Kansas Storm Rips Meringue Off Coconut Cream Pie

Storms can be quite powerful, so much so that they can even disrupt baked goods. A local Kansas baker had the meringue completely ripped off of her coconut cream pie after severe weather hit towns across the state.

Clay County Kansas Emergency Management has been sharing some of the damage reported from the storms of the past week online, including damage from a tornado that took tree limbs down and had water covering roadways.

They also decided to share a local baker’s photo of the damage the storms have caused her to lighten the mood a bit. Nancy Kimbrough shared a photo on her Facebook account of a coconut cream pie that had the meringue ripped right off from the high winds in the area.

“Sooo… we had NO idea it was quite this windy in Clay Center this afternoon. When delivering this Coconut Cream pie, the entire top blew off!! It flew all over the parking lot. Guess there’s a first time for everything!” the post read.

“If you’ve ever had one of local baker, Nancy Kimbrough’s pies, you know this had to be very distressing for the recipient,” Clay County Kansas Emergency Management wrote in their post. “The wind ripped the meringue off the pie and splattered it across the parking lot while she was delivering it. If it was one of her strawberry-rhubarb pies, I would have been curled up under my blanket sucking my thumb and crying like a baby.”

Luckily, that was the only damage reported on Kimbrough’s end.
