You would never know it, but prior to 2016, Jessica Clark-Bojin didn’t consider herself a baker — in fact, she didn’t bake at all. That year, however, a New Year’s resolution to swear off refined sugar brought her to pie-making: “It was the only dessert I could think of that didn’t require any refined sugar to taste ‘real,'” she said.

So, in an effort to keep a little sweetness in her life, Clark-Bojin bought a box of shortening and followed the pie crust recipe on the back. And rather than sticking with a simple crimped edge or lattice crust, she decided to get a creative. Two years later, that creativity has paid off — she’s become famous for her amazingly intricate pie crust creations, which she shows off on her Instagram account @thepieous.

So far, the talented baker has created pies fashioned after pop culture icons, cartoon characters, adorable animals, and more.

Hmm… Tom & Jerry. 🐈🐀What to bake… what to bake… Cheese? Wasn’t Jerry always after cheese? What the heck, let’s plunk ‘em on an apple cheddar pie. 🍎🧀🥧 Whatever it looks like, it’ll be delicious! (This was my thought process tonight after putting kid to bed – made sense at the time! 😂) Seriously though – this smells amazing. If you’ve never tried baked cheddar with apple before, run do not walk to your oven and throw some of that in there! 😜 . #🥧>∞ #pieart #piesareawesome #piestagram #tomandjerry . #crustart #pastryart #ilovepie #pierevival #pielove #pieoneer #pastrylove #foodartist #thepieous #pie #vancity #piecrust #baking #instabake #hannabarbera #nationalpieday #piday #piday2018 #piday #cheesepie #applepie #nationalpiday #internationalpiday #tomandjerrycake

Happy #24carrotgoals Day! 🥕 Big thanks to @squaremealroundtable and @whatannieseating for inviting me to participate – I’m honored to 🐝 among such talented and creative company for this carroty collab! To celebrate, I’ve whipped up a “honey carrot ginger pie” – def a first new flavor for me, not too sweet, but I dig it! I threw some minced candied ginger on top of the filling and crust for a little sparkle. How do you feel about carrots in dessert? Heck yas, or naw you crazy? 😜 . #🥧>∞ #pieart #piesareawesome #pietraits . #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #eeeeeats #beautifulcuisines #thekitchn @thefeedfeed #foodandwine #forkyeah #onthetable #yahoofood #buzzfeedfood #feedfeed #f52grams #crustart #pastryart #food52 #ilovepie #pierevival #carrotpie #gingerpie #honeypie #beeart #prettypies

Our favorites, though, just might be her Disney princesspies.

Would you like to see more Disney princess fan art pies from me? 🌸💐🌷 I woke up inspired to make this Snow White gooseberry apple pie – Spring has finally sprung in Vancouver and the little birds are chirping up a storm! I went out into the yard and saw dozens of cute little fat birds in the trees – I don’t know what they are called but they look like tiny spheres with bright eyes. I want to squish them 😜 Anyhoo, it brought to mind the scene with Snow White baking her gooseberry pie for Grumpy with all the little (unsanitary) animals helping. 😂 I hope you like it! Now the most important question – who is *your* favorite Disney princess (and animal sidekick!) Tag a friend who’s into Disney! . #fanart #🥧>∞ #pieart #piesareawesome #piestagram . #crustart #pastryart #ilovepie #pierevival #pielove #pieoneer #pastrylove #foodartist #thepieous #pie #piecrust #baking #instabake #beautifulcuisines #piday #wilton #disneypie #disneyprincess #disneyprincessart #disneyfood #snowwhite #princesscake #disneyfan #disney #buzzfeedfood
