Don't be so humble about your pie, Christine McConnell.

The multi-hyphenate artist, baker and photographer shared her latest creation on Reddit with a simple caption: "I made a pumpkin pie."

Within hours, the post found its way to the sharing site's front page and has been viewed more than 400,000 times.

McConnell explains that her first two attempts were not easy as pie, but a pastry net helped move the job along. Use the gallery above to see her stunning creation.

We don't know about you, but we can relate more closely to Instagram user @alexcoley's baking experience.
