If you’re looking for an alternative choice for a wedding cake then a wedding pie is perfect for you! Savoury pies are becoming increasingly popular and is a great choice if you’re planning to marry in the Autumn/Winter season as it creates a warm and cosy atmosphere. This idea would defiantly link in with a country themed wedding or if you’re getting married in a barn as it is an informal choice for a wedding cake. There are hundreds of flavours to choose from but my personal favourites include cherry, coconut cream, blackberry and apple pie! You will love these pies as they can come in different sizes, flavours and can be arranged to be put in tiers so they look like an actually wedding cake. They can also be decorated with flowers and other decorations to link in with your wedding theme.
Why not have a pork pie tiered wedding cake? The layers can be filled with the classic onion marmalade, wild garlic or fig and orange which will defiantly go down as unforgettable pies! They can be made in a variety of shapes including hearts, hexagon, petal shaped, round and an oval. A fun cake alternative is to put a miniature wedding pie on every table so your guests can serve themselves instead of waiting around to be served individually from a four-tiered confection. Or how about pie pops? These cute pies are filled with fruit and are crimped on the side which is a great idea to give your guests for a much needed sugar boost during the late dancing hours. Another idea is to give your guests handmade mini pies to take away as wedding favours so they can enjoy them the following day and keep the jar as a reminder of your special day.
