These pies sure do look tasty…but I think you would feel bad cutting into them because they are such unique pieces of art.

Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin makes pies based around pop culture: movies, TV, music, etc.

And they are pretty wonderful.

Get a load of these delicious-looking treats.

You know nothing Jon Dough… I mean Snow… ?❄️ ⠀⠀ I’m so excited to be doing another Pie Art collab with the incredibly talented Liz Joy of @inspiredtotaste – and of course we just had to do something Game of Thrones related what with the final season premiere just a week away… So tell me, are you a Jon/Dany shipper? Or is it “Jon & Ygritte 4eva” for you? ? Head on over to Liz’s profile to check out our pick for the ideal match for young Jon… ⠀⠀ This pie is blueberry with black sanding sugar and little crow “pie dough cookies”, also covered in black sanding sugar. I had a lot of fun making (and eating!) this one – the crows were fun to dip into the filling like little sparkly nachos. ? ⠀⠀ Now the real question… Who’s your favorite character on the show, and who do you think will be left standing at the end? (I’m guessing probably just HotPie and a couple of chickens walking around ?) ⠀⠀ #pie #pieart #GRRM #kitharington #kitharrington #blueberrypie #gameofthrones #gameofthronesmemes #crows #got #gotfanart #goth #medieval #cakedecorating #pastryart #foodart #georgerrmartin #jonsnow #youknownothingjonsnow #winteriscoming #pietrait #pietraits #cookiedecorating #hbo #forthethrone #pietraits

Happy 60th Birthday Barbie! You don’t look a day over… 25? 19? 36? How old is she supposed to be? Anyway, ya look great doll! ??? ⠀ While doing research for this “Peaches and Cream” ? Barbie pie I fell down the rabbit hole of Barbie nostalgia… both over dolls I owned (I *loved* my “Dream Date” Barbie – she had a ruffle you could rearrange on her dress in four ways! ?) and over dolls I did not own, but coveted hardcore. Like “Crystal Barbie” – my friend Alicia had her – and “Sweet Roses PJ”. The kid who lived across the street had Sweet Roses PJ but she wasn’t allowed to take her off the shelf. Which I thought was pretty f’d up ? ⠀ How about you? Which Barbies were your prized possessions, and which did you desire with unrequited 8 year old passion? Honorable mention goes to “Derek” from “Barbie and the Rockers”. He was way hotter than Ken. ? ⠀ #barbie #barbiedoll #barbie60thanniversary #barbiecake #barbiestyle #80stoys #80s #80sfashion #dollcake #peachesandcream #peaches #peach #peachpie #spring #springfashion #fashion #lace #flatlay #tastemademedoit

4. Captain Marvel

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!!) ? ⠀⠀ #applepie #sugar #goosethecat #captainmarvel #brielarson #marvel #stars #superheroes #superhero #superheroparty #comicbooks #pie #cakedecorating #piday #piday2019 #geekgirl #geek #fanart

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? ⠀⠀ https://twitter.com/starwarsuk https://www.facebook.com/StarWars.UK/ ⠀⠀ #starwars #starwarsuk #commission #piecommission #pieart #piecrust #mincepie #starwarspie #starwarscake #millenniumfalcon #starwarsfan #starwarsfanart #pie #pies #piepan #foodart #pieartist #eatmorepie #nerdart #geekfood #starwarsparty #starwarscookies #hansolo #piday #maythe4th #maythefourthbewithyou2019 #piday2019

7. The Alienist

View this post on Instagram

Did you know that Dakota Fanning is in a new mystery/thriller series called The Alienist? It looks pretty intense! But then I’ll give pretty much anything in period costumes a try… it’s kind of my weakness. Especially if there is a spooky component! How about you? Are you into the period dramas? ⠀⠀ @tntdrama commissioned this pie for the show and I’m so chuffed that Dakota shared it on her feed… it’s always nerve-wracking doing portraits. You never know if someone is going to hate it, or be all like “How dare you chop up and eat my face!” ? She seemed cool with it though. I’ve got a couple more celeb portraits coming before the new year. Then I have to think of a new series idea in the lead up to Pie Day! Any ideas? ⠀⠀ #dakotafanning #thealienist #tbs #tbsnetwork #turner #portraits #pietrait #pietraits #perioddrama #costumes #antique #antiques #hightea #teatime #teatime☕️ #Victorianstyle #victorian #antiquebrooch #brooch #brooches #vintagejewelry

8. Kermit and Miss Piggy

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! ??? ⠀ #themuppets #misspiggy #kermit #kermitandpiggy #jimhenson #themuppetschristmas #pies #pieart #welovepieart #holidaybaking #christmaspies #piecrust #crustart #pierevival #tart #tartart #bhgbaking #pastry #desserts #tastemademedoit #gloobyfood #thrillist #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #eater #cupcakeproject #cookieart #cakeart #themuppetschristmascarol

