Find Out Why People Are Baking Cherry Pies For Katy Perry On Twitter

From wearing a Flamin’ Hot Cheeto dress to having whipped cream shoot out of her nipples, Katy Perry knows how to use food to bring attention to her music.

Now she’s at it again, asking fans on Twitter to bake cherry pies for her, using a recipe she put up.

The submissions quickly poured in, as Perry promised something special to whoever made the best looking pie. Perry even took the time to judge some of the tweeted submissions and giving feedback.

You might be wondering why the hell she wants people to bake pies, but it probably all comes down to fantastic marketing.

KP’s upcoming album will have a song called “Bon Appetit,” and fans think they’ve cracked a secret code within the recipe that Perry provided.

Within the paragraphs in the baking instructions, there’s subtle commentary added by Perry, saying things such as, “Please just take your time,” along with, “This pie is gonna hit that sweet tooth, boy,” and “Calm those hungry eyes.”

Katy Perry superfans believe those are actually part of the lyrics for her next single, possibly even the hook.

Katy’s inner-foodie just came out again, and her fans are eating it all up. Now we just have to wait and see if the secret recipe actually was a clue to her next song.

Here’s How to Make Cherry Pie Jello Shots, Complete with Mini Graham Cracker Crusts

So the family-centric holidays are technically over (unless you’re one of those people who actually enjoys boozing it up with gramps, ya freak). But that doesn’t mean the family-centric holiday-themed treats have to end. In fact, why not keep the fun of all the suffocating hugs and ugly sweaters and forced smiles going by whipping up some of these Cherry Pie Jello Shots for your favorite New Year’s Eve bash?

Because nothing says awkward familial gathering like a delicious slice of cherry pie.

Brought to us by the “queen of jello shots” herself, That’s So Michelle, these delightfully simple tarts are made by pouring your cherry-flavored jello/vodka mix into pre-made mini pie crusts. Best of all, each “pie” can be cut up into smaller individual slices, guaranteeing there’s enough awkward tasty holiday misappropriation to go around.

Check out the full recipe and photos, here.

Cherry Pie in a Cheesecake Cupcake

A cherry pie baked into a cheesecake cupcake. Can things be more right in the world right now? Are we in a war right now? Is the economy in shambles? “Possibly” on both counts, but, it doesn’t change the fact that we’re looking at a chocolate cupcake that is stuffed with a graham cracker crust, cherry pie filling and a swirl of no-bake cheesecake on top. You know what else is right? The drizzle of cherry sauce and sprinkle of mini chocolate chips + graham cracker crumbs on top. The game is changing folks!

Craving: Cherpumple Pie


A three tier, multi-dimensional cake…this is truly a winner. We’re looking at a bottom layer made of pumpkin pie within a spice cake, the middle layer of apple pie inside a yellow cake, and the level above that is a cherry pie inside a white cake. Oh yeah, the entire thing is separated and covered in cream cheese frosting. For the win? Yes. (PicThx TIWYF)
