Nerdie Foodie: Waitress the Musical

Welcome back Nerdie Foodies! Pi Day is just around the corner. This week we are looking at pies from Waitress the musical. If you’re wondering, yes, the Broadway-hit musical Waitress is based off of the movie of the same name. Be sure to check out last week’s post here). Let’s see what kind of pies we will be getting today!

Lulu’s Strawberry Dream Pie

This cutie, Henry B, shows us how to make this dreamy pie on his YouTube channel! The kid has a ton of potential! Check out the fun video below! If he can make this pie, then so can you!


Pie Bites

Don’t want the mess of a regular pie slice or have time to sit down and eat? Why not try one of these fun-sized pie bites (they remind me of Pop Tarts) from BwayZone. Check out the recipe below!


Devil’s Food Chocolate Oasis Pie

People Magazine’s Food section invited Stacy Donnelly from Cute as Cake to show them how to make one of the signature pies from Waitress. Stacy is the musical’s official pie consultant! Not going to lie, I would love to have that job! Check out the video below and the full recipe here!

Bonus Pie

If you’ve made it this far into the post – fabulous! We have another celebration today as well. Today marks the 20th Anniversary of the first episode of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer airing on our television screens. So, in honour of Pi Day and Buffy, the Sugared Nerd shares with us her recipe for Strawberry Staked Hand Pies. Check out the recipe here! I think Sarah Michelle Gellar would approve.

Get your tickets here to Waitress the musical (and fresh pie!) if you’re near the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York City! If you’re hankering to bake a pie, you can pre-order a copy of the official pie book here!

Hint hint, cough cough, Broadway Across Canada, can we get Waitress the musical to come over here to the West Coast? Pretty please with a cherry on top?

Stay nerdalicious!
