Viral baker makes the sweetest Baby Yoda pie for the holidays

Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin knows pies. The Vancouver-based self-taught baker has an Instagram devoted to her artful pies and she’s even appeared on The Food Network and the TODAY show. 

“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!” Clark-Bojin said on her website

The baker’s take on pies is unique and inspired. Clark-Bojin uses her crust as a canvas to create edible tributes to some of her favorite icons like PrinceBetty White and David Bowie

She showed how she made a holiday raspberry Baby Yoda pie in one post. Clark-Bojin carved a detailed rendering of Baby Yoda sipping a mug of cocoa and wearing a Christmas hat into the crust. It looked like flakey, fruity heaven and almost too cute to eat. 

Despite her skillful hand, Clark-Bojin couldn’t bake as recently as 2016.

“I was not a kitchen person by any stretch of the imagination,” Clark-Bojin told CBC Arts. “I’ve literally burned Ichiban.”

But when she made her first pie ever in April 2016, it went viral on websites like Bored Panda. She had turned the crust of an apple cheddar pie into a detailed dragon.

“I thought, ‘This is strange. Surely other people have done things like this before,'” Clark-Bojin told CBC Arts. 

It was after some research that she realized nobody was really taking pies seriously. So she made more pop culture pies featuring things like Game of Thrones and Disney characters. 

“Nothing brings joy more than spreading joy to other people and reading letters and posts from bakers telling me I encouraged them to try something new and find a new passion is what gets me out of bed in the morning,” Clark-Bojin told Buzzfeed.
