Pie or Die!
Welcome to the inaugural post of my baking blog! On my original blog for Red Cake Gallery, I was noticing that I was including quite a few baking related posts as opposed to focusing on art and design-y stuff - so, I decided to branch off to create this venue for one of my other obsessions, baking!
I just found out that I will be competing in the upcoming SF Food Wars PIE OR DIE
competition! I will be one of twenty competitors baking pies for this super fun event. My entry is Super Fierce Pecan Buttermilk Pie - one of the pies I baked for my wedding reception. I baked half of the pies at my wedding, and bought the other half from Lois the Pie Queen in Emeryville. But I digress. Back to the competition...the tickets went on sale yesterday at noon, and were sold at by 12:03pm, yikes! You can also check out the NY Times article about the event.
In the coming weeks, I'll write about my preparations for the event along with any random baking banter. And, I will be making some improvements to the look of the site too. Bake on!!!
