Earlier this week, the Clooneys made their way to Augusta, Kentucky, Mr. Clooney's hometown, for a family reunion. Among other stops on their tour of how the normos live, they made a visit to Magee's Bakery, where they took this photo with the owners.
It's hard not to love the owners for the way they described this photo on their Facebook page:
It quickly became clear that even when the star of Tomorrowland is around, the real star of Magee's Bakery is the transparent tarts. Russell Dickson, who co-owns the bakery, told E! that George and his wife "both ordered transparents. It's also called clear pie or cellophane pie. It's made of eggs, butter, sugar and milk. It was her first time having one and she absolutely loved it."
Here's a whole bunch of transparents, ready for Amal to declare her love to them:

Apparently, some people call them tarts and some people call them pudding. Them Hollywood types call it Jill Soloway Surprise.
I'm pretty sure this is the protagonist of "Magee's Bakery," the movie:

Sure, Georgie and his wife are nice, but other exciting things happen at Magee's Bakery, too.
"The day started out sort of nice, then the rain moved in." That's what they said when ol' Georgie Boy came home, too.
