Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin, a pie maker who blogs about her creations under the name Pies Are Awesome, has become world famous for her detailed pies. Also known as @ThePieous on social media, Clark-Bojin has been enchanting pie lovers with her epic pie art creations since 2016 and has appeared as a judge on The Today Show and Food Network, as well as in hundreds of print and online publications.
Now, she is bringing her pies to an even bigger audience with the release of a new book. Set to hit bookshelves on Tuesday, November 9, Pies Are Awesome: The Definitive Pie Art Book: Step-by-Step Designs for All Occasions will feature groundbreaking decorating techniques and twenty-five pie art projects that are centered around cherished celebrations throughout the entire year, in addition to a foreword by legendary pastry chef and television personality Duff Goldman.
The ample step-by-step photos take you through Clark-Bojin’s easy-to-follow pie art techniques, while the friendly and funny writing style encourages experimentation and creative discovery. Pies Are Awesome also includes tricks for working with your own tried-and-true dough recipes and store-bought dough; modifications to personalize projects; and online resources for printable templates, pie communities, friendly challenges and more.
“Jessica’s pies are a treat in every sense of the word, and I think the only question you’ll still have about pie after you read Pies Are Awesome is, “Plain, slice of cheese, or a la mode?”” says Duff Goldman.
