edible place cards are my fave

November 3, 2011

These mini pies pull double duty – place cards + dessert/appetizer/cause-for-excitement. Or am I the only one who gets visibly excited over pie?

To make your own simply cut squares of pie dough, fill, fold, dust and bake. I freehanded the letters and baked separately.
As much as I dislike the weather right now, I’m happy it’s baking season.

    So cute! My BFF & I used to always dream up random things to made edible and how people would react and be unsure if they were supposed to eat it or not.

    YUM! These look amazing. Too bad if I tried to bake them, they’d be all lopsided and what not. What a great idea though.

    […] Edible place cards, now you’re speaking my language. This is when you wish you had 15 middle names, so your pie will need a XL serving platter not a dinner plate. Such a cool idea for a table setting. […]
