When it comes to making beautiful (and yummy) desserts, your grandmother’s pies were probably bar none, the cream of the crop, that is, until you met Lauren Ko. This talented pastry chef from Seattle creates spectacular pie designs will make totally make you revaluate the humble dessert pie. She’s only been in the pie business for a year, but she’s produced some mind-blowing dishes. Her 118K Instagram followers have taken note and cannot wait to see what’s baking in her oven.
Ko’s artistic take on dessert is what makes her really stand out. With sugar-coated brushstrokes and dipped buttercream toppings, it almost breaks your heart to dig a knife into these beauties. Her pies are intricately latticed and mosaic concoctions usually exposing delicately arranged fruit fillings that just make your mouth water.
When explaining her passion for the decorative pies, she says, “I usually have some nebulous ideas in my head for design and then just improvise them as I go along. She also added depending on how well the fruit or dough incorporates with my vision is one thing I consider.” She further added that “my final products are happy accidents, which is why I’m especially stunned by the feedback.”
Without further ado, here are her exquisitely crafted pies that are undoubtedly finger-licking good.
