Baker Creates Beautiful CALVIN AND HOBBES ‘Piescraper’ of our Dreams

The classic comic strip Calvin and Hobbes will always be one of the more beloved things we keep in our hearts. It was a deliberate choice to keep the comic pure in the way that there were no cartoon spin-offs, movies, or even official merch for it. Scarcity like that is rare in today’s pop culture landscape, so we take notice when fans make something Calvin and Hobbes-related. This delectable bit of baking excellence definitely caught our eyes.

A recent post on Laughing Squid brought this edible Sunday comic strip to our attention, and I’m floored at how great it looks. Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin of the very appropriately named Pies Are Awesome YouTube channel created this in honor of the first day of autumn; she couldn’t have picked a more perfect image for inspiration.

With an extensive amount of work that surpasses our wildest baking dreams and any stores of patience we have, the video shows us what it takes to create this DIY “Piescraper.” The majority of the scene is sheets of pie crust layered in the right way and painted with (we’re hoping) edible food coloring. Once assembled, the image of Calvin and his trusty tiger headed down a leaf-covered hill in their wagon jumps out into the three PIEmensional world (I won’t be apologizing for that phrase).

What do you think of this culinary piece of art? What other scenes from Calvin and Hobbes would you want to see recreated in an edible medium? Calvin’s wacky faces? The duo’s dance party? Let’s discuss in the comments below.
