Happy Pi Day one and all! And happy #PieArtFantasy day too! 🧜‍️🧚‍️ Today is the last day for the open Fantasy Pie Art collab and I’m so excited to check out everyone’s gorgeous and delicious creations... (hopefully Instagram will actually let me comment on them all today ) I’ll be doing the draw for the set of beautiful Roxy & Rich edible luster dusts courtesy of @KitchenJukeboxInsider tomorrow night, so you’ve still got plenty of time to tag your fantasy pies and get in the running.
⠀⠀ In the meantime, I’m off to spend the whole day oogling all *your* brilliant pies! Thank you all for coming along with me on this wacky Pie Art journey and for being so kind and supportive... Nothing puts a smile on my face like the messages and photos you send me of your own Pie Art and knowing you appreciate my videos and stories and tutorials and stuff  It’s definitely an unusual life-calling, but I wouldn’t trade it (and all of you) for the world!

If you’d like a little power-packed fandom with your pie this Pi Day (March 14th - 3.14) how about this Captain Marvel apple pie with sanding sugar brûlée topping? 
⠀⠀
I’ll post some video showing how to make her tomorrow in my stories - In a nutshell, her face is made with a food safe acetate stencil and cinnamon, and the rest with hand cut bits of pie dough. The filling is finely diced apple, tinted with yellow and orange natural food colors and dusted with sanding sugar that I then hit with a blow torch to make it extra sparkly!
⠀⠀
I just saw the movie and I loved it - no spoilers but my favorite character was Goose   The post credit scene was great too... Who’s seen it? What was your favorite part? Who’s just dying for Avengers: Endgame now? (Me me me me!!)  ⠀⠀

@christinehmcconnell So mind blowing! ❤️😍❤️

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

@harleysfood_art Absolutely incredible @thepieous 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

St Patrick’s Day is coming up soon, so I thought it would be fun to do a little throwback to one of my favorite Irish-y vibed pies! 🧚‍️️ This little fairy is inspired by one of my biggest inspirations: the artist #BrianFroud If you don’t know his work, check out the hashtag (but don’t blame me if you lose an hour of your life scrolling through all his stunning creations for the Jim Henson Company!)

@lokokitchen Your work consistently blows my mind 🤯

@lunchboxdad This is so beautiful!

Introducing the #PieDoll! (in “Grapefruit Meringue RuPaul” form) 🤗 ⠀⠀
I baked this as my offering in the #greatfruitgrapefruit collab hosted by the ever lovely @squaremealroundtable and @whatannieseating. Peep the hashtag to see everyone’s sweet and tangy delights!
⠀⠀
I came up with the idea for “Pie Dolls” a couple years ago and I really love making them for friends’ birthdays - there are so many different styling options and ways to make them your own. All you need is a “tall pie” base, and a little imagination!
⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I was sketching out ideas for the grapefruit collab I kept coming back to the idea of fabulous pink dresses with grapefruit decorations. Just then, a “RuPaul’s Drag Race” promo came on Netflix in the background and it just clicked! You can’t get much more fabulous, sweet, and tangy than RuPaul - plus it gave me an excuse to bust out the sprinkles and edible glitter, which I am *always* down for! 
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lots of kids (and grown ups) can’t eat cake, or just prefer pie for their birthdays, but still want the fancy showstopper dessert centerpiece at their party. I think Pie Dolls are great alternative. Let me know in the comments below if you’d like me to post the how to video so you can make your own Pie Dolls!

Happy Lunar New Year! Festivities are kicking into high gear here in Vancouver for the Year of the Pig. While the official start is Feb 5th, the decorations have been everywhere for the past few weeks... it is a colorful, exciting time. And even though we don’t have any of the traditional feasts or exchanges in our family (no red envelopes for you son! ) lots of our friends do, and we love going to all the parades and events. The lion dances here are epic!

It’s February! Time to start thinking about the perfect Valentines gift for the deserving nerds in your life... If you’re short on cash this year, but wanting to make a big impact, why not try your hand at making some of my chibi Darth Vader Pie Pops? The full tutorial for how to make these is in my featured stories...
⠀⠀
I cut out the pieces of pie dough using hand sketched paper templates and assembly-lined putting them together with egg white as glue. A final “vanilla wash” helps the details stand out when it puffs up in the oven, and the cherry filling peeks through the little heart cut out. Bake for 12 min at 400. You can finish them off with gold sprinkles and a pun-y tag like my “You’ve In-Vader-d My Heart” tags, or add your own personal message with a bit of pretty ribbon. All in all these took two hours to make and cost about $5.
⠀⠀
Will you be giving out home baked goodies to friends and significant others this Valentines Day? Tag a nerdy friend who you would share these pie pops with!

@lunchboxdad My family would LOVE these! We are huge Star Wars fans!

Happy National Pie Day everyone!! 🥧
⠀
Those who have been following along my pie journey these past three years know that one of my big goals has been to prove once and for all that pies are a viable alternative to cake for that coveted front-and-center wedding buffet table spotlight. Folks have been reticent to “go cakeless” even when they love the taste of pie, because they were worried pies were just too flat and unflashy - that pies couldn’t make a proper visual statement in the reception hall. Well! I hope I may convert a few new believers this Pie Day with my first three-tier Wedding Piescraper! It has chocolate silk filling, a pie pastry crust and pie pastry decorative panels, all held together with chocolate around a custom designed stainless steel spool armature (food safe of course!) ⠀⠀
You can watch the full timelapse video of its creation on my site PiesAreAwesome.com and I’m happy to answer any questions about its construction here too. It’s very sturdy and even stood up to my six year old taking bites out of it with his hands behind his back!  
Now I’m off to check out everyone else’s fabulous pie celebrations (and to spread the word that #PieIsTheNewCake ) 🥧 ⠀⠀

@lokokitchen Stop it. That. Is. Incredible!!!!

@camilladerrico Stunning 💖💖

I call this one “A Dream of Spring”. Though we’re in the middle of January and there’s not a lot of color in the world right now, new growth and new life are just around the corner! Plus I felt like making some butterflies, so... 🦋
⠀
This one was another collab with my husband Nis - he made the coconut filling, which pairs nicely with the white chocolate painted on the crust and the edible glue holding the butterflies and swirly bits up. The background pattern was made using a printed acetate stencil, *almost* frozen dough rolled out on a flexible cutting mat, and my trusty super sharp pen blade. All the top decorations were added after bake so they could each be baked the perfect amount of time for their thickness. It’s super simple to do, but I really like the extra pop of the 3D elements on top of normally flat pies! But what do you think? Do you dig the mixed media/3D decorations or do you want to see more of the traditional flat pie styles from me? Or both! 🥧
⠀
Don’t forget to enter my big Pie Art tools giveaway! The deadline in Jan 23rd and all the details are on my previous post.

I had a tremendous amount of fun creating this Millennium Falcon Mince Pie for Star Wars U.K. I’m so happy they’ve given me permission to share it now - I hope you like it! I made extensions to a regular metal pie pan using forms I created from a disposable pie tin and baked the whole thing on a cookie sheet. It held together perfectly and has given me a bunch of ideas for future “non-standard” pie pan shapes. Is there a Star Wars nerd in your life that you would bake this for? Tag ‘em below! ⠀⠀
Maybe I should do the Enterprise next... or, ooh! Serenity! What’dya reckon?
