Piefest Dozen

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

A dozen Piefests is nice, but I’m really excited for Piefest Bakers Dozen next year.  It will be epic.  Italics!

Piefest Dozen was a throwback to the indoor Piefests of years past.  After two hours setting up tables and everything in the backyard, the sky opened up and drenched our lovely pie-petheater.  Fifteen minutes later, a two very soaked people managed to get everything moved inside.  I don’t think either of us were expecting a lot of people to show up, but man were we wrong.  Piefest 12 had over 30 amazing entries.

Best Cream Pie
It was a great year for cream pies.  The indoor venue kept the cream pie’s worst enemy, Mr. Melty Sun, at bay.  Emily took home Best Cream Pie at her second Piefest with her Bananas Foster Cream Pie.

Best Savory Pie
With only two (on-time) entries in the savory pie category, it was slim pickings, but both were delicious.  Ultimately, “Potonion” took home the award.

Most Ambitious
Shama once again entered a concept pie into the competition with her “Pepto-Pie: The AFTER Piefest Pie Solution.” I’m pretty sure this is the only pie ever to be garnished with Tums. It was… interesting.

Best In Show
And it was such a pretty pie too! Ashley Bauer and Jon Ferguson took home the top prize for the Moloko Stout Caramel Bottomed Pie.
