If you close your eyes and take a bite of a warm pie, a nostalgic feeling can reverberate through your body. Well, this baker can give you that same nostalgic feeling, but through the visual appeal alone of her stunning custom pies.
Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin is elevating the art of pie baking, and taking it to levels you’d normally see with cakes or other desserts.
With every new post on her Instagram account, you’re sure to be wide-eyed and shocked by the detail and creativity that goes into each pie.
Pies are known as for having flaky, doughy flat tops, but clark-Bojin does not limit herself to those specifications. Not only does she draw pop culture characters on the pie surfaces, she also brings the baked goods to life with 3D, in-your-face, sculpture-like pies.
She doesn’t keep her pie-sculpting secrets to herself either, as she puts together tutorials on how to try to make these pietraits on your own, and even wrote a book on the art of pie modeling.
Not sure if I have the steady hand, or patience to make beautiful pie art, but if you think you have it in you, definitely give it a shot.
