Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin, a pie maker who blogs about her creations under the name Pies Are Awesome, has become well-known for her detailed pies. Some of her most notable works shared on her blog and on Instagram include “pietraits” of celebrities such as Prince and Elton John.

Clark-Bojin’s latest creation celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. She spent over three hours designing and baking a cheesecake and blueberry pie featuring the image of the iconic landing.

“The 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing is a big day in my nerdy family...  My father worked in aerospace and I was fortunate to visit Cape Canaveral when I was 8 years old. I had a big poster of Sally Ride on my wall and got “official NASA” stickers and patches and other doo-dads to decorate my room. I ate the freeze dried ice cream. I built the Lego shuttlecraft. I mourned the Challenger explosion, and cheered the opening of the International Space Station. And today I pass on my love of space exploration to my son as we follow the progress of rovers and distant probes from our local planetarium hangout (The H. R. MacMillian Space Centre) and watch the preparations for the next moon (and hopefully soon Mars) voyages,” the Instagram post reads.

“To me, space exploration represents the best of mankind as scientists across borders, religions, and political affiliations work together to accomplish things bigger than any one person or nation, for the good of all of us. How about you? Does your family follow all this “Space stuff”?”
