Big pies, mini pies, pie pops!

An all pie table

I was beyond delighted to be able to create this pie table for Elizabeth Howard’s {of the Cordial Cricket - an amazing stationery store!} sister’s wedding. The bride did not want a traditional wedding cake and instead, wanted an all-pie table. I think it was the month of June when I was developing some pie pops for another customer when I thought that it was time to add pies to the Petites Bouchees product list.

Having an all pie table booked was also one way to kickstart this sweet development into gear. Besides, before macarons, pie was my favorite thing. :)

Anyway, here were the pies that were made: blueberry, cherry, apple, sweet potato and pecan. There were three big pies: apple, cherry and pecan the last one being the cutting pie.

I wouldn’t lie and say it was easy. Pies don’t have a long shelf-life and they are best eaten within two days or three (pecan can last a week). I worked 20 hours straight and the apple pie was even slightly warm when I delivered it to the wedding venue.

I wasn’t able to fit all of them on the table, luckily the staff at the Mill at Fine Creek was kind enough to refill.

The mini cherry pies were my favorite little ones to make.  I should just remember next time to assemble them first because when you’re tired and hungry, those lattices can get confusing. ;)
