H.P. Lovecraft's Cthuhlu made out of a blueberry pie for dessert with tentacles like an octopus

Is that pie not amazing!!?? Even if you have no idea who Cthulhu is, you can see that it took a lot of effort to pull that pie off. Nicely done, Sandy Yoo!

I actually had a hard time finding some other great Cthulhu creations because so many of them were simply hot dogs or vienna sausages, cut to look like octopuses, and then not a whole lot else. I was going to do a top 5 or 10, but after digging around for a while, I’m rather disappointed. :(

Look at this one, though:

Cinnamon snickerdoodle 3D cookie shaped like Cthulhu

It’s called Snickerthulhu and it looks like the original has been moved unfortunately. The side view of it is pretty impressive!

If you know of some other truly amazing Cthulhu creations, send them my way. I thought I’d find some awesome cakes, but they just aren’t cutting it. :(

Pi Day apple pie with numbers on the crust and apple number slices inside for filling

I have been around the interwebs for my fair share of “pi days”* and have seen a lot of awesome pies created for the day. I’ve even made my own pies on that day, because that’s what you’re supposed to do, right?

But this one takes the cake (er, pie?) for the best pi-related one. It goes above and beyond just putting the pi numbers on top and instead, fills the center with pie shaped apple slices, too. How fun would that be to slice into after already being impressed that there are numbers on top and expecting a regular pie inside?

From what I hear, A Periodic Table blogger Shannon is pretty darn good cook, too, and she’s got a lot of tips for how to make your own pie taste amazing, so I’m pretty sure this not only looks awesome, but would taste awesome, too. Usually when I see creations like this, I want to make my own and it inspires me to do something similar or related somehow, so it’s not an exact copy. I have no idea how I could possibly improve this one, though, so I’m just going to leave it to her. <3


*March 14 is considered “Pi Day” because the first 3 numbers of ‘pi’ are 3.14….which looks like the date “3-14” or “March 14.” Just wait for the celebration in a few years when it’s 3.1415….
