How to Make an Edible TRON Pie That Actually Glows

By Andrew Liszewski on at

If there’s one takeaway from either the original 1982 TRON film or the 2010 sequel, Tron: Legacy, it’s that glowing stuff is always kind of cool to look at. To build off this, the talented and creative bakers at Pies Are Awesome managed to make a delicious-looking TRON-themed pie that glows in the dark, but is still safe to eat.

As a kid, you were probably warned not to crack open a glow stick and feast upon the poisonous glowing chemicals inside. So to make an edible glowing pie, the geniuses at Pies Are Awesome mixed some agar-agar — a gelatinous substance derived from algae — with some tonic water and applied it to the pie. Under a black light, the agar/tonic water mixture glows blue, making for an eye-catching dessert that won’t poison your dinner guests. [Pies Are Awesome via That’s Nerdalicious]
