Remember when Stacey and Joel served mini pies on their wedding day?

I didn't toss my bouquet, wear a garter or "cut the cake" with Joel but we did serve a pie to each guest after dinner which made for a very fun informal alternative to the receiving line. -Stacey

If you love that idea of a pie buffet/receiving line as much as you like the idea of DIYing your wedding desserts, then this is gonna bust your crust:

Think Geek has "personal pie factories" that make four pies simultaneously — from raw to cooked — in under 10 minutes! This little puppy will grant you the power to make your own wedding treats, with any filling you want.

These could even be your delicious edible wedding favors. OMG, my stomach is growling just thinking about it.

Hurry up and grab one of these ASAP because pie factory is currently on sale for only $20!

(Pi day math: $20 + mini pies = budget-friendly wedding dessert!)

  1. I have one of these and I love it! If only I had the same feelings toward dough.

    • I have a little pie maker from a different brand, there are a bunch of them out there. I love mine! In fact, I am making mini peach pies tonight in honor of pie day!

  4. I put one of these on my registry at Target, they have them along with cupcake and donut makers.

  5. I have the other branch which is Babycakes. I have the mini cupcake maker. This post is reminding me that I actually need to go and use it!

  6. Do you think you can make non-dessert pie in this thing, or would it require some precooking of the meat or veggies you'd like to use?

    0 agree
    • I'm guessing, based on the "raw to cooked in under 10 minutes" line above, that you would want to precook most items. The cherry pie filling pictured above is precooked too. A longer cooking time for conventional pies gives the fruits and sugar a chance to gel, but this would not happen in 10 minutes.

  7. I have never seen one of these mini pie makers before. I think my kids would love these (not to mention my husband and I!) I think it was a great idea to serve them at a wedding too. So cute!
