Titus A’s Awful Nice Pie

Titus A’s Awful Nice Pie

TITUS: Hark, villains! I will grind your bones to dust, … and make two pasties of your shameful heads (Titus Andronicus, Act V, Scene iv). Appetizing, eh? As a tribute to arguably the most gruesome dinner party in English literature, I designed a felted, crocheted Elizabethan pasty, or pastry. Choose your flavor: Awful (Halloween-friendly treasure box) or Nice (dinner-friendly wine and drinks coasters).
