Volume 3: Humble Pie

Cake Zine is a hedonistic exploration of history, pop culture, literature, and art through sweets. The third issue, Humble Pie, features broad interpretations of humiliation and piping hot servings of contrition. Over ninety-six pages of recipes, essays, illustrations, poems, fiction, and photographs, including:

  • A meditation on the limits of recipe-writing by Kate Lebo
  • An investigation into pie as a metaphor for rejection on Love Island by Olivia Crandall
  • A menu of pies to to humble you at any occasion from comedian Josh Gondelman
  • A quixotic quest to demystify the all-American origins of “Japanese Fruit Pie” by Elyse Inamine
  • Ha's Đặc Biệt's recipe for their pop-up mainstay: flaky, savory pâté chaud
  • Desperation pies—inspired by historic recipes popularized in times of scarcity—by Camilla Wynne, Stacey Mei Yan Fong, Kate Ray, Young Cho, and Samuel Grunebaum
  • A cautionary fable exploring the limitations of leniency from novelist Isle McElroy
  • Christina Chaey’s recipe for a Beatrix Potter-inspired meat pie encased in flaky, cheddar pastry
  • Plus an incomplete but illustrious history of pieing, an interview with a DIY venue staying alive by serving pie to punks, an ode to the deep-fried gas station hand pie, and much more.
