The Cupcake Craze May Be Over as Pies Make a Comeback
January 21, 2011 - Julie Pryor
Move over Cupcakes, an old-fashioned favorite may soon take your place! The great American Pie is making a big comeback. Delicious pies combine interesting textures and loads of flavor and let's face it, pie is the ultimate comfort food. Even my most high-end clients love serving individual chicken potpies at their events. Shepherds pie – the British favorite - is also a fun way to switch it up for a Sunday supper.
By the way, mini pies make great party favors. So often guests can't resist waiting 'til they get home and start nibbling on them while still in cars! According to The Little Pie Company in New York, the most popular fall/winter flavors are pumpkin, sour cream apple walnut, Mississippi mud and Southern pecan. Meantime, key lime and old-fashioned apple pie are popular year round faves. I suspect with the current pie rage, we'll even see a few pies replace wedding cakes in 2011!
