Since fall just arrived and things are cooling of it is time for some warm, home-made pie. And with the pumpkin spice everything craze I made it orange and brown. This is a quick one that is much faster than baking in from scratch.
Start with a rectangle, add a stoke to the shape.
Select the Free Transform Tool.
Pull the bottom sides in to form the pan.
Use the Direct Selection Tool to select the shape and pull the corner widgets in slightly to round the edges.
Draw a series of circles with a slight overlap on each one.
Use the Direct Selection Tool to select the top half of the merged circles and delete. Select them all, then use the Pathfinder >Unite to merge them into one shape.
Draw and oval that is the same width as the half set of circles.
Set the oval in place, select both the oval and the half circles and join them together. Object>Path>Join or COMMAND + J.
Place the top on the pan.
Draw 3 lines to form the slits in the top of the pie. Set the end caps of the lines rounded (hod dog the ends).
Fill the top and pan with color.
Draw a line for the steam.
Add a Wave Effect to the line. Effect>Distort & Transform>Wave. you want 2 ridges and a very slight, smooth wave.
Use the Width Shape Tool to pull the ends in to a point and pull the center point out to form the steam.
Place the steam on the top of the pie, duplicate it as needed.
Select the pie top and the pan. Duplicate them, Unite them and fill the new shape with white.
Set the opacity of the shape to 20% and CUT the object to paste into the shapes.
Click on the top and choose the Draw Inside Mode at the bottom of the Tool Bar. Choose Edit>Paste In Place. Then click back on Draw Normal mode.
Repeat this process of Draw Inside with the pan, then paste the white shape in place. Done!
