These Pop-Culture Inspired Pies Should Be Considered Works of Art

Pies are a delicious treat that usually cheer a person up and make a bad day a bit better or a good day even greater. But, as Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin shows us, they can be much more.

Those of you who know me well, know that Jim Henson and Brian Froud were two of my biggest artistic inspirations growing up… which is why I was so thrilled that YOU GUYS overwhelmingly voted for me to make “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” the subject of my next pie! 🔮⚔️🧚‍♂️ Seriously, it wasn’t even close. I got hundreds of great suggestions but the one that came up over and over again was “something from Dark Crystal!” Not only am I pleased as punch to get to create this humble homage to one of my favorite shows (on Netflix now – go watch it!) I’m so happy to know that so many of you love it too! The use of real puppets and sets is just so special. To know that these worlds actually exist and can (in theory) be visited in real life makes me happy. Visiting those sets one day is my dream… 🥰 ⠀⠀ I started making the Gelfling character “Deet” out of modeling chocolate (with a malt ball eye) but I didn’t have any green chocolate paint to tint her skin, and also decided she needed a more defiant expression so I switched her to “Brea.” So we’ve got Brea’s coloring and expression on Deets features 😂 Bit of artistic license! I’m happy with how the Skeksis Chamberlain turned out though – he’s just pie crust painted with gel color mixed with vanilla extract. ⠀⠀ Have you seen the show yet? If a “Jim Henson World” theme park existed, what fictional locations would you just love to visit – The Pigs in Space set? Labyrinth? Fraggle Rock? Sesame Street? Farscape? The Muppet Babies Nursery? Let me know in the comments below, and thanks for all your great pie suggestions! ⠀⠀. #jimhenson #darkcrystal #brianfroud #lisahenson #wendyfroud #pieart @darkcrystalofficial @hensoncompany #ageofresistance #jimhensoncompany @netflix #thra #thedarkcrystalageofresistance #skeksis #gelfling #pie

This talented Canadian baker is a real expert when it comes to pies, as she is able to turn them into real works of art. She is inspired by pop culture and she includes scenes from popular TV shows like Game of Thrones and blockbuster movies like Star Wars.

As a matter of fact, her pies are so well crafted that you might have troubles digging into them in order not to spoil their artistic value. No matter how mouth-watering they are.

“My mission is to show the world that not only can pies go head-to-head against the poshest wedding cakes and fancy-pants desserts on the most discerning buffet tables of the world, but that they can be fun and easy to pull off too!”- says Jessica on her official website.

Check out some of her creations below.

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
