What am I baking on Pi Day?

March 14, 2019

Seattle-based pie baker Lauren Ko has a multitude of non-edible inspirations that influence her creative pastry designs, including textile patterns, architecture, and string art. These elements are woven into her colorful, and often geometric, fruit pies and tarts topped with thin, undulating strips of apples, precisely placed pomegranate seeds, and triangles of radiating strawberries. Often Ko will color a portion of her dough with natural food dyes like beet butter to add even more color to the finished dessert. You can learn step-by-step instructions for how Ko creates her enticing sweets in this video made by Tasty, and follow the evolution of her pies on Instagram.

Today is Doughnut Day and I would like to mention the Blue Goose Market and Bakery in Hancock, Maryland.

What you can find there are the finest apple cider doughnuts on the planet.

They have other bakery, too.

And bears and other gifts, as well as fruit in season.

They are located near the intersection of I68 and I70 in Hancock.  Look for the big flag.

It’s Pi Day!

“Lauren Ko brings mathematical precision to her baking, using elaborate intertwined patterns to form transfixing patterns to the top of her homemade pies and tarts. The Seattle-based amateur baker has been piecrafting for just a couple of years, she tells Mic, and if you’re wondering, this is her favorite pie crust recipe. Ko combines classic crusts with colorful fillings like blueberries, kumquats, purple sweet potatoes, and pluots to create her visually striking sweets. You can follow her on Instagram.”

I thought this was interesting, because I never thought about different grades of butter – or even knew that they existed.  But, my mother had this booklet from the US Department of Agriculture (1968) that explains everything.

Something devious was a foot at the Geauga County Fair in Burton, Ohio earlier this week. In addition to rides, funnel cakes, and animal exhibits, the fair featured close to 1,500 exhibits in the baked goods category.

Footprints in the frosting led investigators to conclude that a raccoon had helped him or herself to samples from the Best in Show exhibit indicating that the critter has good taste.

“Critter or critters unknown, favored yeast bread, miscellaneous bread (actual categories), muffins, scones, strawberry-surprise pie, chocolate cake, and in the men’s category: peach pie.”

Who am I kidding?  These amazing creations are by Iven Kawi . . .

“Jakarta-based pastry chef Iven Kawi says she made her first honest attempt at baking in December of 2013 when she made a batch of Christmas cookies for her daughter’s school. As you can see, things have progressed quite a bit. Kawi now runs a bakery shop out of her home in Lippo Karawaci called Iven Oven where she creates elaborately decorated baked goods. Among her specialties are cakes adorned with terrarium environments where buttercream frosting is sculpted into an abundance of cacti and flower petals atop beds of crumbly sand or dirt. You can follow more of her work on Instagram. “
