We Spied Pie!

Congratulations Judges Favorite Award Winner – Madison Street Desserts and  their Meyer Lemon Meringue Pie

It was a fun and successful day at I Spy Pie!, our fun fall fundraiser, at Central Market. We rocked it with so many pie fans supporting Creative Action who purchased pie tasting cards that gave them a chance to sample 10 delicious pies presented by our five bakery participants: Tiny Pies, Texas Pie Kitchen, Central Market Cooking School, Central Market Bakery and Madison Street Desserts. Many thanks our wonderful MC Shana Merlin and to the fun music from Biscuit Brothers and Jungle Jill and the Jaybirds.
