Our friends Jeremy and Kial got married on March 14. In case you don’t understand the significance, the date (at least in the US) is 3.14.15, or the first few digits of the number Pi. Which also makes it Pie Day! When they got engaged, I begged them to let me make their wedding cake, and when they told me they wanted pies, I was over the moon excited. And then I started thinking of the logistics of making enough pies for an entire wedding. And I got a little concerned, but then I got to planning, which I am great at. We selected 4 different pie flavors: Strawberry rhubarb, cherry, key lime, and candy bar. And I got to it. We needed at least 9 pies for the 80 people addending the wedding. In my experience, if there are different flavors available, people are more likely to go back for seconds to try another flavor. I decided to err on the side of caution, and bring a dozen pies(3 of each type). But I didn’t want to count on not having any terrible mistakes happen, so I made 4 of each type of pie so that if something went horribly wrong, I’d have alternates. First off, I needed 16 pie plates! So I appealed to my local Buy Nothing group, and was able to get 5 plates donated. The remainder were picked up for $3 each at Ross and Goodwill.
