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.
