Thranduil the Pie Maker

I was late to the Pushing Daisies party. I just caught up with the DVDs around a year ago, and I instantly fell in love with the series and characters and pie and everything. Lee Pace was insanely charming as Ned the Pie Maker. When I heard he would be appearing in The Hobbit film trilogy as Thranduil, I almost jumped up and down from the excitement. Lee Pace in Middle Earth? Yes, please. And it's an entirely different role than I'm used to seeing him in.

As soon as I saw The Desolation of Smaug it hit me that there needs to be Thranduil the Pie Maker art in this world. The internet did not disappoint me - it already existed!

Would you just look at this gloriousness by DeviantArt user Shinga? I can just picture Thranduil slaving over a hot stove in Mirkwood, keeping his pie safe from spiders. I so want this on a t-shirt. And it's not the only mash-up art out there:
If you can count on anyone to bring pie to the family reunion, it's Thranduil. Art by dippindotty.

Bake sale time! He's so cool he needs the shades. Art by YorikoSakakibara.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who likes to mix up pie makers and elves. It's a wonderful combination.
