If you love eating pies, amateur confectioner Liz Joy’s pies might not be for you. They’re so stunningly beautiful that you might not even feel ok about digging into them. You might want to hang them on your wall or put them in a museum.
From fantasy characters to beautiful nature and much in between, Joy uses the confectionary arts to inspire our imagination (and maybe even our appetites). Let’s have a look at some of her incredible masterpieces.
A Wide Variety of Edible Works
When it comes to designing and baking her beautiful pies, Liz Joy doesn’t limit herself to one style. She explores her creativity through a super wide variety. Look her up on Instagram, and you’ll find pies featuring characters from Game of Thrones, Disney films, famous books, and much more.
She makes confectionary representations of famous paintings. Her repertoire also includes everyday items and pieces of clothing. Plants, flowers, famous landmarks and buildings are also on the menu. And it’s not just pies that she makes. Joy also makes cookies, tarts, chocolates, macaroons, cupcakes, doughnuts, and cakes. Every single treat she makes is exquisitely pretty. Seriously, this baking pro is on fire.
Telling a Story
As we saw, some of Liz Joy’s baked goods portray characters, scenes, or objects we’re all familiar with. But there are others that tell a personal story, something deeply connected to her life and experiences.
For instance, the pie in the above photograph is a representation of her father. It captures a scene from his early life. Joy explained, “My dad was born and raised in Honduras, and my childhood memories will forever be colored with the stories he’d tell us about growing up running wild in the mountains and jungles.” This pie was made on his birthday.
