Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin didn't set out to change the world when she began baking towering, vertically-inclined pies. But now, it's only a matter of time before her epic creations take over wedding cake's coveted spot on the buffet table.
"I'm actually a filmmaker and my formal degree was in graphic design," the Vancouver-based artist told Food & Wine in a phone interview. "Baking was just this random thing that came along. A fluke."
In July 2016, after making a determined New Year's resolution in 2015 to not eat any sugar for a year and–somehow—sticking to it, Clark-Bojin decided to figure out a way to get some sugar-free desserts into her diet. "I really, really like sweets," she laughed. "So, out of desperation for some kind of dessert that didn't have sugar in it, I learned to bake pies without any sugar."
