About Lauren Ko

Few baked goods on social media are as visually striking as the perfectly patterned ones made at home by Lauren Ko. Using remarkable mathematical precision in her designs, Lauren is an amateur baker based in Seattle who creates pies and tarts that incorporate amazing design, a modernist-inspired style and a color palette in ways unlike any other. Receiving a ton of press in 2018 for her creativity in the kitchen, Lauren is also a phenom on Instagram with 250K+ followers. Her unconventional pies use fresh seasonal ingredients to create perfectly circular works of art stuffed with yummy goodness that look almost too beautiful to eat… almost.
