Strawberry Fruit Pie Text Effect Photoshop Tutorial
Tutorials Text Effects 28210 Views July 19th, 2014

In this tutorial we are going to create a fruit pie typography in Photoshop. You can use any filling for the pie; I choose strawberry because it is one of the most popular, but you can try with any fruit combination. You only need a realistic pie texture or pattern. The effect can be used not only for text layers; try it with shapes for example. Satisfy you sweet craving by practicing this cool tutorial.


In this tutorial I will show you how to create a realistic fruit pie text effect in Photoshop using any font type. All you need are some sweet cake patterns that you can download from our blog. Or you can use any other texture that you have and like. You can easily adapt this effect to create other types of cakes like cheese pie for example.

Download Source Files

This tutorial has downloadable files like ABR, PAT that you need to install to create this effect. The pack also includes the PSD source file. DOWNLOAD SOURCE Files

Here are some useful Photoshop tutorials and resources that are related to this tutorial and you might want to take a look at.

Let's start with a simple Text layer; type any message you want. You can use any font type. First you have to download the Intro font type, which is a free font type. Learn how to install new font in photoshop from this quick tutorial for beginners.

Next you have to modify the text to create round corners. First rasterize the text layer; right click on the layer and choose Rasterize type. Use this tutorial to create round corners in Photoshop .

I will now use the Paint Bucket Tool to fill the "D" letter; this step is optional.

Call the text layer Strawberry Pie Text. Duplicate the Strawberry Pie Text layer and call it Pie Border. Now we are going to add different layer styles and effects to each layer. We'll start with the Pie Border by adding these styles.

The Pie Border layer should now look like this:

Now create work path using the Pie Border layer. After creating the work path, make a new layer just below this one and call it Pie Deco Border. Download the pie border brush and stroke path using this brush. Make sure you are in the Pie Deco Border layer before you stroke the path. Now delete path (press delete) .

Select the interior of the Pie Border letters using the Magic Wand Tool.

Delete this selection from the Pie Deco Border layer. Merge the two layers and your result should now look like this:

This is the final pie border shape; now all we have to do is to add some layer styles to make it look like a real pie.

The pie border should now look like this:

Return to the Strawberry Pie Text layer and add these layer styles. The strawberry pie texture is included in the PAT pattern file that you will find inside the ZIP file.

Your b>Strawberry Pie Text layer should now look like this:

For the final touches I have added some sugar over the strawberry pie. Pick the Brush Tool, color white and use the sugar brush included in the ZIP file. I have also added a background layer using the table cloth pattern included in the same pack.

So here is the final result for the strawberry pie text effect made in Photoshop using layer styles and pie textures. The tutorial can be practiced also by Photoshop beginners, as it has plenty of references to step by step newbie tutorials.

This is a very ingenious design and I would like to make it. But I have a problem, my brush doesn't want to work. My borders are only inside edges of the letters. Please help me. Thanx. reply

For what I see you made a selection/work path out of the initial text layer. You have to make a selection and a work path out of the Pie Border Layer .... and you should also use a vector shape or a text to obtain good results. Your stroke brush effect looks jagged. reply

I was hung up on the decorative brush stroke path step for a really long time compared to every other step. I had to convert stroke path to smart object, make it a work path, rasterize the layer, then make a stroke path. Where did I go wrong?

I love the look though! Thanks for another fun tutorial! reply
