Happy Pi Day!
March 14th, aka 3.14, is Pi Day, so I made a pie based on Pokemon #314, Illumise! (Plus the all-female species is perfect for Women’s History Month!)
These have a graham cracker crust and strawberry and raspberry filling using this recipe. All of the pie details are made from store-bought pie dough, which I cut out and dyed with gel food colouring diluted with vanilla or coconut. extract. Of course I also had to sneak in a traditional cross-hatch pattern in the Love Ball design, too.
I had a lot of fun colouring all the little flowers and butterflies and fireflies, and I added foodsafe luster dust to all the bugs’ wings and to the firefly tails. The shimmery wings are my favourite!
This was my second attempt at making an Illumise pie - considering my first attempt was the first pie I had ever made, and I think you can really see how much I’ve improved.
