster dust through the stencil instead? Or maybe a mix of both! I may have to try that for Christmas 
⠀
Let me know if you’d like me to post some how to video for this style of pie, and tag me if you make a patchwork pie this holiday! I’ll add you to my Pie Art prize pack giveaway... ⠀

@lunchboxdad Such a beautiful pie!

Happy Diwali to one and all! Diwali is a Festival of Lights symbolizing the “victory of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.” It’s a time for spreading light and joy with friends and family through brilliant decorations, fireworks, and of course, sweets! Vancouver being the multicultural city that it is has always had Diwali festivities near our house that are open to all regardless of religious affiliation, and my family has always enjoyed the lights displays. So today I wanted to honor the tradition with a mango coconut pie - traditional flavors in a non-traditional dish! To my friends who observe the holiday, and to those of you who just need a pick-me-up and reminder of the light still in the world, I wish you a very happy Diwali. Or happy Wednesday. We can all be the light in the world.

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!

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!

@lunchboxdad This is my new favorite pie! Not only because cherry is my favorite but because we are such huge fans of the movie in our house!

We’re goin’ for Baroque on this one... (ha! I’m pretty proud of that ) Using a series of food safe silicon molds and my new extremely sharp and thin Pen Blade, I wanted to experiment and see just how much tiny detail I could coax out of pie pastry. I’m pretty happy with the result... I kept it monochromatic so we could see the textures and sculptural bits and bobs more clearly. I think it’s a cool technique for folks who aren’t too sure about color on their pies but still want to “bring the bling” to their holiday potlucks this year. The nice thing about using the molds to create dough appliqués is that absolutely anyone can do it and you’ll get a super classy result every time. Spooky but classy.  What do you think? Would you have a go at using a fondant/gumpaste mold to decorate your pies? I have a tutorial on the @wiltoncakes page showing exactly how to do it if you’d like to try! 
⠀
Now! What shall I make next? Tag a friend who’s into the spooky stuff and you guys tell me! I promise I’ll pick one of your suggestions for the next one. 🤗🥧
⠀
Edit: for those asking, the shading is done with @wiltoncakes brown gel food color mixed with vanilla extract, applied with Wilton food safe brushes, the appliqués are made in Wilton gumpaste molds & other molds from Amazon, and the shapes are cut out using a #15 @penblade.

I love “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”  but every time I watch it, I feel bad for pretty much everyone involved...  So! To make myself feel better, I’ve reimagined the scene with Sally and Linus in the pumpkin patch as a charming moment between two friends, with Sally cozied up in Linus’ blanket, and not the emotionally scarring downer it really is. ⠀

@lunchboxdad Such a sweet pie!

It’s a Spooktacular Collab-o-Rama! Presenting one of my most requested pies by ya’ll: Maleficent! I did the Jolie-version - if you love her, great! And if you don’t... well, you get to chop her up and eat her!  (FYI, she’s got maple syrup painted on for that patent leather look. Swipe for process pics, and products used tagged in image.) The brilliant @inspiredtotaste asked if I would take part in a Disney Villain Pie collab with her, and I had so much fun with our FairyTale Pie collab a few months back, of course I said “heck yes!” Head over to her profile now to see which epic Disney baddie she’s pie-d up for us! (Pst! I know who it is but I won’t tell - you’ll have to see for yourself )
⠀
AND if that wasn’t fun enough, we’ve got a double-whammy happening on the collab front with the #VirtualDisneyHalloweenParty ! Have a boo at all the Disney holiday goodness happening this month at the hashtag. 🧡
⠀
Now... who should I do next for my Haunted Pie-lloween series? And who has a better pun than “pie-lloween”?
