These 58 Pie Crust Designs By German Baker Are Pie-Fection (New Pics)

German baker and photographer Karin Pfeiff-Boschek takes pastry baking to a whole new level that is definitely close to pie-fection. She masterfully arranges dough and fruits into the most beautiful pie crust designs. Vibrant botanical and geometrical ornaments on top of delicious pies make them almost too pretty to eat.

If you think that these pies look straight out of recipe book pages—rightfully so. The artist has published a detailed guide on how to turn your favorite pies into edible works of art in her accurately-titled book “Elegant Pie.”

Many people have started experimenting in the kitchen during quarantine, so here’s a list that will truly challenge your skills and make your mouth water! And excuse us in advance for all the growls in your stomach this may cause. If you are still hungry, check out our previous post with more amazing pies.

Karin Pfeiff-Boschek told Bored Panda that her journey with pastry started in childhood, but didn’t evolve into a profession: “As a child, I enjoyed seeing, smelling, and eating the bread and pastries that both of my grandmothers made. Baking was traditional in our family in rural Germany and when I was a young teenager, I began baking cakes and pastries for my brother and sister.”

“In my twenties, I spent many summers in Paris and was fascinated by the beautiful baked goods in every pâtisserie on nearly every street corner. I did not become a baker, however, but became interested in fabrics, eventually designing, dyeing, and creating my own works of textile art. Nonetheless, I enjoyed baking, often experimenting with various doughs and batters.”

“My American-born husband learned to bake pies from his mother, a prize-winning pie baker and a very good cook. I thought the pies were delicious, but began to wonder whether one could decorate them in a manner similar to the way cakes are turned into works of art. This was just at the time that I opened an account on Instagram and I began uploading pictures of my attempts at pie decoration. To my surprise and delight, the comments were positive, resulting in a rapid rise in the number of followers of my account,” says the artist, who now has an impressive number of over 90k followers on Instagram.
