My sweet bride has decided she wants apple pie instead of a grooms cake because he doesn't like cake. I need to make up 20 servings for this. What is the best way to go about it?
I know, 20 servings? lol maybe more than 20 of her guests will opt for pie instead of cake, but---20 servings it is!
My question is..how do a make a nice presentation out of this? The wedding cake is simple, with butterflies so I thought I'd add a butterfly or two on top...But does anyone have any suggestions? Do I just do pie pans? Can I present it in a sheet cake pan--or what?? I'd sure appreciate some help here..thanx a bunch!

I would just do pie pans...you could use a butterfly cookie cutter to make designs on the top crust, to tie in with the butterflies on the wedding cake.

I wonder if the bride has seen the movie American Pie? icon_biggrin.gif

Just a thought, but what about doing individual pies in a muffin pan or do them like a turnover. Good luck!

ok...

that will be 3 pies at 8 servings a for a regular 9" pie for a total of 24 servings.

(i always do 10" deep dish, there you could get 10 servings to a pie)

(and if I were at a wedding and had a choice of cake or pie -- PIE!)


I'd do a fancy lattice top for the pie like this with the squiggle edges

then as suggested already, use cookie cutters to make pastry butterflies for the top.

another option:

rustic top like this:

and in center put pastry butterfly

yet another option:

just butterflies for the top crust

I had a groom who wanted apple pie too! I made the pie and then put a fondant drape across it with a special message for the groom from his bride written on it. Sorry I don't have a picture... but just thought I'd mention that you can use fondant for an accent too!

Williams Sonoma has an $8.00 tool that makes individual pies.

Just want to throw this out there. You mentioned putting butterflies on the pies to tie in with the wedding cake. If this were a traditional groom's cake, would you be putting butterflies on it? Not trying to be a smarty pants, but if you wouldn't put the butterflies on the groom's cake, why would you put them on the groom's pie? I'd find out what he's interested in then use that. If he likes football then do football cut-outs, if it's baseball then baseball cut-outs.

I predict a stampede at the groom's pie table and the pie will be gone in 10 seconds flat. icon_biggrin.gif
