These Pies Are Inspired By Pop-Culture

Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin makes delicious pies that you might actually feel sorry to eat. When making her traditional American pastry, the self-taught artist seeks inspiration from pop-culture, both real-life celebrities and cartoons characters.

Having no prior experience in the kitchen, Clark-Bojin started backing pies for dietary reasons back in 2015. Then, to make it more fun, she cut out the shape of a dragon on top and her family was amazed, so she stuck to it, challenging herself further with each pie.

“To me, Pie Art isn’t a ‘new fad’ – it’s the uncovering of a lost art form, a way of expressing our love of food and pop culture, a way of discovering new cultures, new flavors, new techniques, of stretching ourselves creatively and intellectually, a new way of providing special dessert treats for the health-conscious, a way of meeting new weird and wonderful people, a way of bonding with the next generation and passing on our love of baking, and most of all a new way of having fun,” she shared with Bored Panda.

On November 10th, 1969 a little show called @SesameStreet hit the airwaves on PBS, and a generation of children of all races, nationalities, income levels and abilities found a voice… and a host of furry new friends! 💕 If you haven’t read up on the show’s history and the controversy surrounding ground breaking decisions (at the time) to include a diverse cast, set the show in an inner city neighborhood, and deal with real emotional challenges facing kids, do yourself a favor and check out their website. Since it’s inception the show has continued to blaze the trail for marginalized kids and has given us some of society’s most beloved characters… I grew up with Sesame Street and have such fond memories of the show’s animated segments (onetwotheefourfivesixseveneightnineteneleventwelve pinball, ladybug’s picnic, ten banana cream pies, etc.) I loved my Oscar the Grouch doll (that was my nickname as a rather serious toddler 😂) And my brother and my favorite book, which we forced my mother to read us over and over and over, was “The Monster at the End of this Book” staring Lovable Furry Old Grover. This pie is my humble homage to my favorite childhood book, and my way of saying Happy Birthday, and thank you, to the global institution that is Sesame Street. Here’s to another 50 years of life, learning, and kindness! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 ⠀ What is your favorite Sesame Street memory? Did you have a favorite toy? A favorite episode or cartoon? A favorite character? Let me know in the comments below! And check out the big 50th bday special tonight on @hbo 😊 ⠀ ⠀ #ThisIsMyStreet #HappyBirthdaySesameStreet #sesamestreet50 #sesamestreetparty #sesamestreet
