These come in no particular order because honestly, we love them all!
1. 4th of July Pie
An American flag blueberry and cherry pie? What better way to celebrate the fourth of July!? We love the creativity of this flag pie. It’s not too hard to create the crust too if you have the right tools. Use a cookie cutter for the stars to make your life a lot easier! This pie is sure to be the hit of the party!
2. A Di-vine Pie
This mixed fruit pie is absolutely di-vine! We love the leaf applique crust and the leaf, vine and flower topper! A lovely design for a spring or summer picnic. Not to mention how the fruit you choose to use will shine through. This is definitely an eye appealing pie.
3. Book of Pi
Many pun, pi, and pie lovers celebrate National Pi Day by making a pie that incorporates the numbers in Pi. We love this Apple Book of Pi with the first 24 digits of the irrational number. A lot of work must have gone into this one! Just check out the spine and those pages!
4. Cinnamon Roll Pie
Cinnamon lovers, what’s better than having a cinnamon flavored and filled pie? An entire pie crust made of cinnamon rolls!! Cinnamon overload? No such thing.
5. A Leafy Pie
This leafy pie is picture perfect, for fall or anytime of the year. Each leaf applique is detailed and stacked perfectly! It almost looks too good to eat. Almost, because really who can resist a freshly baked pie!
Gone are the days of sticky icing and figuring out how to roll the perfect fondant layer for a birthday cake. At least for this talented pie maker. What kid wouldn’t want this awesome pie for an under the sea or Pirates of the Caribbean themed party? This Octo-pie could totally pass for a Kraken or Davy Jones after all!
7. Piggy Pot Pies
We love love love chicken pot pies, but we love these piggy pot pies even more! So cute, so simple and fun for any child that gets to eat one of these.
8. Rose Apple Pie
This isn’t just a pie, it’s art. These thinly sliced apples make up some of the most beautiful roses we’ve ever seen. This pie is so elegant, it can be used for a multitude of occasions. Baby showers, wedding showers, brithday, weddings? You name it. Just imagine how impressed all the guests would be.
9. S’mores Pie
Kicking it back old school with this childhood favorite. Actually, scratch the childhood part, because we’ve been known to enjoy a s’more or two or five well into our adulthood. We can’t resist the classic roasted marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate. Gooey melted goodness? Our favorite.
And this s’mores pie with the browned marshmallows on top does a very good job of mimicking the camp classic. Best served fresh out of the oven!
10. Spring Flowers Pie
This is one of the prettiest and most ethereal pies we’ve seen. We love the flower cut outs in different sizes and the contrasting blue from the fresh blueberries. The simple crust is perfect and doesn’t detract from the main focus of this pie which should be the flower toppers and amazing color.
