17 Pies So Beautiful We (Almost) Don’t Want To Eat Them

Few people can refuse a delicious slice of pie, but Karin Pfeiff Boschek’s creations are (nearly) too beautiful to eat!

The German baker and photographer is an artistic genius in the kitchen! Her passion for pastries came from watching both her grandmothers bake, and she began following in their footsteps as a teenager. These days, she uses dough and fruit to create stunning designs. These 17 are our favorites!

1. Karin said her “inspiration comes from nature, from inanimate objects, and from traditional graphic and geometric designs.”
