The beautiful food trend is so confusing to me. I love being blown away by an amazing-looking dish, but then I get sad at the thought of eating it and destroying what is so clearly a work of art. And I never want to be sad about eating food. Eating food is the best. Nevertheless, there is one woman who is taking pies to a level that no one else has taken them before. Her pies are intricate beyond belief and most often inspired by some of the most iconic moments and characters in pop culture. Sure, we all know a fancy cakemaker or two. But pies? This has been uncharted territory... until now.
This is Jessica.
She is a filmmaker and pie expert behind the site piesareawesome.com. It’s pretty self-explanatory.
Jessica makes insane pop-culture-inspired pies that she exhibits on her Instagram account, @ThePieous and on her YouTube channel, where she documents how she achieves dessert perfection in mesmerizing videos.
Her pies are as epic as pies can be.
A Wrinkle in Time? More like A Wrinkle in Pie!
Oprah can honestly pull off any look, including being a caramel chocolate apple pie. The woman is flawless.

The hair. It’s so spiky and perfect.
How does she do it?!
This is the most beautiful pastry tribute I’ve seen to the late great Carrie Fisher. General Organa would be quite cherry about this. Wait, did I say cherry? I meant cheery.
Can you believe the detail on this Merida princess hand pie? I can’t believe someone actually took a bite of her! It’s amazing what Jessica has been able to do with Disney princesses…
When you wish upon a tart, makes no difference who you are…
