so i have been trying to make pies and im not half bad Smiley my big problem is that i can not seem to find a tute on making a crosshatched pie top! I will take any suggestions if they get me that much closer to the perfect little clay pie!

                    Thanks a bunch!

What exactly are you having trouble with?  . . . creating the strips for the lattices? weaving them on top of the pie? which order to do them in? or what?

Here's at least one photo of lattice-crust pies:

(For those Jane used Translucent Liquid Sculpey mixed with brown
ochre paint applied with a foam eye shadow brush, but other things could be used for the color too.)

If you wanted wavy edges on your lattice pieces, you could cut the strips with a ravioli cutter or a "wavy" blade (some are sold for polymer clay, or use a garnish cutter, etc., or even those wavy attacher things for making frames from wood at art supply or hardware stores).

She was talking about pies, not cupcakes, I think.

Basically just cut or roll strips of clay and weave (basic plain-old over-under) them or lay them in a grid pattern.  Just like making a real pie.
