'Delish' created these comically illustrative recipes that poke fun at the IKEA furniture-building instruction manuals. IKEA is known for creating great furniture paired with impossible guides that appear easy but that actually end up inducing anger and frustration within the builder.
In a comical play on the IKEA manuals, these illustrative recipes re-imagine the instructions and the outcome of holiday meals and baked goods.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Delish created an IKEA-like recipe guide for apple pie. The traditional dessert for a great Thanksgiving treat seems easy, but if IKEA walked each baker through the steps, the comic strip reveals that the end result is the baker chugging back a bottle of wine in front of a store-bought pie. While these comics are humorous, they also address the idea of imagery as recipes instead of written text.
