Getting tarty with Edinburgh Cake Ladies

This photo says it all!  I’ve lost count of how many amazing pies and tarts I tasted at my fourth Edinburgh Cakes Ladies event but it was a lot!  Getting Tarty was the theme for this event at the spectacular Mimi’s Bakehouse on the Shore which meant I actually had to attempt pastry instead of resorting to shop bought.

I settled on one of my favourite tarts (or rather pies) that I had made many times before but never with my own pastry: pumpkin pie.  After a practice attempt at the weekend, I think I pulled it off.

My gorgeous pumpkin pie!

Without further ado though, here are the photos of most of the tarts and pies (I did miss a few). Don’t drool too much!
