    Shipping/Delivering Baked Pies & Cream Pies

    Does Cyrus ship their cream pies? Do you know? If so, do they freeze them? Pack them in sort of chilled container? etc?

    Shipping/Delivering Baked Pies & Cream Pies

    I am looking at delivering pies and cream pies 'locally' but am unsure how these should be packaged for local transport? Anyone have any experience doing this or advice? Not only do I want to insure that the pies are intact during transport but also would like to prevent tampering if at all...

    What are the perceived problems with starting a business selling HARD pies?

    And that's what I thought. It's not like someone could get drunk on something like this. Most of it cooks off leaving that flavorful hint behind.... Was just curious because you don't see a whole lot of these kinds of pies sold in pie bakeries...

    What are the perceived problems with starting a business selling HARD pies?

    What challenges, issues, problems, road blocks do you see with starting a niche pie baking shop focused primarily on HARD or 'alcohol' infused pies? For example like Bourbon Peach Hand Pies? Tequila Lime Pie? etc etc?

    What Food Photo is More Appropriate or Enticing?

    This was one of my concerns. Having pastries obviously staged and arranged and looking too commercial or mass manufactured. I don't mind staging them, but for me, the more 'homely' look of pies is part of the allure for me. juices seeping and bubbling out, etc.

    Anyone have any experience freezing a pie to bake later?

    I've never frozen a pie for baking later and would like to know anyone's experience (and equipment used) when doing this? Can a pie be made, wrapped up and put in a residential freezer to freeze it? Or do you need something more elaborate (and expensive) like a BLAST FREEZER?

    What Food Photo is More Appropriate or Enticing?

    Have been having a debate as to what sort of photo on a 'bakery menu' would be more appropriate and/or enticing for customers to view. I would like your opinion as to what you think? Either from personal preference or experience displaying and selling baked goods? Do you prefer a more 'staged'...
