This Baker Made An Intricate Baby Yoda Pie For The Holidays

This is amazing!

The world has Baby Yoda on the brain, and it was only a matter of time before that small green creature invaded our kitchens.

People are already sharing their Baby Yoda cookie creations online, but one baker has gone even further. Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin has turned Baby Yoda into a pie, and as if that wasn’t impressive enough, she’s completely self-taught in the kitchen!

Four years ago, the Vancouver mom didn’t know how to crack an egg, and she’s now a judge on the Food Network and possibly the finest pie baker on Instagram. Clark-Bojin recently told Insider that her raspberry-filled pie, which took two hours to make, was inspired by her 7-year-old son’s “Star Wars” advent calendar, which came with a little Porg in a Santa hat.

“When I saw the ‘Baby Yoda sipping soup‘ video clips, I immediately thought of sticking a Santa hat on him and giving him some hot cocoa,” she said.

Just look at the detail she put into the finished product!

The cutest thing to come out of “The Mandalorian,” the new live-action “Star Wars” series that’s streaming on Disney+, Baby Yoda looks incredible in pie form. But it was no easy task, even for an expert baker like Clark-Bojin.

“The hardest part was the tiny candy cane and marshmallow in his cup,” she told Insider. “You can’t sculpt that with pie dough, so you have to whittle away the dough instead.”

She learned the art of pies through a lot of research and experimentation, following her decision to cut out refined sugar and sugar substitutes from her diet for a year.

“I became really desperate for some form of dessert that I could actually eat without cheating,” she told Insider. “I knew that I could theoretically make a decent-tasting pie using just apples, spices, and unsweetened shortcrust pastry — I just had no experience in the kitchen.”

“At that point in time, I’d only ever used my oven to bake polymer clay figures,” she added. “But I was determined.”

The Baby Yoda pie is part of Clark-Bojin’s “12 Days of Crustmas” giveaway on her hugely popular Instagram account. But she makes pies and shares the amazing results on her page all through the year.

Betty Boop was one of the stars of her Halloween themed pie range, and it was also an interactive pie concept that encourages pie play by allowing the eater to add and remove different accessories, as you can see in the slides below on Instagram.

Introducing the #PaperDollPie, featuring Betty Boop! 👄🖤 Now you can dress up your pie and eat it too! 😜 Ever since my “Scrabble Pie” last Thanksgiving I’ve been sketching out other interactive pie concepts that allow me to “play with my food” some more. I’ve always loved making paper dolls and after being stumped about which 1920s vintage costume to dress Betty in for this pie, I decided to just go with all three: Pierrot clown, witch, and fortune teller. 🤡🧙‍♀️🔮The outfits are pie dough “cookies” and the pie is (poison) apple with gold sanding sugar. Which one do you like best? ⠀ Betty Boop might not be the first character that pops in your mind when you think of Halloween, but she actually features in some of the earliest ever Halloween cartoons, and they are weird and awesome! 🎃 Most of her movies are in the public domain now so you can check them out on YouTube for a little old school spooky fun tonight. In fact, there are loads of bizarre old black and white classic Halloween cartoons to explore online! ⠀ What other characters do you think would make fun Paper Doll Pies? —- Stay tuned for the winners of the #HalloweenPieArt giveaway tomorrow – Happy Halloween Everybody! 🎃💕😊 —- #bettyboop #interactivepie #playwithyourfood

In honor of Pride month, Clark-Bojin made a pie featuring Elton John on what she described as her “most blinged up pie to date!”

“I’m not the pie they think I am at home, oh no no no, I’m a rocket flannnn!” 💫 A few days ago I posted a poll asking which musician/album cover you’d like me to create in pie form… well the votes are in, and overwhelmingly the top choice was the Rocketman himself, Sir Elton John! ✨🚀✨ ⠀⠀ Since it is Pride month, I decided to go for one of his more rainbow-y costumes… and I couldn’t help but add a few (thousand) extra edible sequins and sparkles and luster dust and sanding sugar… I think this may just be my most blinged up pie to date! And the sanding sugar creates a gorgeous brûlée crunch layer on top… I hope you like it! ❤️🧡💛💚💙 ⠀⠀ My favorite Elton John song is “Madman Across the Water”, what’s yours? And what band or musician do you think I should “pie up” next? Happy Pride! ⠀⠀ #pride🌈 #pride #pridemonth #happypride #pie #eltonjohn #rocketman #rocketmanmovie #sireltonjohn #pietrait #pietraits #applepie #flatlaytoday #sparkles #glitter #tastemademedoit #tastemade #cupcakeproject #pietraitchallenge

To celebrate Barbie’s 60th birthday, Clark-Bojin made a peaches and cream pie featuring the world’s most famous doll.

Happy 60th Birthday Barbie! You don’t look a day over… 25? 19? 36? How old is she supposed to be? Anyway, ya look great doll! 🎉🌺💃 ⠀ While doing research for this “Peaches and Cream” 🍑 Barbie pie I fell down the rabbit hole of Barbie nostalgia… both over dolls I owned (I *loved* my “Dream Date” Barbie – she had a ruffle you could rearrange on her dress in four ways! 😍) and over dolls I did not own, but coveted hardcore. Like “Crystal Barbie” – my friend Alicia had her – and “Sweet Roses PJ”. The kid who lived across the street had Sweet Roses PJ but she wasn’t allowed to take her off the shelf. Which I thought was pretty f’d up 😂 ⠀ How about you? Which Barbies were your prized possessions, and which did you desire with unrequited 8 year old passion? Honorable mention goes to “Derek” from “Barbie and the Rockers”. He was way hotter than Ken. 😜 ⠀ #barbie #barbiedoll #barbie60thanniversary #barbiecake #barbiestyle #80stoys #80s #80sfashion #dollcake #peachesandcream #peaches #peach #peachpie #spring #springfashion #fashion #lace #flatlay #tastemademedoit #eightiescollab2019

Another music-themed pie was a Dolly Parton creation, and Clark-Bojin paid tribute to Parton’s love of all things sparkly by piling on the “edible bling.”

🎼Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Joleeeeeeene I'm begging of you please don't take my flan… 🎶💕🥧 Okay, it’s a pie, not a flan. But “Workin’ 9 to Pie” didn’t quite have the same ring to it… Lay it on me if you’ve got a better Dolly Pie Pun! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I must say, it was a little bit intimidating baking a pietrait of Miss Dolly Parton – she is a lady who knows her pies! I hope if she ever sees this she’ll feel I did her justice… she’s such an incredible talent as a performer and song writer, and from all accounts just an all-round beautiful human! I don’t know if she likes apple pie, but I know (like me) she loves sparkles ✨so I just followed my heart and piled on the edible bling 😊🌈💕 You can never have too many sprinkles, right?! 😜 ⠀⠀⠀ I’ve got time to do two or three more “musicians with big personalities” pietraits this month… who do you want to see next? ⠀⠀⠀ #dollyparton #nashville #country #applepie #glitter #dollywood #style #instafood #good

And her Baby Yoda pie wasn’t even this baker’s first foray into the world of Star Wars. In 2016, she did a series of pies inspired by the galaxy far, far away, including this one that included Lando Calrissian!

Meanwhile, I’m just happy if my pie crust doesn’t totally collapse in the oven!
