This weekend has been an absolute blur!! On Saturday, I made 16 pies for a friend’s wedding. The wedding was also on Pi day and so naturally, they had pie at the reception! I’ve previously created the Earl Grey Pie just for this wedding. We also served a larger version of the Raspberry Nutella Tarts, Apple Pie, and my all time favorite Chocolate Pudding Pie. If you click on the name it will take you directly to each recipe!
But let me tell you something…making 16 pies are no joke and no easy task. To make sure I had enough of each ingredient, I had calculate the total measurements of each ingredient per pie times four, add each ingredient to other pies, and buy it all in bulk in order for it to be cost efficient. Just to list off a few, I ended up needing 29 cups of flour, 12 cups of butter, 10 cups of chocolate chips, 18 cups of whole milk, and about 120 oz of fresh raspberries. Inanity.
I began to make the pies on Thursday. I created a timetable of items that could be made in advance and items that had to be made as close to the wedding date as possible.
After days of cutting in butter, chilling, rolling, and crumbling graham cracker crumbs, all the shells crusts were FINALLY DONE.
I made four of each kind of pie, which totaled 16. I unfortunately forgot to get a shot of the apple pie.
Once we were able to get the pies safety to the wedding, I was finally able to breath a sigh of relief. The rest of the day was absolutely beautiful. I loved how the wedding venue was effortlessly serene. The bride looked picture perfect next to her groom. A part I love about weddings is that they bring families and friends all together for such a joyous occasion. It was so great seeing old friends again and being able to put all worries aside and just celebrate! Cheers to Bryce+Grace, wishing you both the very best!