9. Beatrix Potter

View this post on Instagram

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! ⠀ #macncheese #bakedmacncheese #pies #pieart #welovepieart #holidaybaking #christmaspies #piecrust #crustart #pierevival #tart #tartart #bhgbaking #pastry #pieartanimalscollab #tastemademedoit #gloobyfood #thrillist #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #eater #cupcakeproject #cookieart #cakeart #bakefromscratch #beatrixpotter #mrstittlemouse

10. Supernatural

View this post on Instagram

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 Thanksgiving to you all and here’s to the start of a holiday season filled with even more beautiful and delicious pies! ❤️❤️ ⠀ ⠀ #thanksgiving #thankful #holidayfeast #flatlay #flatlaytoday #flatlays #pastryart #flatlayfood #holidayflatlays #cherrypie #dessertart #supernatural #tntdrama #happythanksgiving #turnernetwork #jensenackles #supernaturalfandom #jaredpadaleki #supernaturalfamily #supernaturalfans #samanddean #samwinchester #deanwinchester #pietrait #pietraits

11. The Great Stan Lee

View this post on Instagram

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. #stanlee #stantheman #stanthemanlee #marvelcomics #ripstanlee #marvelstudios #marvelzombies #marvel #marvelfanart #marvelfan #marvelfans #comiccon #sdcc #comicbooks #comicbooknerd #foodart #pie #cake #cookies #superhero #superheroparty #excelsior #thanksgivingpie #io9 @io9dotcom

12. Nightmare Before Christmas

View this post on Instagram

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! #nightmarebeforechristmas #jackandsally #jackskellington #cake #sallynightmarebeforechristmas #halloweenpie #nightmarebeforechristmascake #baroque #baroquestyle #thanksgivingdinner #halloweentreats #tastemademedoit #desserttable #weddingpie #timburton #timburtonfan #checkerboard #sepia #pumpkinspice #woodenspoon #cakeart #cookieart #fanart

13. Merida

View this post on Instagram

It was a toss up between blueberry or apple spice for this Princess Merida fan art Pie… she eats apples a lot in the film, but she also serves her mum a magical blueberry tart. In the end, ? won out because that’s what I felt like eating for breakfast! ? Thank you for voting for your favorite Disney princesses this month! My series of fan art pies is complete (for now) and these were the top 6 princesses as voted by you: Jasmine, Mulan, Tiana, Belle, Ariel and Merida! ??? Rapunzel, Moana, and Pocahontas got a fair number of votes too but they never quite made the cut… No one voted for Elsa at all! ? Shocking! Maybe I’ll do her for Christmas anyway… So, now it’s time to move into the realm of the spooktacular! ??? What do you want to see? Gore and guts? Classic movie monsters? Kid-friendly pie pops? All Tim Burton, all the time? Let me know in the comments below what I just gotta bake this October and tag a friend who’s into the spooky stuff too! ? … #piepics #edibleart #foodfun #piegoals #thesugarfiles #hautecusines #bakedgoods #baker #psimadethis #desserttime #art #artfood #fooddesign #playwithyourfood #dessert #eatmorepie #magical #beautiful #beautifulfood #foodart #merida #disney #disneyprincesses #brave #applepie #pieart #halloweenpie #cookies #cake #thanksgiving

14. Jessica Rabbit

View this post on Instagram

“I’m not bad… I’m just baked that way.” ♥️ Sometimes a pie-dea just pops in your head and you have to drop everything and bake it. That’s pretty much the story behind this Jessica Rabbit pie! I’ve been all about edible bling this week (ever since I discovered painted on maple syrup as the perfect pie sprinkle glue) and when a friend reminded me in a comment of how much I love Who Framed Roger Rabbit (shoutout @bruceboschek!) this design was instantly projected into my brain. Despite the final terrifying scene with Doom pretty much scarring me for life, I loved that movie so much, and I thought Jessica was so glamorous (I was a kid and she had the same name as me, gimme a break ?) How about you? Any fond (or terrifying) memories of Roger Rabbit? Were there any other cartoons that simultaneously scared and enthralled? (looking at you Secret of NIMH!) . #?>∞ #pieart #pietraits #piesareawesome #piestagram . #crustart #pastryart #ilovepie #pierevival #pielove #pieoneer #pastrylove #foodartist #thepieous #pie #piecrust #baking #instabake #pietrait #piday #glittermakeup #glitterdress #glitterlife #glamglow #whoframedrogerrabbit #jessicarabbitcosplay #jessicarabbit #? #loungesinger

15. Mr. Potter

“Yer a Pie Harry!” ??‍♀️⚡️Or maybe “The Boy who Lived… to Pie Another Day” ? And with that, the holy HP trinity is complete and I can move on to YOUR suggestions for Harry Potter inspired pies! Man, it is going to be sooo tough to choose – you’ve given me so many amazing suggestions already. So far out of your requests I’m leaning towards Luna, Hargrid with a baby dragon, a mandrake root tart, Dobby with socks, or a four flavor divided pie of the Hogwarts crest. What do you vote for? Don’t forget to tag two pie-lovin’ friends to enter my April giveaway!
