As the cold weather approaches, there’s nothing more wholesome than a delicious pie. And if you’re into baking, you might agree that the best thing about the pie is its crust. From woven lattices to patterned puff pastry, a pie’s top gives chefs a chance to showcase their creativity and skill. One food artist who’s doing just that is Vancouver-based Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin (of The Pieous). She creates incredible pie crust designs inspired by pop culture and the seasons. And since Halloween is just around the corner, the talented “pie-oneer” has been conjuring up a collection of spooktacular pies that are sure to inspire you to (trick or) treat yourself.

From a Jack-o'-lantern pie to a tart decorated with pastry skulls, each pie crust design looks just like a work of spine-tingling art. Clark-Bojin even made her first ever three-tier “Wedding Piescraper” with a chocolate silk filling. The self-taught baker says, “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!”

Although her desserts look elaborate, Clark-Bojin believes that anyone can create pie crusts just like hers, and often shares images of her process on Instagram. And since many of us are now more-or-less confined to our houses during the COVID-19 pandemic, now is the perfect time to learn a new skill. “I know it’s going to be a different sort of Halloween this year what with the global apocalypse and all,” jokes Clark-Bojin. “But hey, even if we can’t see our friends live, we can always send them an awesome Halloween pie to let them know they are with us in spirit.”
