The white tiered wedding cake made its first appearance at the wedding of Queen Victoria and
Prince Albert in 1840. Before that, the 17th Century tradition was for ‘Brides’ Pies’. These savoury
pies had a hidden glass ring inside them and the fair maid who discovered the ring in her slice would
be next to walk down the aisle.

than 38 years ago. Lovingly handmade to order, Pyes Farm champion the finest, freshest, local,
produce and specialise in the handcrafted tradition of a classic farmhouse bakery
The perfect statement centrepiece for a celebration, no party is complete without a Pyes’ Pie which
can be tailored to your favourite fillings from delicious meats to scrumptious vegetarian flavours
then adorned with pretty pastry hearts, initials, lettering or dates to make them truly unique.

Their most popular award-winning wedding pie consists of 3-tiers and feeds around 150 people. The
top tier is a 3kg 9-inch pie followed by a 12-inch 5.7kg pie and at the base a whopping 15-inch 10 kg
monster but you can choose any combination you’d like. They also look amazingly on-trend when
alternately stacked with cheese rounds ensuring a fantastic buffet option fit for a king.
As seen in Harrods of Knightsbridge, bespoke pies, quiches, puddings and tarts are also available.
