Apple Pie

It seems like the desserts never end! First cake, then zabaglione, and now apple pie! Regardless, I’m super happy with how this one turned out.

I started with a cardboard base.

I was struggling with how to make the crust look appropriately “rolled” and “pinched” the way that pie crust does, when it hit me that I could cut slats and bend them. So I did!

The top of it looked far too plain so I added some faux lattice work by making cuts and strategically scoring the top in several places.

Then I created a filling with cling wrap and paper.

Finally, I added the paint and the ice cream to give it a little bit of “realism.”

It actually looks really really good, especially compared to the reference photo I used.
