For nearly a year, Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin (aka @ThePieous) has delighted us with her nerdy, fannish pies and other baked goods, and now she's announced an ebook on "pie-modding" ("modifying pre-made desserts to create epic, edible works of art"): Pie Modding: Pies Are Awesome Vol 1, which you can pre-order for $2.97.
We all have our reasons for wanting to pass off store bought goodies as our own... and now with the help of Pies Are Awesome's Pie-Modding cookbook, we can do so in spectacularly epic (and easy) fashion!
The full colour step by step photo tutorials in this book will show you how to not only add enchanting visual flair to your desserts, but also exciting new flavour combinations sure to wow your friends (and make your enemies totally jelly!) The first in a series of Pies Are Awesome cookbooks dedicated to "epic-ing up the best dessert on the planet", Pie-Modding is a great entry point for the pie-curious considering dipping a toe into the wonderful world of epic baking.
