There’s no scarier tale than that of the Kraken, the legendary giant monster that trolls the sea, tackling ships with its unwieldy tentacles. Its enormity knows no bounds and can easily single-handedly take down large ships with a single thwip. Now, imagine this creature surfacing and creating havoc on your dessert. Why, it’s enough to send a chill down your spine.
Behold the Kraken Pie, an amazing multi-layered dessert consisting of a decorative tower, with crashing waves at its base, surrounded by large tentacled arms, all reaching up to grab a ship sitting upon another tiny pie. incredibly, each piece is made of pie dough that’s been hand-cut and baked.
It’s almost too much goodness to behold:
This behemoth was created by Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin, a.k.a. @ThePieous, the woman responsible for making pie cool again with her incredibly detailed pop culture dessert creations. They’re seriously works of art with pie crust, as she intricately brings characters and stories to life all atop a 9-inch pie.
While Clark-Bojin has been experimenting with pop culture themed pie design for over a year, lately she’s been working vertically—trying to attain height. Something for which pie isn’t normally known.
There are a lot of great culinary tips to be picked up by watching the video, too. A major one being the use of double pie dough to give structure to more fragile pieces. A genius idea and one that will ensure stability for taller objects. Referring to this edible feat of engineering as a piescrapers, Clark-Bojin gets some impressive lift to normally flat surfaced pie.
Now to how handily defeat this beast. Release the Kraken! (And make it à la Mode!)
