As an alternative to expensive multi-tiered wedding cakes and custom wedding candy served via portable cart or complicated buffets, today many brides are opting to serve a variety of pies as a delicious mainstay item on their wedding menus. Some advantages of pies for weddings is that the treat can double as appetizer or dessert, and certain types of pies are perfect for incorporating a sugar free treats option into the menu. Relying on a Huffington Post Weddings blog article, Do the Bride a Favor offers tips for preparing and serving wedding pie.
First, place a large pie at each table at the reception divided into portions from which guests can serve themselves. Minced meat, pumpkin, sweet potato or apple pies are perfect for this application.
Secondly, pass around platters of miniature pies and pie poppers with fruit filling and ornamental cut outs for dessert. As appetizers, think in terms of mini meat pies, tomato pies, quiche, Amish-style “hucklebuck” pies and cream filled fruit cups with fluted pastry shells.
When including pies at the sweets table, use engraved markers designating flavors as well as pie stands decorated with blue ribbons or engraved slogans celebrating the bride and groom. Lastly, specialty mini pies can be gift-wrapped and sent home with guests for them to enjoy later as a unique wedding favor.
Do the Bride a Favor sees the serving of pie at weddings as a definite emerging trend. With its culinary versatility as a food staple, appetizer, dessert treat or even wedding favor, the options for serving wedding pie are limited only by the imagination.
